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 an...
