“At Christmas time there’s no need to be afraid…” Regardless of whether you remember this sentence falling from the lips of Paul Young, Kylie Minogue or Chris Martin, there have never been truer festive words sung. Friday 14th is a call to knitted clad arms for people to get out their Crimbo Jumpers and wear them with pride. Now deemed Christmas Jumper Day, we are encouraged to wear our most embarrassing jumpers to raise money for Save the Children.
Thankfully, you don’t have to rely on your Gran’s nimble needlework as the High Street is stuffed with all manner of knits that can melt even the iciest of Bah-humbug filled hearts. Proving this very point, i-D Fashion Editor has picked out the 5 of the best. ”I have selected 5 of my favourite Christmas Jumpers kindly modelled by the men that help make i-D tick,” Elgar explains. Brace yourself Ladies and Gentleman and Merry Christmas…
