It isn’t news to hear that jumpers and knitwear are a big trend for winter and while the word ‘jumper’ may hold connotations of warmth and coziness, for most of us this winter wardrobe staple brings to mind awful Christmas presents of the past with loud garish designs, not unlike the infamous reindeer jumper worn by Mr. Darcy in Bridget Jones’ Diary (don’t worry, Colin Firth, we forgive you).

However, this AW11 the humble jumper has really come into its own. On the catwalk, red carpet and streets, bold and brash knits are brightening up our winter months. Featuring eye-catching motifs and patterns in bright, bold colours this seasons’ jumper is an absolute must-have piece.

And who better to turn to for your knitwear fix than the French designer Sonia Rykiel.  Her trademark knitwear and designs have led her to reign as ‘the queen of knitwear’ for the past forty years and this season her bright colourful sweaters are right on trend.

Make a statement this winter with a bright, bold knit from the Sonia by Sonia Rykiel range but Please Don’t Tell…
