A philanthropic connection makes the season's ultimate sweater even sweeter.
Hand-knit popcornstitch turtleneck sweater, 525 America ($198).
To celebrate its 30th anniversary, 525 America collaborated with Hamptons magazine on a sweater that celebrates some of the East End’s most alluring attributes—a laid-back sense of style and a desire to give back. “The [sweaters] are the epitome of what we started 30 years ago and [represent] what we are today,” says Bobby Bock, a Long Island native who cofounded the womenswear brand with his wife, Marianne.
Twenty percent of the proceeds from sales of the hand-knit fisherman-style turtlenecks will benefit The Max Cure Foundation, a New York-based philanthropy that funds research for pediatric cancers.
