“This is part of our exclusive capsule collection with Balenciaga. I earmarked this hoodie as soon as I saw it, and I don’t plan on wearing anything else between now and June.”

Robert Nowill, global content and style editor at Farfetch


Trekking Sweatshirt



Buy at Matchesfashion

“What I love about Phipps is the combination of high fashion and functionality within his designs. This bold striped trekking fleece is a strong style statement made from activewear fabrics durable enough for hiking.”

Damien Paul, head of menswear at MATCHESFASHION


Cactus Print Layered Sweater



Buy at Browns

“NOUNION is a British brand exclusive to Browns. This photo print sweatshirt with added panel is a great layering piece for this season.”

Knitted Sweater


Raf Simons

Buy at tres bien

“Raf’s knits have been super strong the past few seasons. This sweater was my go-to for Paris fashion week. It’s a bit flashy with the lurex yarn and the cut out makes it a fun layering piece over a contrasting shirt or t-shirt. ”

Jesse Hudnutt, buyer at TRÈS BIEN


Renshaw Sweater



Buy at italist US

“Burberry is making a comeback. No longer just trench coats and plaid shirts — it’s remaining relevant by putting out sweatshirts and tees with a throwback logo, perfect for the current logomania trend.”
