The Christmas sweater has won over time lots of criticisms and love, he went through ups and downs like an entrepreneur's life.
A symbol of self-deprecation, second degree and togetherness.
The tradition dates back to the 19th century, when people in rural England and Ireland began knitting woolen sweaters to keep warm during the long, cold winters.
Bright colors and fancy designs, such as Christmas trees, reindeer and stars, the end of year schoolboy accessory.
A popular fashion accessory making silhouettes look effortlessy and cool.
Over time, they grew in popularity in Europe and North America and became the holiday season staple. Worn at parties, festive events and fashion runways.
Even Claudia Schiffer adopted it in a chic couture Chanel look, mixing a printed knit sweater with a soft transparent skirt, highlighted with a chic belt.
Declining during the 90s, this famous sweater lost its splendor and passed into the outdated and ugly clan.
However nowadays, the Christmas sweater tradition is celebrated around the world, with competitions, fashion shows and special events held for the occasion.
A blend of fashion and fun reflecting the joyful and warm Christmas spirit gathering people to share moments of conviviality and good humor.
It has also gained in diversity, with original and modern designs, inspired by films, music and famous people.
A second-rate affair with a cool and dusted connotation and a precious cultural heritage spanning centuries to become an iconic element.
It celebrates creativity, festive spirit and human warmth and offers a unique opportunity to share happiness and cheerfulness with others.
International Christmas sweater day is now an annual event, pushing consumers to buy a sweater just for a laugh.
An opportunity for fast fashion industries to make quick profits with unethical and unechological products. The damages are no longer unknown.
In the end, nothing’s better than an old sweater from our wardrobe, recycled and customised having experienced several christmases from a table to another or digged out in a thrift store.
A beautiful journey ! 🙌
