Topkapi Cardigan

234.00TL Sale Save
A dropped waist, open front easy fit cardigan with slight negative ease at waist, flared at the hip. The name is inspired by the centuries-old, beautifully chaotic decor within the Harem at Istanbul’s Topkapi Palace, where patterns, colors and textures collide every which way, much like this cardigan. For a more refined version, Topkapi also worked up well in Urth’s Monokrom Cotton.
