Vintage Italian Knitwear
Some of the best vintage knitwear came from Italy in the 1960s and 1970s, thanks to the arrival of Italy’s ready-to-wear industry. Italian fashion looked much different than Parisian haute couture at the time – it was cleaner, with impeccable construction and bold colors.
The density of vintage knitwear lends itself well to the cooler months. Below we have assembled a colorful variety of vintage knitwear (not all from Italy, but most), as seen on eBay and etsy this week. Click on each image to see the full listing.
