1980s | Cropped Knitted Yellow Top | United Colors of Benetton


Want to add a pop of colour to your outfits?

What a special design--I have never seen anything like this before! This heavy knit top features an oversized high collar and a cropped length, making it perfect for pairing with high waisted bottoms.

From the front, the sweater has a simple shape, but the back features a triangular-shape opening, making this a fun and one of a kind vibrant top to add to your collection.

About United Colors of Benetton:

In 1965, Benetton was founded as a family business by four siblings, followed only four years later by the first store in Paris. 

The company became known above all for its provocative advertising campaigns with the star photographer Oliviero Toscani. With penetrating themes such as drugs, war, racism, poverty and AIDS, Benetton tries not only to attract attention and provoke, but also to introduce social themes such as contrast and globalization into fashion.

It was precisely through one of these campaigns, which bore the motto “All the colors of the world”, that the label found its name “United Colors”.
