Bowie Rainbow Bolt Jumper

Over 50s style blog Is This Mutton? on the joys of the Bowie stripe cashmere jumper
Who buys a jumper (sweater) in May? you may ask.  Well, I did. When I saw Orwell + Austen advertising pre-orders for their new black Bowie rainbow bolt jumper, I knew I had to be quick because these sell out very quickly.

I have another version in pink which I bought a couple of years ago - you've seen me in it lots of times here and here.  These jumpers aren't cheap but boy are they worth it - the cashmere is extremely high quality;  doesn't pill or lose its shape or colour, and the pink jumper always attracted positive comments.  And as a lifelong Bowie fan since I was 12, it's a no-brainer.

The jumper has so many lovely colours in the rainbow that it would go with many different bottoms. Here I've paired it with a silver pleated skirt and silver backless loafers from Vionic (gifted). The silver necklace is by Science Jewelry and represents an atom.

I wasn't even going to wear it until autumn but I couldn't resist showing you. And besides, our weather is topsy turvy at the moment:  warm one minute, cool the next.  A jumper isn't out of place yet.

  1. How cool, a Bowie sweater! I am a big fan too, so I can see the interest! Love the colors and the style is very retro and cool. It sounds very well made and I love cashmere. It is in te high 90s here , so no sweaters for me! LOoks wonderful with the silver.
