As Biggie Smalls once wisely remarked, "Every cutie with a booty want a COOGI".

Words by

Sinead Stubbins

COOGI is the label with nine lives. The standard sweater of choice for middle aged people in 1970s Australia, the brand then experienced a surge in popularity when hip hop artists such as Biggie Smalls began donning their knitted, multicoloured wares in the '90s. 

Now, because everything old is new again in the internet age, COOGI is back exclusively at New York streetwear emporium KITH. Aussie, Aussie, Aussie!
