This stunning jumper encapsulates the geometric trend with a bold diagonal line cutting right across the piece.

There is a place in my heart for all things mathematical, and this striking jumper with a diagonal slash across body and sleeves pleases the geometry-lover in me. The jumper is a celebration of 2 years in the knitwear design business for me. I sent off my first design proposal on a whim in Spring 2012 and I haven’t looked back since.
