Sold exclusively on the brand’s e-commerce site, the range includes a sweater, a scarf, a beanie and mittens connected together with a cord — “a few of Patou’s favorite things,” according to the rhyming ditty that rhapsodized about warm moments in snowy days.
But the most warming touch of these cold-weather items — available in teal blue, chestnut brown and ivory — is less about their 100 percent virgin wool content than the hands that made them.
The French label worked with Stitch 22, a social enterprise based in Bosnia and Herzegovina, which empowers women by providing them with a livelihood thanks to traditional skills such as knitting.
Prices for the range are 190 euros for the beanie and gloves, 490 euros for the scarf made to look like a pair of sleeves looped around the neck, and 690 euros for the turtleneck sweater emblazoned with “Patou Neige” across the chest.
