Description
Coralie Meslin's Braided Riding Jacket is a study in textures: a wave cable edging, a wrapped stitch at the yoke and sleeves, and a large-repeat allover cable for the bodice. Wide cable strands enclose diamonds of bobbles, while narrower strands trace them for an intricately woven effect. Surprise: Separate diamonds only cross in one place—the basketweave effect is an illusion.
