Winter isn’t quite over yet, and what better way to stay cosy in the cooler months than with a funky new sweater?

The new sweater collection from WAH-WAH features some of your favourite musicians and visual artists, ranging from Sonic Youth to Filthy Ratbag. 

Since launching WAH-WAH in 2015, designer Kaylene Milner has gained cult status for her subversive graphic sweaters which are devoted to iconic music and incredible visual art.

Milner’s woolly creations have featured everything from the art of Reg Mombassa to King Gizzard and the Lizard Wizard, and are worn by many other artists all over the world. The new range includes Raymond Pettibon’s iconic artwork for Sonic Youth’s 1990 album Goo, a tribute to art-punk group DEVO, as well as artwork by contemporary illustrators Laura Callaghan and Filthy Ratbag.

While the sweater designs are nothing short of mesmerising, nothing makes fashion cooler than environmental consciousness. The new WAH-WAH range is fully biodegradable, made from 100% superfine merino wool with cotton labels. Purchase a jumper, and it will be shipped to you in an environmentally friendly, biodegradable, non-toxic soluble garment bag and compostable mailer.
