norma / Leila Raven

This buttoned, v-neck cardigan with pockets is a classic shape that can be worn by anyone. Leila's thoughtful details—the half-twisted rib on hem, cuffs, pocket trim, and button bands, and the cascading cable motif at the fronts—set this piece apart. The cardigan is worked from the bottom up with top-down, set-in sleeves. A wardrobe staple for transitional weather.
