Distressed Luxury Knitwear - Maison Margiela's Distressed Wool Sweater Vest is Extravagant (TrendHunter.com)

One might argue that Maison Margiela is taking distressed luxury knitwear too far with this slick sweater vest that has been deemed to "(literally) hang on by a thread." Available through the
Highsnobiety shop, the Maison Margiela Distressed Wool Sweater Vest Multi retails for a whopping $1,795.00 CAD.

The materials for the distressed luxury knitwear piece are, of course, high-end. The construction features a wool-alpaca blend fabric that is soft to the touch, as well as "argyle intarsia knit with contrasting stitches" for the detailing. What will capture the attention of consumers is the level of deconstruction that Maison Margiela employed for this garment. The label effectively pushed the boundaries of distressed luxury knitwear with "Décortiqué design and loose threads."

In addition to the Distressed Wool Vest, Maison Margiela also boasts a sweater version.
