Made for meandering amongst the autumn leaves of a university lawn, Hartigan echoes the rise and fall of brick eaves and wrought iron. A runic alphabet of raised texture breaks the plane of stockinette smoothness, perfectly articulated in Peerie’s plump stitches. Distinctive finishings in the rolled cuffs and collar enhance Hartigan’s angular motif.
