Lycka is a light and airy summer top with simple straight lines, a rounded back and a triangularly-shaped lace rib pattern at the front. The partial shadow provided by a roof of leaves on a hot summer day inspired the unique but very easy lace rib pattern that extends the v-neck shape to create a feminine and flattering look.
