The special feature of “Fond Memories”, a slightly fitted elegant pullover worked seamlessly top down with fake side seams, is the keyhole opening on the back neckline, an elegant detail rarely seen nowadays.

Especially comfortable thanks to a boat-neck neckline with applied i-cord finishing in conjunction with generously overcast shoulders, and with just the right touch of elegance provided by an airy lace pattern on the upper parts of the front, back and three-quarter length sleeves, this piece can be paired with just about everything from your wardrobe for a variety of stylish ensembles!
