Anchored is a summer top that mixes demure and sensual, day and night.
From the front, it’s a “barely there” elegant top, with a sleek look and no distractions.
The back shows off skin through the crossings as well as featuring all the decreases for figure shaping. The upper back has a series of decreases on both Right and Wrong sides that creates the curvaceous lines leading to the shoulders.
A show-stopper. Make it in summery cotton for everyday wear in the sun or in a smooth silk for a night out.
