Unique and incredibly versatile, the Strasbourg Vest is the brainchild of designer Kim Guzman. Knit in Country Spice House, the basic vest is transformed by a pleated, adjustable collar. Expand the collar and you can wear it off the shoulder for an evening look. Or expand just the back portion to achieve a dramatic look. Simple drawstrings pulled through knitted eyelets are the secret to what will make this vest a wardrobe favorite.
