This is a sweater designed by Sonia Rykiel, known as the “queen of the knits”. The sweater is made in a very attractive solid taupe colour. It has shoulder pads, long batwing shaped sleeves and a collared neckline that is decorated with a bow in matching colour. It does up the back with nine buttons and has ties at the lower back that cinch the waist.
