Sure, Spring/Summer collections are jostling for space on brand pages right now which means that heavyweight jackets and boots are the ones to lose out. But there are certain garments that remain in the wardrobe no matter what the season. Knitwear is one of them. Whether it’s for a layered fit in the cold of winter or a lightweight merino sweater for a slightly chilly summer evening, having the right knitwear is not a single-season thing, it’s an all-year-long thing.

Need any proof? Look through almost any SS22 collection and you’ll see an uncharacteristically strong wool contingent this year. We’ve been taken aback by how many sweaters we’ve got on our shopping lists despite the warmer weather pending.

With the help of MATCHESFASHION, we’ve rounded up 10 of the best knitwear pieces from the latest collections. Ranging from bold The Elder Statesman editions to a fruit-embellished vest by JW Anderson, this selection proves that knitwear is going nowhere.

Shop the best knitwear of the season below.

Crescent Moon Sweater


Marine Serre

Buy at Matches

Marine Serre’s entry in today’s roundup shows off the brand’s effortless cool as well as its technical prowess. It’s not easy to make a sweater look this immaculate with unfinished threads. The inside-out effect is perfect with an intarsia Crescent logo to the reverse.

Cabled Polo Sweater


Polo Ralph Lauren

Is it a polo shirt? Is it a cable-knit sweater? We have looked at this garment long and hard and we’re no closer to deeming whether it’s one or the other. That’s quite a useful asset when it comes to styling, though.

Lawrence Sweater

Knitted by Manos Del Uruguay — a non-profit organization based in Uruguay — this cashmere sweater is strikingly beautiful. Not only in its construction but also the rich orange hue.

Triple-Collar Sweater



Buy at Matches

Glenn Martens cannot create something traditional, it’s just not him. He does, however, use the classics as his source material. This sweater has all the hallmarks of a classic, but the triple collar offers an eye-catching departure from the norm.

JW Anderson’s last collection saw fruit and vegetables, in particular radishes, become punchy details for classic menswear pieces. That trend continues this season with this sweater vest.
