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.
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.
