As the evenings get darker and colder, winter accessories are a must have and this year there’s a new novelty knitwear contender to give Christmas jumpers a run for their money, PLAYMOBIL, the iconic toy company have created their first ever fashion product! The iconic PLAYMOBIL hairstyle is cemented in modern popular culture and recognised the world over, with many fans getting haircuts in this style, not to mention its influence on catwalk trends. With this in mind and the need to stay cosy and warm this winter, PLAYMOBIL have collaborated with up and coming knitwear designer, Electronic Sheep to pay homage to their famous haircut by creating a wooly hat PLAYMOHAIR for adults and kids.
These block-coloured styles are crafted from Italian yarn that also features in Electronic Sheep’s winter collections. A simple and understated aesthetic, these quirky wooly hats showcase a premium stylistic approach from PLAYMOBIL which is easy to wear. An extension of Electronic Sheep’s current AW14 collection, this exceptional piece easily fuses into the rest of the range, complimenting the playful patterns, illustrative knitted accessories and hints of nostalgia throughout all styles.
Known for their knitted scarves and their tapestry-esque designs, Electronic Sheep has carved a unique identity with its distinctive designs. Internationally-recognised and a label coined as a ‘one to watch’ in the knitwear world, Electronic Sheep were the perfect collaborator to create this masterpiece! The brainchild of designer-duo, Brenda Aherne and Helen Delany, this East London-based label, with roots in Dublin, brings an exciting futuristic feel with its exceptional patterns, as well as trend-setting aesthetic, to PLAYMOBIL.
