Sweater Weather

Fall arrived seemingly overnight, strewing sidewalks with fallen leaves, bringing chilly evenings and bouts of cold rain. So, yeah! Let’s break out the sweaters! And at Momo, we’ve decided that it’s time to up our sweater game by introducing brilliant color into our soon-to-be winter drear.

Brand new to Momo is Maska from Sweden. Exquisite fibers and craftsmanship ensures that these pieces will be in your winter wardrobe for years to come. These more-stylish-than-trendy sweaters are made with wool from merino sheep in Australia ... which is then spun into yarn by a family supplier in Scotland ... which is then sent to Lithuania where it’s turned into gorgeous sweaters!

‘Anira’ tunic in vivid gold.
‘Helga’ in oxblood has front patch pockets, hooray!
‘Anto’ grandpa cardigan has pockets, too!

Maska’s ‘Cici’ sweater is spun in Italy from a blend of fine lambswool and cashmere, so it’s at once lightweight and toasty warm. And guess what? Momo also has pants just like these! via Cop-Copine.

Speaking of, next up, our favorite French brand: Cop-Copine. Leave it to these quirky designers to give us an easy and versatile way to wear the color of the season. Call it curry, saffron or moutarde, a dash will go a long way in spicing up your wardrobe.

‘Aubrac’ is the perfect boyfriend sweater and
this saturated mustard is the go-to color for fall. 

Cop-Copine ‘Dodoma’ will make you feel like you’re
hugged by a giant bunny – softer than a cloud!
And for us tried-and-true Northwesterners who need to refresh our classic Seattle black/grey (or as we like to say, light-black) and beige sweater selection, Momo has got you covered.

Backdrop is back! Purveyors of the perfectly practical (without conceding style), we have their ever-popular black zip-up hooded cardigan and a super-cozy oversized oatmeal-colored cardi. And yes, pockets, pockets, pockets!

But wait, there’s more. Straight from Copenhagen: Two Danes. Both ‘Yuna’ and ‘Yulia’ are a 50/50 blend of yak wool and merino, super soft to the touch. Snug as a bug in a rug! And you’re seeing right — more pockets.
Last but not least is our Margaret O’Leary cashmere travel wrap — impossible not to love (and a luxe holiday present for anyone you love)! A 77" x 28" rectangle of pure heaven and an absolute must-have for the plane, train, automobile or strolling. We have eight colors to choose from, ranging from a romantic rosewood to pine green and, of course, our staples of black, grey, navy or taupe.

There you have it, the sweater wrap up at Momo. And believe it or not, there’s more in store. So, drop by, say ‘hi,’ and get your warm fuzzies ... and maybe a sweater, too! :)

It’s the time of year the southwest winds bring rain to the Northwest. Our damp season demands versatile all-weather outerwear, and at Momo, we’ve found the perfect solutions, beginning with: Baro Drywear. Based in Vancouver, BC, their focus is technical jackets styled for the street — taped seams, breathable fabric, moisture-wicking lining and of course, waterproof.

Military-inspired “Brockton” features a fishtail back and adjustable hood.

In loden green or black, the Brockton offers room for layering
while maintaining trim profile.

The tailored “Dean” jacket has street smart styling
and the same waterproof technical construction. 

Many know Gramicci as a pioneering rock-climbing clothier. This season, the company collaborated with Japanese designers to produce Gramicci JP. The result? A good-looking work jacket where outdoor utility meets practical urban style ... at work, in the studio, or out-and-about.

Always classic: Saint James Nemo fisherman smock is a staple for mariners in cold climes from the coast of Brittany to the British Isles. Made of heavy canvas with an interior pocket, this pullover is Northwest ready, whether you’re on the water, in the woods or around town.
