I am more than happy to celebrate the revival of furry friends cropping up as accessories! Almost as if paying homage to the late 90's appearance Sean the Sheep, knitwear designers are putting the fun back into the way we dress with lovable creatures we can wrap around our bodies. My personal faves are those designed by Donna Wilson who offers an animal-friendly, knitted alternative to using real taxidermy as cushions or a moth-eaten fox tails around your neck. I also love Yang Du's incredible knitwear pieces which I have illustrated here. It is time to bin the beige and welcome the Year of Eccentricity with open arms.
