Todd Snyder x The Met Van Gogh Self-Portrait Sweater

Todd Snyder + The Met

Size

Knit from merino—a favorite for its soft, durable warmth and natural temperature-regulating abilities—in a chunky, three-gauge stitch, this crewneck sweater is brushed for a dense, textured finish. It features an adaptation of Vincent van Gogh’s (Dutch, 1853–1890)Self-Portrait with a Straw Hat(1887) in exceptional detail, digitally printed across the entire garment. This particular piece in The Met collection was produced while Van Gogh was in Paris; short of funds but determined to hone his skills, he became his own sitter: "I purposely bought a good enough mirror to work from myself, for want of a model." Todd has reimagined this iconic artwork by drawing attention to the background, expanding the warm, nuanced brushstrokes to occupy most of the space on the sweater.

As part of its mission tocollect, study, conserve, and present significant works of art across time and cultures in order to connect all people to creativity, knowledge, ideas, and one another, The Metropolitan Museum of Art invited Toddto design a wearable, art-inspired collection. “The colors and brushstrokes of Van Gogh, Degas, and Manet feel incredibly modern, incredibly relevant,” says Todd of the pieces he chose to adapt for this unique collaboration.
