If you've been searching for relaxed wool knits that have zero itch, the latest Woolmark Company collaboration with silver fox Nick Wooster may have just put an end to your epic apparel hunt.
The fashion influencer has collaborated with the Swedish brand The White Briefs to produce a 100 percent merino wool capsule collection in partnership with Woolmark. The collection was unveiled on January 13 at the Pitti Uomo, in Florence.
Wooster presented knitted coats, gym shorts, sleek briefs, and breezy robes on a dark, sophisticated palette of grey, black, and deep navy, with a touch of olive green here and there. The garments are made from Australian merino wool, for a natural aesthetic that blurs the line between loungewear and outerwear.

"I discovered The White Briefs when I was working on a special project curating the best brands from around the world," Wooster said. "I fell in love with [The White Briefs creative director] Peter Simonsson's attention to detail, styling and quality. He has the best eye for packaging and great taste in color and fabric...I love the idea of Merino wool undergarments. Since this is not an expected fabric and because it's important to me to push the industry forward, I could think of no better partner to work with on this project."
The collection is casual luxury attire at its finest, and the next-to-skin softness and breathability of merino wool makes it a treasured asset to cover up your own... assets.
But be patient: Nick Wooster's collection for the White Briefs won't be available for purchase until August 2015.
