cozy for cold times ahead

sandra backlund has some badass structural knits (check her site archives for some intense weaves that remind you of architecture studio), and yes ... why not wear them with a pair of sheer, sheer stockings?

alexander wang has my favorite men's - women's - boy's - girl's knits since he started his ny-based collection at the ripe age of 21 (last year!). see his bio section for the cutest designer baby pictures ever, and pointing to the roots of his aesthetic with this statement: "Growing up in the late 80's into the early 90's ... it was an issue of Harper's Bazaar when Liz Tilberis was editor-in-chief." hell yes! (i can't help but wonder -- is this me in a parallel universe? but then i realize, wow, a whole generation of us is making it right now ... )
