Sweater Genius #4: Betsey Johnson

Betsey Johnson’s work for Alley Cat in the 70s exemplified the era’s sweater renaissance. With an unmatchable, joyous colour sense, she placed knitwear on a nostalgic pedestal - reworking wartime jacquard techniques with a younger, hipper aesthetic. In her hands, virtually any subject material could provide unexpected, fresh inspiration for knitted patterns and stripes that no one had ever experienced before. They are just as spirited and exciting today.
