Isaac Mizrahi Live! Patchwork Zip Front Cardigan
Classy, fun, well made sweater
I can't believe this is on clearance because it is one of the nicest sweaters that Issac ever designed. The sweater is substantial without being too much. It goes with so many colors in my wardrobe.It fits true to size. I bought the one with black, brown and tan and just love it. If you can land this one, go for it!
...and updated by the front zipper which is gold tone on the red one. Classic, boxy fit which can be belted with a matching gold tone belt to pull in the waist. Slightly small in the chest, IMO. Can be paired with shades of red/browns, to reds and red/oranges. I'll probably pair it with the Linea WK pencil skirt in Aubergine and the matching tight. Hopefully another piece will come along to coordinate with the sweater, such as a pencil skirt in one of the patterns of the sweater, but it will look lovely with a pair of ivory pants or skirt. Add multiple pearls, and gold necklaces, viola, Chanel.
Love the style, fit and color, however, I found the sweater to be very scratchy. Wanted to wear as a shirt, but would have to wear long sleeves under the sweater so it would be comfortable. Will return and see if I can find another one that is made of a different fiber. So sad, really loved the look of the sweater.
I just received it in the black combo, and I like it a lot. It's a unique take on animal, and a girl can't have too much animal in her wardrobe. I'll wear it as a jacket over dresses, and with skirts and pants as a top. It makes a nice addition to my wardrobe. I really like that it has a zipper.
First and maybe the last
This was my first Isaac purchase. I loved it when I received it and loved wearing it. But, after two wearings and one washing, the underarm areas were pilling and had pulls. I followed the hand washing instructions, so it wasn't the machine that did this. Way to much to spend on a sweater that now looks like it's a year old. Back it goes.
1st but not the last
Luv the quality, the fit, the colors (Brn/blk), and especially Isaac. My 1st purchase of his and won't be the last. True to my size. Most lines at QVC are not true to my size. I'm a medium and can trust ordering it. Thank Isaac.
Recently purched the Animal patchwork zip front cardigan being a big fan of the patchwork knew I would love it before it even came. And I was right,,, first and formost it was a perfect fit. good workmanship and quality of the material. Keeps it shaps and looks good with jeans or a skirt.
This was my first clothing piece of Isaac's. I have several of his watchs. When I saw this on air, I had to have it. Just came today and I am thrilled with it. Perfect fit, well made, fabric is the perfect weight. Home run Isaac!! BTW love watching you and Shawn!
I ordered this sweater in the br/bl combo and it is lovely. The fabric is so soft! I love the zipper pull. It is light weight and I don't like heavy sweaters so it is perfect for me. Great job, Mr. Mizrahi (I love you on Project Runway)
Just got this sweater in the black and brown and love it. Fits great, nicely made and the colors really pop. I will probably go back and get the blue.
FANTABULOUS - BUT
I received the blk/bro and red sweater today. The blk/bro is awesome, it pops. The red sweater is drab, I should have gotten the navy. The BUT is for the facing inside the zipper, it should have been sewn down, it keeps coming out and showing on the outside as I was trying the sweater on. I will fix the facing on the blk/bro sweater, may return the red one. First Isaac I will keep!
Ordered this in brown... Couldn't decide between Small and Medium (I'm 5'2" & 150 lbs.), so I went with the larger size and it fits perfectly. Hides my mid-section, too. Very slimming. This is my first Isaac purchase and I have to say this is a beautiful sweater - colors are rich, it's soft & comfy, workmanship and quality are fabulous. Weight is perfect. Says to hand wash, which means I will dry clean. If you're on the fence - order this sweater! I'm sometimes afraid to order clothing online/TV/catalogs (fit, quality, etc.), but have complete faith in ordering from Isaac from now on. Plus, I just love Isaac:) Miss his TV show:(
