Inspired by the soft shades of spring flowers, Haru-Gasumi (Japanese for “Spring Haze”) is a clean, fitted pullover. Mari chose three delicate shades from Loft’s palette to create a beautiful edging detail to adorn this clean, tailored garment. The hem/cuff pattern combines color striping with a special slip-stitch technique to create a blending transition from dark to light. The hourglass silhouette gives the pullover a subtle elegance and allows the patterned trim details to take focus.
