A dramatic peplum creates a memorable silhouette and a very engaging knit. Nobu is a study in texture as well as form. A dense lattice of small cables on the back and sleeves creates flattering diagonal lines and lends the necessary structure to support the peplum’s flare, while the front is embellished with OXO motifs flanking a panel that looks like rings of chainmail. The tailored shapes are worked flat from the bottom up and sewn together. Because the cabled fabric in Shelter is quite dense, allow yourself 2-4” of ease to achieve a fit that’s svelte but not restrictive.
