AGAIN COLLECTION: The brand you need to know if you dig cozy sweaters as much as I do

essellesse talks again collection - shannon silver's favourite for cozy knits!

Over the summer, I was invited to a fun event at Azalea, a local boutique in Hayes Valley here in San Francisco. Basically, we were tattooing denim – see mine here!

I got there a little early – which is a shocker because I’m always unbecomingly late {working on it!!!} – but I did have an ulterior motive… to shop before the event started.

While browsing the racks, I came across a brand I basically fell head over heels in love at first sight.

Again Collection

It was the middle of July, but I could not get enough of the cozy knits!

I am a HUGE sweater person. Give me a sweater, make it mock neck or cable knit, & I’m yours.

I bought the Collin sweater & ECHOES sweater and basically counted down the days until Fall like every other girl out there in the world. I love the fit, they are oversized with long sleeves {!!!} & are just so flattering. Love a long sleeve, anyone else?!

A little bit about the AGAIN Collection: it’s designed by designer Amber Kekich-Purling & LA based. Amber grew up in a small town in Colorado with short summers and long winters so her line is all about warmth & the pieces will last forever.

Seriously, just by looking at them, you can tell they are HIGH quality. The styles are timeless, I could easily wear these a decade or two from now {& I fully intend to!! expect a backlink to this post in 2028 – ha!}. Regarding sizing, I bought my normal size. You could probably even size down but I like things to be oversized, as you know.

In fact, the Collin sweater reminds me of 80s ski prep… an 80s trend I am SO about, obvs. It also kind of reminds me of Sonic the Hedgehog which is another thing I am all for.

I find her pieces are classic with a modern touch if that makes sense. I also love that the pieces can be unisex. Unisex apparel is my ALL TIME FAVE. It goes with out saying that I’m a FAN and look forward to adding more to my closet.

Here are some sweaters from AGAIN I am digging!

lifestyle blogger shannon silver of essellesse talks cozy sweaters she wants for Fall!

{ ONE }: Lotus SweaterCable knit, subtle colour blocking, & a turtleneck?! Does it get any better? This just screams fall & I dig it.

{ TWO }: JACK top: How good is this?! Colour blocked is IN for Fall. You know I’m digging the mockneck but loving all the primary-ish colours. So 80s!

{ THREE }: Everly Dress Sweater: obsessed with the blue details on the sleeves & necklines. Sucha  cozy dress for cooler temps!

{ FOUR }: Romeo Sweater: This sweater is so chic and versatile! Would be super cute belted as a dress, over leggings, or some tights!

{ FIVE }: Cory Sweater: The print & Cable knit on this is so good! I love the preppy vibes. Would be super cute with an A-line skirt & tights for that schoolgirl vibe.

{ SIX }: Temptation Dress: This sweater dress is SO SPICY. I love the sweater fabric, zipper slit details, but especially love the cutouts in a bit of an unexpected place. Lots of sex appeal AND it’s on sale.

{ SEVEN }: Kashmir Hoodie: I LOVE fuzzy sweaters! They really have that late 90’s / y2k vibe. This is an edgier play on that that is perfect for Halloween!

{ EIGHT }: Ramone Yellow Sweater: I am LOVING bright yellow for Fall! Such a statement colour & a fun twist on the mustard yellow that’s hella in right now.

If you’re looking for cozy knits, AGAIN is for you! A lot are on sale & for the quality, they are VERY reasonably priced.

I dig the 80s vibe they have, not to mention the dresses and separates are super cute too! HAD to share.

Any other sweater brands you love I need to try? Let me know… ALWAYS looking to add to my mockneck or cable knit collection? 😉

  • maybe it’s the New York speaking but I’m kinda digging an 80s Wall Street vibe for fall {three-martini lunches included} ⚡️🍸🏦 #slsnyc
  • house hunting in west village ⚜️ jk... or am I?  #nyloveyou #slsnyc
  • graduated from #fohru yesterday 🎓📃 I learned SO MUCH from the @fohr.co conference but here are my biggest takeaways - which applies so much more than just influencers and Instagram but really any field:
⚜️ give life back to your content & passions. Whatever your niche is, make it come alive. Tell your story & give it life. Don’t be a character, be yourself. What is the story you are telling about your life?
⚜️ to “influence”, you have to teach someone something. Work with what you know and have and your niche is what you are an expert in. Stay true to your craft!
⚜️ create timeless content. The internet is forever so create content that will still get hits years from now.
⚜️ organic content is SO MUCH MORE important than sponsored content. This is CRUCIAL.
⚜️ Be more than “just an influencer”. What can you provide others beyond an Instagram post? This can create opportunities you never thought was possible! Showcase your expertise & be dynamic.
⚜️ Collaborate, collaborate, COLLABORATE! Support likeminded influencers and grow your relationship. You will succeed together, create rad content along the way, & make lasting friendships {love you @colette.prime!}
⚜️ INSTAGRAM WILL DIE. This was written on a slide {wish I got a photo of that for the gram ha} but it will & sooner than you think. What is your plan beyond instagram?  Work on it NOW. Instagram is a {VERY} short game - play the long game to create sustainability.
⚜️ don’t worry about the numbers. Seriously, it’s dangerous to fret over follows & unfollows so take care of your mental health. I can’t tell you how many mega influencers and people behind brands said this: numbers don’t matter but who you are, the content you produce, your work ethic, and how you make people feel does.
⚜️finally, BE KIND & HUMBLE. I was in awe by how NICE everyone was, no matter how huge they are. Your numbers {which don’t matter!!} don’t make you better than anyone. Work hard, be nice, stay humble.
✨⚜️✨
Lastly, I can’t recc the @fohr.co youtube series “A DRINK WITH JAMES” w @jamesnord enough. Really just a wealth of information on the influencer world. It will set you up for success. Anything else you wanna know, just ask!!
