The soft side
of winter

How to face cold weather with the warmth of a heavy sweater.
A

thick, soft, and enveloping sweater is synonymous with notion that winter warms the heart, but it also has a practical value as a key element of any wardrobe. The sweater was traditionally considered an item for leisure time as its most indispensable quality, its thickness, can make it unsuitable to wear under a jacket such as a blazer. A overcoat, on the other hand, is very convenient to wear over a sweater and makes a nice and practical ensemble for a day out on the weekend, for instance.

What is the best material for tackling the cold?


Thanks to its natural thermoregulation properties, wool (and wool blends), are of course the ideal materials coping with more frigid temperatures. In terms of warmth, Zanone offers a variety of high quality wools such as merino - the softest and most precious among sheep wools - in addition to less common materials such as angora and yak wool.

Both merino and yak wool deliver warmth and softness without being too cumbersome, the latter being an excellent alternative to cashmere as it’s heavier but just as soft. Equally versatile is a wool and cashmere jumper; with a shawl collar and pop of color, it’s perfect for adding a touch of character to an informal outfit.


All garments have a classic slim fit, one of Zanone's trademarks, which gives each piece a consistently elegant look whether worn alone or over a shirt.


A touch of color


The beautiful thing about winter sweaters is that they give us a little more freedom in terms of colors and imagination because they are made to be worn on less formal occasions.

You can experiment with color, or a more daring pattern, while maintaining impeccable style without verging on the dreaded “Christmas sweater” look. The angora turtleneck epitomizes our interpretation of a great winter sweater: the ombre color, thoughtful cable knit, and slim fit make for a refined look that still has character. It’s just as appropriate for a stroll in the woods as it is for going into town- a testament to the balance of personality and sophistication that can be seen in Zanone knitwear.
