KIKA

幾何 (jap.) – geometry

This triangular shawl is a transform garment and accessory. Worked with custom pattern that creates differently textured looks on each side – dimensional square basket weave on one and diamond eyelet on the other which renders this knit completely reversible. Worn in a variety of styles – as a cardi-vest, back and front top, upside down and a shawl as a kerchief  makes Kika a true versatile staple of anyone’s wardrobe.
