From Knitty:

Every woman needs a black strappy dress as a wardrobe staple for glam-on-the-go. But on those nippy evenings when her date’s jacket simply won’t do in terms of style or warmth, she might happily reach for a soft feminine jacket of her own.

Aoife† is a cutaway-front bolero in 100% cashmere with set-in lantern sleeves, embellished with a celtic braided trim. The trim is knit separately and sewn directly onto the garment. The additional weight of the trim lends a lovely drape to the jacket and an elegant silhouette to the stand-up collar.

† The female Irish name Aoife (pronounced EE-feh) means “radiant” hopefully just what the wearer of this jacket ought to feel when it’s on!
