handknit bolero in pink hues
Inspiration for the piece
In 1950, when the strapless dress, supported by bones, became popular, a brief jacket loosely described as a bolero also arrived on the scene as a modest cover to so much bare skin, and has stayed with us ever since. Most of the leading designers at some time have announced that the strapless dress is “out.” They have beguiled us away from it with shoestring straps, the halter neckline, or, this year, with an enchanting fichu made of diaphanous fabrics. But no one declares the bolero “out.”
It turns up at the fashion shows season after season and this piece is based on the 90s addition of the style. The piece is re-imagined with bell sleeves rather than the tight sleeve structure typical of the bolero adding a medieval look.
HOW IS IT SUSTAINABLE
Made from discontinued yarn and a wool blend.
