Greenwich Village Cardigan
Of those who have seen the film, who doesn’t remember the awe-inspiring black-and-white dress Grace Kelly’s character Lisa Fremont wears in Rear Window? It was hot the day she wore it, but what if the weather had been different and she would have needed a cardigan to keep warm? Greenwich Village is a fitted cardigan featuring a delicate lace panel down the front and on the sleeves. The cardigan is worked from the top down and is entirely seamless. Knit in a luxury sport weight yarn with beautiful drape, Greenwich Village is just the cardigan to complement your Grace-inspired look.
