The Christmas Jumper

Win our take on the festive sweater, in support of Save The Children's Christmas Jumper Day.
2nd December 2013

Save The Children Christmas Jumper by Matthew WilliamsonBehold the new Christmas jumper – all in the name of a very good cause. With no Rudolf in sight, it’s a luxurious chunky knit with a hint of celebratory sparkle. Save the Children invited 14 British designers to customise a festive sweater for their Christmas Jumper Day campaign, ready to then be auctioned in aid of the charity.

With our iconic peacock emblem as starting point, the studio fashioned the eye of the feather into a bauble design. The rainbow of yarns would make even the emperor of the peacocks envious, then up close, tiny beads catch the light. We imagine it fireside over the holidays, or offset against a high octane dress.

You could win this unique piece for pennies. The winner of the Big Wooly Auction will be the one with the lowest unique bid – that’s the lowest bid in pence that no one else makes. Just get guessing and text MATTHEW and your bid amount to 78484.

Remember, a peacock is for life, a turkey’s just for Christmas.The End
