Cycling Sweater


This top was essentially designed by my daughter when she was 11. She picked her colours, drew the shape and had me put my skills in her service. The result is this body hugging & sleek number, which – something tells me – is going to see a lot of wear!

A very versatile little number. You can dress it up or down. Either way, the silk feels great on the skin!
