This Art Nouveau inspired cardigan is an ode to one of the movement’s shining lights, Alphonse Mucha. The back cabled panel conveys movement and fluidity, accompanied by a textured teardrop pattern reminiscent of the same organic shapes that grounded much of the movement. The combination of textural stitches, cables, and loose draped style offers both contemporary versatility and classic comfort.
