Aire River is a vintage inspired hoodie that captures the essence of beachside living. Its cosy hood and pockets hug the wearer in even the chilliest weather. Bold splashes of Noro colour juxtaposes with earthy tweeds to create a sweater that is sure to be every active girl’s favourite.

Aire River is so named for one of our favourite camping spots in coastal Victoria, Australia.

Construction:
