Welcome to February!

We are excited to continue sharing our fashion journey with you. Our newest feature, the “Criss-Cross Vest” designed by Lidia Karabinech, is a bit more avant-garde than what we usually offer, but the concept was so inspiring we had to share. The vest features many interesting techniques to give it the architecture we wanted to achieve.

Our String Exclusive Classica Bulky, a 100% cashmere yarn, was the perfect choice for this piece. Our vision was to create a super soft garment that could be used as an outer layer or worn indoors over a simple top. The Classica Bulky works up like a dream and lends itself well to the large, elongated cables.

String Yarns Criss Cross Vest
Cables are one of the hottest textures this season and the decision to create them on only part of the garment is genius because it removes any bulk that an all over cable sweater can sometimes produce. The cables are worked on the bias, creating movement that is both flattering and extremely comfortable. They are surrounded by smooth stockinette stitch, making them the focus of the garment, without being an overwhelming element. The cables also create the shape. Even though the overall silhouette is relaxed, there is shaping in all the “right” places.

The “Criss-Cross Vest” is in style, yet timeless. A woman of any age can wear this and feel great.

Sizes sm/med (40") and large/x-large (44").

Color shown: #200073

Also offered in regular priced Filatura Di Crosa Zara merino yarn.
