Make grandma proud with YMC at Violent Green
Expressing your sartorial splendour through eye-catching patterns is not a luxury limited only to the ladies. Following on from the redux of the Christmas jumper, which made the transition from hideous to cool last year, the Fair Isle Knit Long Sleeve Crew Neck from YMC (You Must Create) is reminiscent of something your grandmother might have once knitted you.
Knitted from 100% cotton, the lightweight jumper is a good option to combat the impending (slight) chill of the coming months, which, let’s face it, doesn’t always warrant the need to break out the winter woollies.
Born in 1995, YMC has matured to be amongst the most respected purveyors of British modernist clothing, following the Corbusian philosophy that form follows function. Aiming for timeless rather than fleetingly cool, the YMC creative team’s moniker comes from a famous quote by iconic industrial designer (and first ever to feature on the cover of Time) Raymond Loewy, who once emphatically remarked, “You must create.”
You can slip your arms into the Fair Isle Knit and other YMC wares at Violent Green’s CBD-based store in Elizabeth Arcade.
