A modern interpretation of a silhouette popular at various points in history from the medieval era to the 1920’s, Lavinia is a short-sleeved sweater that features an ostrich plume lace inset in a contrasting color. The rectangular inset creates a trompe l’oeil effect that is quite flattering on nearly any figure.
