Juergen Teller, Bella Hadid, and Anna Wintour were at the Balenciaga's couture show in Paris last year, bearing witness to, alongside a long list of other standout pieces, look 38 — a zip-up, grey hoodie. It was ultra-basic, but it looked plush as hell.

As if the humble hoodie, which many of us have relied upon more than ever in the stay-home era, needed more vindication — Demna and Balenciaga go and stick the most simple of staples on the most anticipated of runways. This was Balenciaga’s first physical couture show in a huge fifty-three years and it served as a reminder of the love this hard-working garment deserves.

This is the wardrobe essential that can do pretty much anything. As well as couture runways, it’ll handle fall evenings, long dog walks, nights in, nights out, and everything in between. Hoodies are crazy tough, too. Good ones will brush off years of mistreatment, hot washes, and begrudged borrows and still be solid.

Of course, your trusty Uniqlo one might be fine, but with the above in mind, we're turning to exceptionally high-quality hoodies that are worthy of a little more investment. While we patiently await more from Demna's latest take on the staple, we've picked out some luxe options from the likes of Affix, Diomene by Damir Doma, and Maison Margiela.
