Fickle Heart - Digital download
Often a change of heart means a change of clothes. Our moods lead us right into our closets in search of the appropriate outfit. Feeling sporty? A soft comfy hoodie is in order. Feeling sexy? We want to show off our curves with a body-hugging silhouette and lots of feminine details. With Fickle Heart both inclinations are satisfied in one button-front cardigan. The clingy fabric with cables galore is all woman, while an array of eyelets and the reverse stockinette hood make it breatheable and playful.
