Gyles & George Unisex Heart Sweater
"I had the idea for this jumper a couple of Valentine's Days ago and wore it when I attempted to kiss Anne Diamond on TV-am for no less than three minutes and five seconds. I wanted to break the record for the longest screen kiss currently held by Jane Wyman and Regis Toomey whose osculatory marathon is the high point of the 1940 film You're In the Army Now. Anne and I might have made the record books had our attempt not been abruptly interrupted by live coverage of President Brezhnev's state funeral in Moscow." - Gyles Brandreth
100% lambswool crewneck sweater, made with love in Portugal from the highest quality yarns. Dry clean only.
This sweater runs true to size.
Gyles & George is, according to Gyles himself, "British knitwear with a sense of humour, designed to make people smile."
In the early 1980s, Gyles Brandreth and George Hostler teamed up to create a range of original jumpers featuring bright colors, droll phrases, visual puns, and trompe l’oeil images. Over the years, the pair designed hundreds of individual “wit knits"" — many of which were worn by contemporary luminaries like Elton John and Diana, Princess of Wales, who popularized the now-iconic “I’m a Luxury” sweater — and produced four books featuring their charmingly cheeky and colorful patterns.
Today, the brand is sharing its beloved retro designs with a new generation. Its 100% lambswool and cotton sweaters and accessories feature the same designs that made the original jumpers so popular; now, over 40 years later, Gyles & George’s “joyful jumpers” are still making people smile."
