Jeanne C. Abel

for Nature Speak Knits   2005

Wisp Around Vest

"This lightweight, sophisticated vest has an intriguing yet incredibly simple construction," says Abel. "It is designed to be knitted in fibers with lots of drape. Its crossed back adds to its flowing look and allows it to hang attractively on just about any body size and shape. A smaller size will hang short and cropped, a larger size will hang long with a lot of swing. Shown in Louet's Euroflax Linen and Fiesta Starburst. Silk, cotton or rayon blends also give beautiful results." As always with this designer, we are gobsmacked by the simplicity and utter coolness. And we want to wear it backwards under a blazer, too.
