The rich azure of the ocean, the white of the sea foam and glowing gold of lichen on black rocks are combined in this cropped boxy Fair Isle sweater – a traditional fabric with modern style. Alternating bright bands with darker, energetic patterning hint at the rhythmic beating of the waves against cliffs.
