This high neck sweater is made of a hyper soft wool and cotton blend with a warm yet breathable texture and twisted cable and rib knit. It has a body cut with dropped shoulders, mock neck collar and thin, bright purple stripes give this marinière-inspired sweater a grunge feel.
Kurt Cobain hadn't been famous long before the world became aware of his penchant for fuzzy, defiantly unpolished sweaters of the thrift-shop variety. It was April, 1992: "Nevermind" had reached No. 1 on the charts that January and soon-to-be-iconic images of the Nirvana frontman were establishing his close relationship with knitwear.
Whether striped, checked or slubbed, there is something familiar and both comfortable and comforting about them—an unslick vulnerability that speaks to grunge's sweet side. And in a way that the anti-fashion Mr. Cobain might even have endorsed, there is no prescribed way to wear these sweaters.
