Description

Julie Hoover’s Kirwin for Brooklyn Tweed’s Winter 2017 collection exhibits simple comfort elevated by carefully chosen details. This poncho style vest with split hem and a cartridge rib collar is textured with a diagonal seeded pattern that changes direction on the bias. An exposed seam highlights the gracefully sloped shoulders and an I-cord edging creates a neat and minimalist finish. Brooklyn Tweed considers Kirwin a level 3 out of 5 in difficulty.
