Where the runway meets the street

Cable-knitted from soft merino wool, overlaid with a large cotton fleece panel on both sides, and punctuated with silver zips at the waist, this new sweater from Balmain succeeds in a look that’s equal parts edgy and luxurious. In classic all black, the design is reminiscent of protective motorcycle leathers – fully in keeping with the French fashion house’s biker aesthetic – although the super soft feel of the materials are anything but tough and rugged. If that’s how you like to ride, it’s on sale now over at MR PORTER.
