The Nordique Swing jacket combines a cropped swing-coat silhouette, square sleeves, and an offset allover lace with a smart short-row–shaped stand-up collar for a layering piece with staying power. Veronik Avery uses increases and decreases to transfer stitches from the body fronts to the neck edge and joins collar extensions at the back of the neck for stability. A firm vintage-inspired wool adds structure.
