Loop - Teazel Cardigan
Bristol Ivy for Loop London using beautiful Shalimar Breathless CUSH.
Soft, curving eyelets shape the yoke and swingy body, and are echoed by pops of eyelet lace at the hem, cuffs and front band.
It's a balance of clean lines, femininity and playfulness.
Bristol said 'I decided on teazel because I thought the teazel blossoms echoed the lines of the yoke, and the eyelets echoed the little prickles on the blossoms.'
