Rampart against the cold, the Irish sweater finds a strong caution fashion. The proof by 10.
It was in the early 1900s that the traditional Irish sweater was born on the archipelago of the Aran Islands, located in Galway Bay. Originally, it was intended to protect fishermen from bad weather during the long and harsh winter season. Moreover, the twists often present on this basic piece refer to the knot of fisherman, reinforcing the authentic spirit that inspires the creators.
A few years ago, the French brand Gerard Darel brought it up to date by creating a model called “Marilyn”, honoring the actress Marilyn Monroe who wore an Irish sweater in The Millionaire. Since then, it continues to be revisited by creators such as Alexander McQueen or Andrew Gn. Even the stars adopt it from every angle: Gisele Bündchen, Sienna Miller and Rachel Bilson are among its followers.
