Gyles & George Zodiac Collection
Gyles & George — the cheeky British knitwear label patronized by the likes of Elton John and Princess Diana in the 1980s — is introducing a new line of lightweight cotton sweaters celebrating the signs of the zodiac. The twelve unique designs are from Gyles & George’s original knitting pattern books, which have their own cult following.
The label’s quirky designs, which include the famous “I’m a Luxury” sweater, are the creations of George Hostler, an artist and sculptor, and Gyles Brandreth, a former member of Parliament and founder of Britain’s Teddy Bear Museum.
Gyles & George has experienced a resurgence in recent years after collaborating with Rowing Blazers to bring back the “I’m a Luxury” sweater, but the Zodiac collection marks the label’s first major new collection since the 90s.
The unisex collection of lightweight, 100% cotton knitted sweaters consists of one unique design for each of the twelve signs of the zodiac: Aries, Taurus, Gemini, Cancer, Leo, Virgo, Libra, Scorpio, Sagittarius, Capricorn, Aquarius and Pisces.
