About

Extremely rare Malcolm McLaren and Vivienne Westwood mohair SEDITIONARIES sweater, circa 1976.

This multi-coloured mohair sweater was made for Malcolm McLaren and Vivienne Westwood's SEDITIONARIES punk store in Kings Road, Chelsea. It was the heyday of the punk movement and this type of garment set the punk fashion for torn and unravelling sweaters. Westwood explained: ‘I started making mohair jumpers for the girls - you couldn't even buy mohair then. I loved the beatnik idea of wearing a man's sweater with tights.’ Real mohair is made from the fine hair of the angora goat. Imitation mohair can be made from a blend of wools.
