Staying Warm this Fall with Thor!


THOR




Are you ready to see Thor: Ragnarok?





We are going this weekend.  My husband and son are campaigning to go tonight but it's a school night!
Do you know what would make the movie experience even better?  If the guys had their own Thor inspired sweaters to wear.   


Marvel x Josh Bennett

This new luxury fashion collection from  designer Josh Bennett is on point!
The sweaters are inspired from Nordic influences and feature luxury fibers (100% Italian cashmere and yarns from New Zealand). The limited edition sweater collection is available through the holiday season.


ODIN

The collection includes four different styles. A chunky cardigan, v-neck tennis sweater, fisherman hoodie, and fair isle zip up cover all fashion preferences. Each style is limited to three pieces per size and is numbered and dated for authenticity. All this luxury comes at a steep price.  The collection ranges from $1095 – $1495 per item.  While the price range may be out of reach for most, it is still fun to admire the finery.

Which is your favorite look?  LOKI is the favorite in our house.  We may be on the look out for similar styles to try these looks out at home.




The Josh Bennett x Marvel collection ranges from $1095 – $1495 USD and is available to shop online at www.joshbennettnyc.com beginning November 10th  


 About Josh Bennett

Thor has been a character in Nordic mythology long before Marvel captured the Asgardian prince in his debut comic in 1950. The film reference was a fantastic help to tell the story and set the mood, but I knew I did not want these sweaters to be literal depictions of the characters.  I decided to combine aspects of the original Norse stories with the rich Marvel storytelling, making each sweater desirable to super fans of both genres.  Each design has unique details that reference both authentic Norse mythology and Marvel plot points,” states Bennett.

Josh Bennett grew up in Pennsylvania where he learned to knit from his grandmother when he was 8 years old.  After a short time, he stopped, because boys don’t knit. Then he got interested in musical theater, because all boys sing and dance.  In 2000, Josh worked at the Goodspeed Opera House in East Haddam, CT where he picked up knitting again from the cast members in the show, and hasn’t stopped since.
After moving to New York City in 2001 and knitting constantly, Josh worked at a yarn shop on the Upper West Side that wrote custom patterns for their customers.  Noticing the lack of menswear patterns being designed and published, he took his pattern writing skills and was determined to change that. 
Since, Josh has collaborated with CFDA Award winner Michael Bastian on a hand knitted line, Michael Bastian by Josh Bennett sold at Bergdorf Goodman, Sak’s 5th Avenue and stores worldwide.  They have also worked together on projects for the Folk Couture: Fashion and Folk Art at the American Folk Art Museum, Le Cabinet de Curiosit├ęs of Thomas Erber, and a fashion helmet for the NFL/Bloomindale/CFDA Super Bowl XLVIII collaboration which was auctioned off for the NFL Foundation. 
He was the Men’s Sweater Designer at Tommy Hilfiger and has also worked with and designed for GANT by Michael Bastian, Perry Ellis, Alexander Wang, Rowan Magazine, Vogue Knitting, and other knitting publications.  He is the designer of his own exclusive capsule collection of men’s hand knitted sweaters at Bergdorf Goodman, Josh Bennett + Goodman’s.
Josh studied Menswear Design at the Fashion Institute of Technology (FIT).

  1. I like all of these sweaters but if I have to pick just one I would choose the Odin sweater.
