This week’s most stylish intel from our brothers-in-arms at UrbanDaddy.
Fashion Week has kicked off in earnest, and we’ve already spotted a few clever details we’re eager to see in stores. At the top of the list: the wide-necked sweater.
It’s like the boat neck on your typical Breton-striped sweater, but this one doesn’t taper to a point on the side. Really, it’s just a bigger, wider version of the crew neck. This one, seen at Hyden Yoo, doesn’t give away any nautical elements at all, aside from a knit that’s slightly thicker than usual.
Mostly, it’s more room for layering collars and ties—and good news for the Constanzas of the world.
Hyden Yoo has been a New York boutique mainstay for some time, but after seeing his Spring/Summer ’09 collection, we’re ready for him to jump into the world of department store pop-ups and fast-fashion collaborations.
Between this angular three-piece and the asymmetrical cardigan after the jump, he’s earned a much higher profile than he has. Our only complaint is the Keffiyeh-esque scarf. It may be time to give that one back to the Palestinians.
