Sunspel's New Christmas Sweaters Are an Ode to Environmental Awareness

Proceeds from the sale will be donated to Stump Up For Trees, an environmental preservation charity.

Sunspel has tapped British visual artist David Shrigley OBE to rework its traditional Christmas sweaters for the upcoming holidays. Known for his caustic illustrations of mundane or bizarre moments that occur on a day-to-day basis, the knits feature outlines of a penguin, fox and polar bear, along with messages that address the world’s current environmental climate. Shrigley commented on his latest collaboration with the label in a press release and said:

“I am very proud to collaborate with Sunspel, an iconic brand that I have admired for many years. The initial proposal was to make a Christmas sweater but with the pieces that we have created for this collaboration, I thought it was important to make something that could be worn throughout the winter. The sweaters are very good quality and hopefully can be worn for years to come. I wanted to put across a message of environmental responsibility and sustainability which I know are causes that are also important to Sunspel.”

Standout styles include the three lambswool jacquard jumpers printed with the phrases: “YES TO ICEBERGS NO TO ZOOS,” “PROTECT THE COLD PLACES AND THE OTHER PLACES” and “SAVE THE ICE WE NEED THE ICE.” Other items have been added to the line such as the tees, boxer shorts and socks. For every piece sold, Sunspel will donate 10 percent of the proceeds to an environmental preservation charity called Stump Up For Trees. Take a closer look at the offerings in the gallery above.

David Shrigley OBE x Sunspel’s Winter 2020 collection ranges from £20 to £250 GBP (approximately $26 to $330 USD) and is now available exclusively at Sunspel’s website and Sunspel’s SoHo store in New York.
