With a nod to the classic styles of the 1950s, this design was inspired as much by one of Hitchcock’s female leads (Kim Novak playing both Judy and Madeleine) as the film in which she appears, Vertigo.

From the bodice’s garter zigzag stitch pattern that recalls that jagged feeling of true vertigo to the fitted ribbings and rich red colorway, the Judy Henley blends vintage elements with a contemporary silhouette for a sweater with everyday and work-worthy appeal.
