We love sipping on a Koppaberg a little more than our liver probably likes us to at House of Coco. And now that winter is here it’s likely we will be sipping a few more, in front of the fire and wearing our Kopperberg winter knit.
Kopparberg have cosied up with London-based designer knitwear label Leutton Postle this winter to create ‘The Kopparberg’, a luxurious knitted jumper that brings to life the warm and festive Spiced Apple cider and is the perfect piece of clothing to embrace the colder weather in.
While novelty festive jumpers have had their day, the stylish winter knit continues its reign as a permanent seasonal wardrobe staple. With this in mind, limited-edition Kopparberg jumpers for men and women will be sold at London’s most creative independent boutique, Machine A in Soho. Here, ‘The Kopparberg’ will sit alongside Leutton Postle’s highly acclaimed current collection and pieces from the UK’s most prestigious emerging designers.
The jumper gives the wearer a cosy sensation, reflective of sipping on a warm Kopparberg Spiced Apple cider and its colour pops of red are inspired by the appealing shade of the sweet red apples that the cider is made from. Also featuring bursts of yellow and blue, these colours hint to the golden yellow leaves found in the Swedish town of Kopparberg at this time of year and the town’s crystal clear lake.
To draw inspiration for the design, long-time collaborators and friends Sam Leutton and Jenny Postle took a trip to the intriguing and beautiful Kopparberg. The result – bold geometric shapes that echo the form of the town’s autumn leaves and angular falun red barns nestled in the countryside laid over a fresh deconstructed take on the traditional ‘fair isle’ knit pattern.
In recent years, Leutton Postle have taken the fashion world by storm with their craft-led collections and extraordinary attention to detail. Since graduating from Central Saint Martins in 2005, their designs have been found gracing the glossy pages of Vogue, i-D, Dazed & Confused and Nylon and they have built a loyal fashion fan base including Lady Gaga, Bjork and Susie Bubble.
Commenting on the collaboration, Leutton Postle said: ‘We designed ‘The Kopparberg’ to have an offbeat yet wearable design and want the owner to feel stylish, individual and, most of all, warm and cosy inside and out!’
This limited-edition jumper is available from Machine A in Soho, London, and via phone orders (020 7734 4334) for £150. Made to fit both men and women ‘The Kopparberg’ comes in four sizes – small, medium, large and extra large.
