{Irish: crossing}

A simple, seamless, front-back reversible tank top, Trasnú is a quick summer project that is sure to get plenty of wear.

The elegant cross-over design keeps the wide straps firmly and comfortably 
in place - so that they can’t slide off the shoulders or dig into your skin.

You can wear this top with the cross-over at back for a sporty aesthetic, or with the cross-over at front for a more glamorous look. As fetching in solid colours as it is in stripes, Trasnú will look equally at home in the garden, at the beach, and on a night out.
