Designed with Greta Garbo in mind, I wanted to create a matching skirt and jacket that was glamorous, sexy, and sophisticated just like her. With a choice of long or short skirt length, the shapely jacket is a contemporary take on classic thirties’ styling. Knitted in a lustrous mix of mohair and wool, it’s just the sort of thing that Garbo might have worn under her trench coat.
