A knight in shining hoody
By Ruth Greenall.
Could the emergence of the ‘Medieval Knight Hoody’ restore the reputation of our controversial hero? It could go either way depending on the lifestyle of the wearer but we think the hoody wearing hipsters could give this design a ‘gallant and bold’ edge. The Hoodywink team would love to try out the urban warrior look but suspect it may be a drawbridge too far for us.
We love Catherine Kim’s Iamknight creations, professionally crafted with all the features of our old friend; the pullover design, kangaroo pocket and elasticated waistband and cuffs. But these hoodies are sculpted into slender fit, armoured designs with retractable visors and the protection of shoulder and elbow pads. The Korean Theatrical Costume designer makes custom tailored, handmade designs in wool and the aspiring urban knight can find her on Etsy.
