From punk knitwear to nu-metal nostalgia: The best in alternative style this month

That’s right, Blondie knitwear – so you can keep warm while hanging on the telephone. British knitwear and ready-to-wear label, HADES, renowned for their conceptual collections that celebrate countercultural bands and radical ideas, have joined forces with the legendary New York punks for this awesome new collaboration.
Let’s face it, Debbie Harry is still one of the most stylish women in rock, so taking a page out of her book can never be a bad idea.

The Atomic collection has been created with Debbie herself and Blondie, including a knitted Call Me bag – a first for HADES – as well as a deep V-neck knit, inspired by one worn by the iconic frontwoman in the late ’70s. The new range also includes a Blondie striped crew cut jumper (inspired by the Parallel Lines album cover), a fitted vest, a Call Me jumper showcasing the artwork from the original 7”, and statement scarves for Heart Of Glass and Hanging On The Telephone.

Speaking about the collab, Blondie said, “Working with an independent business to create these tributes has been a journey. The Blondie aesthetic has always had a punk, DIY feel and we know our fans go crazy for this collection.”

One way or another you’ll catch me dreaming of HADES’ handcrafted garments, made in Scotland from 100 per cent super-warm, lambswool. With good quality wool you can avoid having to wear countless layers and looking like the Michelin Man this winter. Unless that’s the look you are going for – if so, no judgements!

Top tip: if you are single, try wearing the Call Me jumper to a gig, and see how many people ask for your number. (Finding true love not guarantee with each purchase.)

Call Me jumpers and Heart Of Glass scarves are available now and the rest of the collection will be on sale in February. So keep your eyes peeled!
