Note from the designer:
The superb drape of Australian Superfine Merino by Cleckheaton is shown to its full advantage in this oversize boxy tunic. Wear it with bare arms like our model, or layered up with long sleeves underneath. Style it in different ways with the detachable cowl neck, which is made as a separate piece. It’s a key look for winter, trans-seasonal and beyond.
