That color—that dive-in, deep, luscious, ruby red—just steals the show. But there’s more. Ruffled bands of ribbons swirl around the expansive shawl collar and across the lower back before ending in a tumble of bows down the front. The shimmer of the sheer silk welts contrasts with the soft halo and denser weave of the merino and silk blend welts on either side. This semi-fitted Swirl offers broad lapels to wrap and style according to whim, but its fine, light fabric is perhaps at its most beautiful when simply left open and allowed to flutter and ripple on the move.
