Day for Night Top

Sarah Solomon

This top takes its name from the cinematography technique used to simulate a night scene while filming in daylight. The piece was designed as a modern take on the glamorous sweaters from films of the 1950s and 1960s, but with added length and a more generous ribbed hem. The result is a contemporary garment with subtle vintage style. It will pair well with high-waisted trousers, cropped pants, and flared skirts. Knitted in a luxurious yarn and featuring a selffinished neckline, this sweater comes together quickly in just four easy pieces.
