Ja Ja

Large buttons, structural tailoring and a pop of eye-catching colour makes Ja Ja a perfect piece for every occasion. It will be as equally at home in a more formal environment as it will at a casual, laid-back affair. Adding a sharper, edgier element to the Drift Collection, this knitted jacket would be an excellent accompaniment to jeans and leather boots. Ja Ja is knitted with the Åsa Tricosa Ziggurat method: all in one go from top to bottom, not a seam in sight. Ja Ja is a challenging knit which will be oh-so-satisfying to wear.
