Holiday sweaters. For some people, they will always be the horrid, scratchy things they were forced to wear every Christmas morning, and were begging to be released from by the time the turkey was on the table.
For others, however, they're a designer fashion statement, and a chance to splash some serious cash on the kind of knitwear that wouldn't look out of place at an ugly sweater party.
The ones pictured here are by the likes of Stella McCartney, Markus Lupfer and Moschino, and we're hoping they're REALLY impressive up close, because as you read this, little old ladies around the world are looking at this post, clutching their knitting needles and hearing cash registers ringing in their ears. You might want to keep hold of that scratchy sweater you get this year, folks: you can tell everyone it's a Meadham Kirchhoff, and "bang on trend!"
What do you think? Is the humble holiday sweater something you'd pay in the range of $1,000 for? Is it something you'd wear AT ALL?
