There’s no doubting the existence of an intersection between fashion and art. Each inspires the other, drawing ideas, emotions and feelings. With great art, you know it when you see it. With great fashion, it’s much the same. But with great fashion, you also feel it when you wear it.
October is National Arts and Humanities Month. Here at St. Croix, expression through art is near and dear to our hearts. That’s why we continue to pay tribute to world-renowned artists and their masterpieces by reinterpreting their works into wearable art that we call our unique Art Sweaters. Also known as artwear or art to wear, these inspired designs breathe life into our handcrafted knitwear. Each is created to evoke a new perspective on men’s luxury fashions. You’ll find our Art Sweaters are not only stylish and whimsical but exude personality.
Just as painters and sculptors work to become masters of their mediums, we continue our pursuit by using fine fabrics while simultaneously celebrating the art that inspires us. Each season, our designers reimagine an artistic creation as handcrafted knitwear for you. Thread by thread, the design transforms into a masterpiece. The end result is fabulous wearable art that meets the superior standards St. Croix has long been known for.
Our Art Sweaters are produced in very limited quantities each season, which makes them highly sought after and highly valued by collectors and art fans alike. Once the season passes, if any remain, they transition into our Legacy Collection, never to be reproduced again. It’s not only the limited quantity of each handcrafted sweater that makes them so special, it’s the connection you have to the art and the artist.
Owning a St. Croix Collections Art Sweater tells the world you have great taste and appreciate the finer things in life. Much like strolling through the MoMA, enjoying our handcrafted sweaters up close will delight your senses and owning one is a rare treat.
In the past, we’ve drawn inspiration from Dali, Kandinsky and Monet to name a few. There are still a few sweaters available from seasons past, pieces inspired by Van Gogh, Mondrian and Hundertwasser, but once these pieces of luxury menswear are gone, they’re gone forever. As for the Art Sweaters we’re creating in the future, stay tuned. We’re pretty sure you’ll be just as excited as we are to present them to you.
Join us in celebrating National Arts and Humanities month. We hope you enjoy our Art Sweaters enough to add one to your collection. It’s a tradition we’re proud to continue, season after season. When it’s handcrafted menswear from St. Croix, it’s clothing that’s made for you.
