Inspired by legendary textile artist John Allen, British designer J.W. Anderson created three knit tops for his spring/summer 2015 collection. Like Allen’s work, Anderson’s tops are based on landscapes done in a sweeping, colorful style, beautifully abstracted into knit. On one top, a pink sky accompanies a gorgeous waterfall design; on another, white cliffs are set against yellow and green sloping hills. The manufacturing process used jaquard weaving, which Anderson’s website describes as a “complex knitting technique to create a unique depth of texture” with a variety of materials including wool, mohair, viscose, polyamide, and silk blend.

These sweaters aren’t cheap, running about $1,355 each. But if that’s out of your price range, Anderson is also selling a print of these designs on regular T-shirts, button-ups, and swim shorts for about $235 to $370.
