Product description

“While I was preparing for this collection, I realized that there was a common “stripes” theme running through my garment designs, which continued (quite unintentionally) with the concept for this poncho. The use of minimal colorwork brings this poncho to life, without overwhelming it. A ribbed edging and I-Cord neckline add finishing details that elevate it from simple accessory to something very special.” – Julie Hoover
