 Fashionspam's Winter Favourite!

Balancing a playful sensibility with a grown-up silhouette, this Jil Sander dinosaur intarsia sweater reflects the blend of youthful and subervise energy that characterised the label's FW12 collection. The knitted camel and wool-blend fabric has a homely feel which is starkly contrasted by the colours and sharp design. Take a styling tip from the catwalk show and wear this piece over a white shirt and black tailored trousers.Shown here with a Paul Smith shirt and trousers, Alexander McQueen boots and a Drake's tie.

Inspired by traditional Navajo patterns, this YMC sweater is a contemporary autumn essential. It has been knitted in sharp shades of grey and searing orange from soft lambswool for comfort and warmth on crisp mornings. Layer this rustic piece under a waxed-cotton jacket and add some leather boots for rugged appeal. Shown here with an Aubin & Wills gilet, A.P.C. shirt and shoes, and Edwin jeans.


Stay a step ahead of the pack with Jil Sander's whale intarsia sweater. Seen on the FW12 catwalk, this statement piece mixes youthful exuberance with a touch of luxury. Take inspiration from the show styling and wear it over a crisp white shirt and black tailored trousers for a progressive casual look. Shown here with a Paul Smith shirt, Alexander McQueen trousers and Church's shoes.

Burberry Prorsum has developed a looser, wider shawl collar in recent seasons to provide its knitwear with new vigour. This patterned version is an excellent example, knitted from fine cashmere for a luxurious finish. Take inspiration from the label's runway show and layer it under a blazer and over a shirt for an up-to-date take on dapper style.Shown here with an Yves Saint Laurent shirtJil Sander trousersRaf Simons shoes and aDolce & Gabbana tie.

Inspired by the iconic cartoon character Charlie Brown, there's nothing fictional about the quality of Michael Bastian's Italian-crafted cashmere sweater. Wear this punchy crew neck design with classic selvedge denim and a robust leather jacket for a strong city look. Shown here with a Michael Bastian jacket, NN.07 jeans and Grenson shoes.
