SOME LIKE MEN'S FASHION
Whether chic, like those worn by Grace Kelly, or colourful, so representative of the look of Michelle Obama, cardigans are back on the fashion map and are a substitute for jackets and suits, as long as they are “over”, just as the general (after whom the cardigan was named) wanted it to be that is,
During the Twenties, Coco Chanel reinterpreted the cardigan by adding a touch of femininity.
Needless to say, actresses Grace Kelly, Ingrid Bergman, Elisabeth Taylor and Doris Day, just to mention some, were immediately captivated.
During the 60’s and the 70’s, the twin-set became the uniform of young polite girls, elder ladies and even grandmothers, while all the others absolutely loathed them for almost forty years.
Now that it has become current again, it has been realized by many designers and it is suitable for all age groups.
