A stylish Winter

Written by ogo on . Posted in Cozy Chic Sweaters

Just because the temperature is dropping and the snow is falling, is no reason to let your style diminish. The array of sweater choices is endless – choose a bright color, or a luxe fiber, or a fanciful pattern, or embellishment with bling. Staying warm doesn’t have to be boring.

Keep a selection of cardigans in your wardrobe, to add a layer of warmth with a layer of style. Those same cardigans will double as outerwear for tropical vacations, whether this means beachfront evening breezes or windy nights on a cruise ship, and to ward off summer time air conditioning chills. The right cardigan can pull together an entire outfit – so go ahead and acquire some with prints, fabric panels, embroidery and applique.

Don’t forget the newest selection of wafer thin, thermal shirts, now available high-end, low-end and at every venue in between, to wear beneath your layered sweaters for guaranteed cozy warmth on the frostiest of days and nights.

The sweaters shown in these photos are, or soon shall be, for sale on the OgoVintage etsy shop. Please contact OGO to claim your stake for those not yet listed. Each is one of a kind at OgoVintage, and when it’s gone, it’s gone…

Kay Cosserat knitwear at the V&A Museum in London and at OgoVintage

Written by ogo on . Posted in Cozy Chic Sweaters, Exquisite Ensembles

Once in awhile a design talent stands out from the rest, and continues to garner recognition, despite the too-early demise of the esteemed designer.  Such is the case with the British textile and knitwear designer, Kay Cosserat, who tragically passed away at an early age, leaving far too few examples of her striking knitwear designs.  The Victoria and Albert Museum in London has several items of Kay Cosserat knitwear in their permanent costume collection.  Kay Cosserat was a member of the British Royal Designers of Industry.  OgoVintage is fortunate to have a 3 piece Kay Cosserat ensemble, with a full skirt, sweater top, and thick, double layer sweater coat, available on the OgoVintage etsy shop.  Link to the OgoVintage etsy shop listing:

Vintage 80s Wool Tunic with embroidered designer names

The IKAT’s popularity can be traced to the hand dyed and hand woven nature of these designs, consistent with the popularity of wearable art.  This authentic IKAT sweater tunic has a classic 80s slouchy shape, and an ombre effect in shades of black and white, and gray.
