The designer drew inspiration from Ann Veronica (H. G. Wells, 1909), a novel about the “New Woman” and the British suffragist movement. In it, a middle-class girl rebels against her father and strikes out on her own. The cardigan she inspired here combines Edwardian lace and soft curves for a modern look.
