This mid-season V-neck is knitted from lightweight merino wool which was garment dyed, adding subtle variations of colours to its seams. Its wide rugby collar and fitted body were inspired by James Dean’s signature East of Eden knit. Fully finished sleeves, ribbed cuffs and hem complete its varsity-inspired finishings; think coming-of-age leisurewear with a rebellious streak.
A symbol of 1950s Hollywood, James Dean crafted himself a personal style so distinct it would define the look of rebellious youth forever: a classic white T-shirt, a cropped jacket and worn-in blue jeans were the core elements. Varsity-inspired styles mixed in, playing irreverently with the preppy tropes of post-war America.
