Step into the season with this urban styled cropped hooded tee. Loose fitting for maximum comfort and a unique yoke design for a clean aesthetic.

The initial inspiration for this intermediate design stemmed from the encouraging message of a friend that I can never forget, who in turn gave the name for this spring garment as well. After the message, I envisioned what the design could really become and sought out more inspiration from the clean lines found in architecture. Born in a big city, I remember the high-rise buildings and skyscrapers, most intricately designed. Whether it is the carvings, or glass placement, or even the shadows, the uniformity quietly stands out. In a softer light, the Dahlia flower stands tall and strong as a skyscraper with its petals blooming in unison. While the yoke of the Dahlia Hoodie embodies the quiet designs found in structure of the city buildings, the flowy aesthetic grants the softness of spring flowers.
