Side Slope Cardigans by Hiroki Wakisaka

It’s summer here in the third world (spring in the northern hemisphere) and these statement-making bright, colourful cardigans by Side Slope are calling my name. I’d wear them with khaki shorts, perhaps a tank or a shirt underneath and a big ol’ granny necklace and voila, the look is soo me. You can even wear something fantastic like a beige Burberry trench on top of it.

Side Slope by Hiroki Wakisaka cardigans

Red v-neck cardigan and blue v-neck cardigan, £365 both from Oki-ni.

The wooden buttons are a nice personal touch, no?

Side Slope is a Milan-based Japanese brand founded by Hiroki Wakisaka in 2005. Wakisaka is passionate about knits, placing emphasis on craftsmanship and technical skill. They even own their workshops.

Alas, these beautiful and unique cotton knit cardigans don’t come easy on the pocket.

Approx. US$550 each is the price to pay for something that special.

  1. Awesome cardigans. Love them.
    BB, you should do a formspring acct! Or do you have one already?

  2. They are so pretty! I wish Malaysia would start having random outfit runway shows of clothes like these. But there seems to be a lack, or I’ve just been living under a rock all this time.

  3. Fantastic colours! I used to look to Missoni & Christian Lacroix for my knitwear – I may try to see more of this new brand before buying another item.
    PS. Did I mention you were, well, mentioned in Madame Figaro’s latest fashion issue?

    These are amazing! This is a great example of where art and fashion collide. J’adore.

  5. Fabulous cardigans! So original…..and come to visit my blog I have a nice beautiful giveaway this week. PLEASE!!!!!

  6. Am I the only one drooling over this model? The cardies are fantastic, of course, but this creature of a guy is so stunning it is offensive! Thanks bryanboy ;)
