With pleasing proportions and purposeful construction, Solenn is the quintessential basic, made better. Featuring all-around relaxed ease at the body, sleeves, and neckline, this piece encourages comfortable layering with fellow closet staples, while remaining trim at the hems with neatly-finished ribbing. Hybrid raglan and saddle shoulders fit elegantly and are intriguing to work, with shaping accomplished by fashioned double decreases for decorative yet professional effect. Overall stockinette keeps Solenn both cool and minimal, and able to showcase Loft’s humble texture — a true example of form meeting function.


This garment is worked flat in pieces from the bottom up, then sewn together. The collar is picked up and worked circularly after garment assembly.
