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.

Marine Serre Crescent Moon Sweater
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.
Polo Ralph Lauren Cabled Polo Sweater
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.
Wales Bonner Orchestre Sweater
Wales Bonner has concocted a masterpiece of a color scheme for the Orchestre sweater. Woven from pure linen, it’s a dream during the warmer months, too.
Jil Sander Sleeveless vest
Talk about masterful color palettes. We don’t expect anything less from Luke & Lucie Meier, but this color-block sweater vest goes above and beyond the call of duty.
Gabriela Hearst 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.
Y/Project Triple-Collar Sweater
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.
The Elder Statesman Swirl Jacquard Sweater
The Elder Statesman is basically the gold standard in knitwear. This pure cashmere sweater demonstrates the brand’s penchant for combining material expertise with a solid dose of playful decoration.
JW Anderson Strawberry Sweater Vest
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.
Gucci Zip-Sleeve Sweater
It’s just a classic oversized cable knit sweater until you realize that there are zip fastenings to each arm. This convertible sweater is definitely a taste of something new for knitwear.
YMC Crewneck Sweater
If you’re on the search for a simple, understated sweater that will never go out of style then you can bypass all the brash decoration for this YMC sweater.
