A wrap is a mighty handy thing to have these days, especially if it’s light, soft and airy and worked in pale and promising colors. It’s perfect for tossing around shoulders in a chilly restaurant or outdoors inside or outside of your jacket. I’ve had a thing for chevrons recently. I love their fluid movement and the energy they produce in fabric. They remind me of the exciting geometric patterned textiles of Sonia Delaunay, Orphism, and the reckless time between the wars. Marcelle is a little tamer, a glimpse of that time viewed through a long lens.
