Banning the idea that Christmas jumpers only invite ridicule around the dining table, Net-a-Porter has asked a host of designers to create their own versions of the so-bad-it’s-good knits. Some might be more daring than others, but all are guaranteed to be a party season favourite. Meadham Kirchhoff’s embroidered golden baubles on a garish red jumper is inspired by 1960’s gift paper, and Emma Cook’s knit features a massive reindeer on the front. On the classic end of the spectrum, 3.1Phillip Lim has designed a hopeful white Christmas number with snowflakes; while Preen, Maison Martin Margiela and Tibi embrace suitably warm and wintry themes with Christmas trees, reindeers and giant penguins. Other designers are: Maje, Richard Nicoll, Chinti & Parker, Marc Jacobs, Aubin & Wills and Banjo & Natilda.
