Winter is just by the corner and it’s getting colder and colder! We hate when it’s freezing outside but low temperature is a good reason to wear a cozy vintage jumper isn’t it? Here at Harper & Lewis Vintage we have a great selection of knitwear – from beautiful Christmas jumpers, through 80’s beauties in loud colours – to latest must-haves in your wardrobes – badboys from cold Scandinavia. Yes! Icelandic and Norwegian jumpers have joined our website. Let us quickly present what we’ve got for you to hunt through.
Thinking of 80s knitwear we’re all thinking of Cosby style jumpers aren’t we? Loud colours and crazy patterns – that’s what’s it all about. The multi-coloured jumpers were worn by Bill Cosby in The Cosby Show in the 80s. The Cosby 80s sweater is a must-have piece of garment nowadays and here at Harper & Lewis Vintage we have a great selection of 80s beauties for him and her. Get your 80s sweater now and add an extravagant piece to your vintage outfit. Ladies – go for boxy shoulders to get back to Madonna’s times (if you don’t really want to look like Bill Cosby;) ). 80s sweaters look cool being worn oversized!
NORWEGIAN & ICELANDIC JUMPERS

Here at Harper and Lewis Vintage we’ve got a great selection of Norwegian and Icelandic wool jumpers for you to hunt through. Your wardrobe without the Scandinavian tenants in not a wardrobe this season!
Scandinavian knitwear is all about traditional patterns.
These don’t really need an introduction – NO HOLDS BARRED!
The Christmas season would never be complete without that all-important Christmas jumper. It nowadays is one of the most important must – have items just like a Christmas Tree!

Authentic patterns can be found in our wide range of Festive Christmas Jumpers, while chunky cable knit jumpers add some heritage edge. Rounded off by a selection of sweaters inspired by the most sought after brands, our Christmas Sweaters will keep your body the right side of cool. And remember, everyone is going to be jealous of your cozy beauty! Here at Harper & Lewis Vintage you can chose between a wide range of colours, sizes and most importantly – patterns.

25th edition of Clothes Show Lives is just around the corner and Harper & Lewis Vintage is going to be there again! Vision Village, heart of the show – that’s where you’re gonna find us.
It all started in 1989 in London on the back of then famous television show which was designed to get the general public into high fashion. Since 1990 the event has been held every December at Birmingham’s NEC. This year we are all going to celebrate its 25th birthday.
The Clothes Show turned out to be very influential in the fashion’s world. Designer Christopher Kane said “The Clothes Show made it feel more relevant, and also more accessible to the working class because of all the high street stuff. It definitely made me want to go study fashion at Central St Martins.”
Young new talents have frequently been hunted at the show by established model agencies – supermodels Naomi Campbell, Jodie Karen and Caprice have all walked the Fashion Theatre Catwalk. Caprice said “I’ve never experienced anything like it – Taking to the stage in front of 6,000 screaming people. It was amazing!”
The countdown to the UK’s largest and most talked about fashion and beauty event of the year is on and Harper & Lewis Vintage is getting ready to join the event this year again. You will be able to find our massive stand which is being designed and built at the moment. We are so excited!
Friday 6th December – 9am-6pm
Saturday 7th December – 9am-6.30pm
Sunday 8th December – 9am-6.30pm
Monday 9th December – 9am-6pm
Tuesday 10th December – 9am-6pm
How to get there:
Travelling to The NEC is easiest by public transport, but sometimes with all those shopping bags and friends to drop off, its easier to drive! The NEC is well sign-posted from the M6 (J4), the M42 (J6), the A45, A446 & M1. There is ample car parking (£10 per day for standard and disabled, £20 per day for NEC Express Parking). Shuttle buses operate between the car parks and the show. If you’re using a sat nav the postcode is B40 1NT.
