Own a Monroe classic

French fashion designer Gérard Darel (whose celeb followers include Angelina Jolie, Jennifer Garner and Eva Longoria Parker) pays homepage to the 1960s icon

The 1960s film Let's Make Love might not be the best known of Marilyn Monroe's movies, but the cable knit jumper she wore while singing the soundtrack My Heart Belongs To Daddy is an icon in its own right.

Celebrity designer Darel picked up the original at a Christie's auction in 1999 for an undisclosed sum, and more than a decade later he's paid homage to the knit by reproducing a new line of on trend, cable sweaters in off-white, sky blue, khaki and red.

This isn’t the first time that Gérard has bought an icon’s piece and reproduced it, in 1996 Gérard bought Jackie Kennedy’s famous black bead necklace.

The Monroe jumper is available from Gérard Darel, 21 Marylebone High Street: 020-7487 5418 / 78, and High Street St John’s Wood: 020-7586 9027, £130. For more information visit gerarddarel.com
