While a sweater is commonly synonymous with a piece of clothing to keep you warm in cold weather, Calvin Klein has created an unexpected design.

The fashion house has released a garment that may keep your arms warm with its knit wool sleeves, but that's as far as it goes, as the torso portion is made from sheer fabric to keep the body exposed. 

The "Multicolor Wool Cheerleader Sweater" is seemingly created for style rather than a purchase of practicality. With its white and blue sleeves, the fashion statement does not come cheap.

Priced at EUR 1,810 (US$2,100) as sold on SSENSE, a popular luxury e-retailer, the garment for men is already sold out, as reported by The Independent

Created by the label's 205W39NYC line, a similar style for women is also available. Designed with red stripes on its sleeves, model Carolyn Murphy dons the daring garment on a magazine cover, as posted on Calvin Klein's Instagram. 

Women may not be running to it as enthusiastically as the men, however, since the "Beige & Red Stocking Sweater" for women is still availble on SSENSE as of time of publication. (liz/kes)
