5 of the best… French slogan jumpers
Bonjour, sexy new knitwear! These chic slogan jumpers are guaranteed to add a little je ne sais quoi to any ensemble - we adore.
With spring finally arriving (well, just about), here’s the perfect transitional piece for your wardrobe. The French slogan jumper has been a feature of our must-buy list since Bella Freud first released her signature collection. Now there are loads more affordable options all over the high street. This knit-with-attitude adds a little Gallic insouciance to any outfit, making a scruffy bun and gym trainers look chic (croissant in hand optional). Voilà.
The original and best (albeit spendy), Bella Freud’s cashmere Je t’aime Jane sweater is the design that launched a thousand homages. This one’s dedicated to Jane Birkin so you will be as chic as her if you wear it (probably).
Warehouse is a bonafide high street hero right now. Case in point: this Merci design. If the red is de trop for you, it also comes in navy (a Muddy staffer is wearing that one as I write) and baby pink.
Ille de Cocos
If you’ve not heard of this indie knitwear brand, get them on your radar tout suite. Founder Deola Charles was inspired by the mega-chilled Cocos Island in the Pacific and cool-girl London style. We reckon she’s nailed it with this slim-fit cashmere beauty.
No hiding in this fabulous fuschia sweat from hush. Pair it with jeans now, then throw it over a slinky slip dress on summer evenings.
