Cardigans and knitwear in classic retro and vintage style

A feminine cardigan or knit blouse is perfect for changing an outfit in an instant while being an indispensable item of clothing here in our Nordic climate, with whimsical summers and cold winters and off-seasons.

Mondo Kaos has therefore specialized in a very good selection of feminine knitwear and cardigans in retro and vintage style, inspired by the fashion from 1940s og 1950s.

We have chosen to focus on a few brands in relation to the sweaters and cardigans we carry, in return these brands are of the highest quality and the inspiration is always taken from vintage patterns, old pictures and vintage knitting patterns.

We have many different types of knitwear in Mondo Kaos, with what they all have in common is that they are feminine and suitable for all our high-waisted vintages skirts, dress og pants and of course highlights the waist by their short cuts.

The quality is always top notch, whether it is the finest wool, which is made not to fluff or scratch, or soft comfortable cotton. Most of our vintage cardigans and sweaters are made in the EU by small manufacturers in close collaboration with the brands in question. That way, you are sure to get a cardigan, sweater or sweater of the highest quality that keeps both shape and style year after year, just like a real vintage cardigan. In addition, we also have our vintage knitwear in Plus size.

We carry many different types of vintage knitwear so there is something for everyone. However, we always have most of the warm knit in the off-seasons and in the winter, as we are a small shop with limited storage space.

We carry knitwear from the brands Emmy Design, Palava and The House of Foxy

Cardigans from Emmy Design

Emmy Design is a Swedish brand from 2010 that focuses on knitwear in a vintage style, especially with inspiration from the 1940s. IN Mondo Kaos there are three things we know work for everyone and one of them is Emmy Designs cardigans.

Here Mondo Kaos we have been running Emmy Design since 2011.

Most of Emmy's cardigans are knitted in 100% merino wool - The advantage of wool is that it is warm and breathable, and it stays fresh for a long time, which means you can cut down on the frequency of washing. Wool may seem itchy to some, but Emmy has solved this problem by mercerizing the wool. This process makes the wool very soft and also gives the surface a light shine.

The bestseller The Ice Skater cardigan - signature in 100% wool

The Ice Skater cardigan has slightly full shoulders, V-shaped neckline and horizontal cable knit which ends at the waist. The short shape makes the cardigan look simple and elegant, and it is one of our most popular styles among all the clothes in the store, because it fits everything perfectly.

Peggy Sue cardigan from Emmy Design

Peggy Sue is a regular part of the spring - summer collection from Emmy Design as it is in a lighter knit in 100% merino wool with a hole pattern. It is the perfect cardigan to wear on the cool summer evenings, or it can be used instead of in a jacket. Of course, it still has the beautiful retro fit, which is perfect for summer dresses or a swing skirt, for example.

Susie Q cardigan

The Susie Q. cardigan is for those who, despite Emmy's soft wool, just want a vintage quality cotton cardigan. It is part of the spring / summer collection. Of course, like Emmy's other cardigans, Susie Q also has the signature silhouette in waist length, and a slight push at the shoulders, it also has a beautiful hole pattern. The cardigan is in a wonderful hypoallergenic cotton blend consisting of 50% cotton and 50% modal.

Is a light and versatile 100% wool cardigan, it is great all year round, in the summer to wear on cool evenings and as a blouse for a pair of jeans in the winter.

Summer time blues

The cardigan is short-sleeved and has cute details such as a contrasting bow pattern at the edge and the fine graphic knit pattern. Summertime Blues also stand out by having less pouf in their sleeves than Emmy's other cardigans. It is made of thick 100% merino wool and beautiful for both dresses and wide sailor trousers.

Cardigans from Palava

We also carry knitwear and cardigans Palava.

They are characterized by their beautiful vintage novelty patterns, and we rarely have them for long periods of time, as they are a huge hit with our customers. In addition, all their sweaters and cardigans are made in certified eco-cotton in Turkey, where they are also manufactured.
Palavas cardigans are like the other short-waisted ones, but a little longer than both Emmy and House of Foxy, so good for you who have a slightly longer torso, or just prefer this shape. Palavas cardigans are always colorful, and always in the most beautiful high-quality cotton.

Novelty cardigan from Palava

Palavas novelty cardigan always has embroidery of beautiful animals and figures, and they always capture something very special about the creature they portray. In addition, the beautiful color combination shows how much Palava love their design.

Geometrically patterned cardigans and knitwear

We also lead Palavas knitted blouses and cardigans with the beautiful geometric figures, such as zig-zag and harlequin check. They are always a colorful feature and come in both long- and short-sleeved blouses. These blouses are perfect for all seasons and, as with the novelty blouses, always worth keeping an eye on.
