Join Assistant Curator Victoria Sperotto as she explains how a JW Anderson cardigan was adopted by a fandom as a way to foster connection during the Covid-19 pandemic. Worn by Harry Styles and made popular by Liv Huffman's remake, the cardigan and its many iterations came to represent a generational DIY movement with new ideas on fashion and individuality.
