Sweater Genius #2: Perry Ellis

Perry Ellis was in a class by himself. He championed both the classic and the iconoclastic, taking the tried-and-true Anglo-American aesthetic and turning it upside down - tweaking proportions, exploding textures, mixing patterns, clashing colours and juxtaposing themes. America had never seen knits like this before. His bold, handmade sweaters defined the era - and their emotional appeal continues today.
