Walter Van Beirendonck’s ‘Happy Knit’ – does it make you happy?

Happy_knitAre you feeling happy yet? More to the point, perhaps: are you feeling £1,089 (over $2000) worth of "happy"? You should be – that’s how much this chunky knitted sweater by Walter Van Beirendonck will cost you, and for that amount, we’d want it to make us feel very happy indeed…

On the plus side it looks like it’ll keep you warm, and will also allow you to look like you were drawn by a four year old. Which could be… fun. Would it convince you to spend over $2000, though, that’s the question?

    This is the sort of thing the Singing Corner used to wear when swinging their pants.

    Wow. $2000 could buy me a lot of things that would make me happy; this sweater is definitely NOT one of those things. In fact, just looking at it makes me unhappy!

    It does not make me happy to think of putting a giant thick contrast braid around my waist!! With even more oversized embelishment on the hips.
    Looks sort of like a weird cake. I can only think that Walter hates women, and has a food obsession.

    Walter needs to lay off the LSD for a while and see where that takes him.

    I’m a knitter. This sort of thing brings disrepute to the whole concept of knitting, and jumpers in general. It doesn’t make me happy. More scared.

    It makes ME happy!
    … oh, wait. No. I think I’m confusing ‘happy’ with ‘feeling of mortal peril’.

    Wow. It sort of looks like you would be wearing a hamburger floatie around your waist.
    Very scary.

    Well… I really see myself hugging that sweater. I guess there would be a lot to say about the woman wearing this.. Either she is very rich or as very rich “friends” among other things.. The hamburger floatie are 3 classic bandanna design from the 80s.. but for 2000 bucks, no way! Just learn to do it yourself if you really like it!

    If I wore this, I’m pretty sure I’d want to die.
    So no, it’s not a hppy sweater.

    OH. MY. LORD. The color alone makes it look like vomit, but then someone put it on a particularly moldy hamburger. Gross.

    It does look cozy. I think that if i got the chance to wear it, I probably would. It’s so ridiculous I’d just have to try it on.
