A classic, gently shaped shell with a twist…literally. This two color top has a central cable running up both the back and the front. The interesting twist is that the cable is worked intarsia style so the colors cross over one another. The contrast color stays on the opposite side to form the trim along the V neckline.

Show in size 36”/M, (91.5 cm).
