There are some clothes that don´t go out of style. We can see them in different formats, with exaggerated details or with simple lines but they appear in each season. They appear and disappear. They reinvent themselves and return.
One of them is the turtleneck (turtleneck, for Americans) collar turned for Frenchs and polo neck for the British. For us, simply turtleneck. Its use began at the end of century XIX by the university athletes, soon followed the military and sailors who used it thinking exclusively in cold weather. We have also seen this garment on the big screen, in men and women intellectuals, of the cinema and of the fashion.
Particularly I always liked to wear this garment and discovered that with short hair I was more favored. And as someone once said to me, “Highlight your virtues and hide your faults.”
Throughout history we have seen wearing the turtleneck. In the 40s women like Marlene Dietrich and Greta Garbo wore it with trousers. We can not fail to mention the iconic image of Audrey Hepbrun in the film “Funny Face” (1957), an image that we have seen replicated in countless times. Diane Keaton, an actress with a style with such personality, has made a manual of style of this garment. She even dedicated an entire chapter in her biography to describe the goodness of the turtleneck.
The designers bring this garment over and over again in different formats. Here, a review of designers such as Balenciaga, Louis Vuitton, Calvin Klein, Zadig & Voltaire, Max Mara, J. W. Anderson, Maison Margiela, Alexander McQueen and Hermès in the autumn-winter 2017 collection. Enjoy!
