Fierce and fashion forward while staying comfortable and effortless with a play on masculine textures and shape with some unexpected elements. Somewhere between modern minimalism and thrift store chic, this piece is meant to kick up your style a notch just by throwing on a top. It’s something you can wear to brunch in Soho with a pair of great skinny jeans, cute heels, and Ray Bans.
