Calyx is the name of the outer leaves that protect a flower bud. Their overlapping nature inspired the construction of this cardigan as the back panel wraps over the shouder and around the side to leave no side seams, thus enveloping the wearer and reducing friction from arm movement.
The all-needle collar is designed in a minimalist Japanese Ukata shape that caresses the back neck and, from this high position, falls flatteringly on the body slimming and elongating. The tubular hem is designed to hang straight. It has a little step at the front to flatter the legs.
Hand framed from the finest Italian pima cotton it can be worn in a relaxed, loose way or cinched with its detachable waist tie.
