The Aran jumper is a classic Irish staple that has stood the test of time thanks to its simple style and its ability to keep you cosy no matter how cold the weather gets.

It’s a style often spotted on American tourists milling around O’Connell street as they soak up as much Irishness as possible, as well as the older generation who are more into investment pieces rather than high street styles.

The iconic jumper has just been chosen to feature in a fashion exhibition at the Museum of Modern Art in Manhattan, New York, where it will sit beside other famous fashion creations such as the Hermès Birkin bag and Yves Saint Laurent’s Le Smoking suit.

The Chosen Aran Jumper which will feature in the exhibition titled ‘Items: Is Fashion Modern?’ will travel from the Country Life National Museum of Ireland in Co Mayo to New York in the coming weeks.
