In Pavielle Garcia’s promotional photos for Donald Glover’s new album 03.15.20, the musician makes pancakes for his children and wife while wearing a relaxed green cardigan and gold Tiffany necklaces. While the oversized cashmere sweater, worn by Glover without a shirt, isn’t as immediately arresting as his jewelry, it’s actually one of the best knits available.
Made by Connolly, a British brand founded in 1878, the V-neck Art Cardi is made in Scotland from high-grade cashmere and features two patch pockets and five horn buttons. Designed with a slouchy fit, the sweater only comes in two sizes — S/M and L/XL — and retails for $802.
But, Connolly didn’t always specialize in knits. It started as a saddle and shoe business before supplying leather to automotive giants like Bentley, Aston Martin, Jaguar, Ferrari and Rolls Royce. In 2016, the brand opened a boutique in London offering a luxurious collection of tailored garments, knitwear and leather goods.
The Art cardigan is the epitome of laid-back luxury, and it’s a staple of Glover’s wardrobe. So if you want an outer layer that’s soft and slouchy, perfect for everyday wear, borrow some of Childish Gambino’s style and pick this up this sweater today. For a limited time, you can score it for 15 percent off at MatchesFashion with the code SPRING15.
