The Highsnobiety Winter Wardrobe Manual is a guide to dressing well when temperatures plummet. Expect big coats, padded pants, snug accessories, and hibernation-ready homeware.
Have you ever seen an Angora goat? No? Well, the coat of this shaggy goat, which mostly resides in China, is so majestic that it’s no surprise mohair has become one of the most highly sought-after wools in recent seasons. While mohair is no newcomer — think Kurt Cobain’s iconic MTV Unplugged cardigan — the distinctive hairy material is coming into its own again, and with winter upon us, it’s the perfect textured topper for your layered fits.
While Cobain's legendary cardi fetched a wild $334,000 when it sold at auction, you don't need to drop that kind of cash to get a luxury upgrade to your WFH hoodie.
From Saint Laurent scarves to bold sweaters from Marni, this selection shows the versatility of mohair and it’s a pretty strong argument in favor of mohair reigning supreme when it comes to the world of wool.
Keep scrolling to see the mohair clothing and accessories we're copping this season.
