Manchester-based stalwart Oi Polloi has followed up last year’s Aran Jumper capsule with a new take on the knitwear classic. The collection builds on the first capsule’s key theme, with a focus on colorful stripes as a reference to classic sportswear designs.
In this release, the Aran Jumper arrives in three striped constructions, which mix the “Pure Aran” color with “Sage Green,” “Summer Storm” and “Harvest.” Additionally, Oi Polloi has also released three plain Aran colorways (“Pure Aran,” “Skiddaw Nepp” and “Navy”) that incorporate two front pockets to the classic construction.
Launching the capsule, Oi Polloi founder Steve Sanderson said:
“Last year was the first time we’d ever done knitwear. The idea was that we wanted to improve the shape and the block of the usually quite unruly Aran Jumper, to modernise it. So I guess, this time around, we wanted to improve the shape and block of our own version? We didn’t want to reproduce what we did last year, we want to try and make it better each time. I think we’ve nailed it, fit-wise.
We’ve introduced more stripes to keep that sportswear vibe, but throwing in more earthy hues, colours inspired by nature and that, as well as a nep with the flecks and stuff, the super classic colourway for an Aran sweater. Like I said before, this is about modernising the old-world charm of the Aran sweater, to create the kind of jumper that can be worn with sportswear, jogging bottoms, climbing pants, whatever floats your boat.”
The second Aran Jumper capsule by Oi Polloi is available from the Oi Polloi web store now.
