Channel Marilyn Monroe in this cozy Gerard Darel sweater

September 21, 2010 | 10:00 am


Good news for Marilyn Monroe fans (or anyone who likes a classic cable knit sweater). French designer Gerard Darel is making this sumptuous-looking sweater for fall, modeled after the one Monroe wore in the 1960 film “Let’s Make Love.”

Darel actually acquired Monroe’s sweater at auction back in 1999 and is just now releasing a replica. Regardless if you care about the Monroe connection or feel like you need an hourglass figure to fill it out, the crew-neck classic makes for a toasty fall piece with a nod to Hollywood history.

The sweater is $195 and will be available starting the last week of September. See for store info.
