Vertical, repeating motifs are the epitome of Art Deco, the style I think of as the universal marker of urban architecture in the United States. Arabella is a luxurious garment featuring naturally dyed yarn made of alpaca, cashmere, and silk. Its body is filled with simple patterning, while each sleeve holds one strip of lacework down its center. The finished piece is warm, lightweight, and timeless.
