Fantastic Non-Fair Isles

The use of "Fair Isle" to describe every geometric motif sweater of a particular style is just plain wrong. The origins of true Fair Isle sweaters come from one of the Shetland Islands off the coast of Scotland known as-you guessed it-Fair Isle. Everything else is just a nice jacquard.

This Sacai knit outfit shot by Andreas Ortner for L'Officiel Switzerland is just stunning. It has fringe so of course I love it! And while its more Native American influenced rather than Fair Isle-esque I'm using a a little artistic license to include it.
