The Somerset: Not Your Standard Sweatshirt
There are deconstructed sweatshirts and tailored ones. Graphic and basic. Oversized and fitted. So many kinds of sweatshirts. But until now, there were none sporting the Dudley Stephens pineapple. We set out to give our first design in the category plenty of considered details that add up to an effortless vibe.
Here, the DS team takes you behind the design.
The silhouette: We wanted to design a slouchy sweatshirt that would feel like the most familiar piece in your closet—the kind of sweatshirt you’ve had for years and love even more every time you wear it.
The details: We gave the Somerset a flattering crewneck design with a drop shoulder. And we added double stitching detail around its neckline and sleeves for a subtle twist. Of course our signature pineapple embroidery completes the design.
Styling the piece: The Somerset would work over workout clothes or paired with jean shorts for the beach. Or drape it over your shoulders as an extra layer for a night outside in the summer.
