From the Designer: I started from the principle that you have to be creative when designing a 100% wool garment while living in Texas. How can you make a wool garment work for the warmer weather combined with the arctic air-conditioning practices of many workplaces in this area? I decided that layers are the answer - something without much coverage, and something easy to take off and carry around when heading into the afternoon sunshine (Conveniently, this is also the sort of clothing item that works for late spring in Toronto or Boston). I also paid a lot of attention to the geometry of the garment. The curved lines at the front edges balance the strong horizontal of the waistband. Finally, whatever I designed would have to look good with a pair of cowboy boots. The lace edging at the bottom hem and sleeves lend the sweater a touch of retro chic, a thread that runs through seemingly every fashion trend in Austin, no matter the season.
