This garment is a modern, easy-to-wear cover-up, part oversize vest, part shawl. Its refined details derive from the techniques used to create the fabric and construct the garment rather than from additional embellishments. Selvedges are important to the construction of the piece, while the elegant shape and closure delight the eye.
