Newly obsessed with Preloved sweaters for winter

While at a Roots spring preview this morning, I started looking through the racks of current merchandise and found these gems: multi-coloured patchwork Preloved sweaters. Preloved is a brand created by Julia Grieve in collaboration with Peter Friesen that creates clothing from vintage fabrics, including items such as the Doreen cardigan, pictured below:

The duo currently has a shop on Queen Street West in Toronto, as well as locations in Montreal and Sydney, Australia, and they have produced variations on their sweaters for a variety of other retailers including Roots.

Check out some of the styling from their blog, and be sure to visit the racks at Roots or shop virtually at preloved.ca.
