Cardigan Sweater

Sold in Summer 1987 and Spring 1988 in Natural, Bronze, Faded Sage, Dark Olive and Mustard.

From Summer 1987: “Cardigans need not be relegated to twin sets and teatime. Ours is multifaceted, practical–and surprisingly feisty. The strong stuff it’s made of–self-sufficient cotton of unquestionable fiber–is soft but substantial; when the debate heats up it stays cool and refined. It stands on its own as a shirt, or can be worn unbuttoned over a shirt. Like resourceful modern women, this sweater easily takes on both pearls and politics.”
