Gyles & George, the British knitwear company popularized by Elton John and Princess Diana in the 1980s, has released their newest collection, the Zodiac capsule collection. It marks the label’s first major new collection since the ‘90s, though they have had a slight resurgence thanks to a recent partnership with Rowing Blazers.

The Leo Sweater.

Gyles & George was founded by George Hostler, an artist and sculptor, and Gyles Brandreth, a former member of Parliament and the founder of Britain’s popular Teddy Bear Museum. Together, the pair have created several iconic sweaters, including their most famous "I am a luxury sweater."

The brand, known for their cheeky sense of humor, used their original knitting pattern books from the 80s to create the new sweaters, which are unisex. The collection, made up of the 100 percent cotton knitted sweaters that are handmade in Portugal, consists of unique designs for each of the 12 signs of the zodiac.

"As a Piscean, I should be creative, emotionally sensitive and emotionally aware," said Brandreth. "I hope our range of Zodiac jumpers shows I’m exactly that!"

The Gyles & George Zodiac Sweaters retail for $245. They are available now at gylesandgeorge.com, rowingblazers.com, and in select retailers.
