This knitted tunic is part of a capsule wardrobe designed by Sari Nordlund, comprising nine designs perfectly compatible with each other. The capsule wardrobe concept was introduced in Britain in the 1970’s, and has recently regained popularity as fashion consumption slowly shifts in a more sustainable direction.

The collection is named Oodi, and each garment is named after a Finnish female writer. Kaari Utrio is known for her historic novels.
