At the unveiling event, the 2-way vest was well received by both genders. There is no front or front, so you can wear either V-neck or U-neck depending on your mood. Silver foil glitters on the collar.

Last year, a friend of designer Fujisawa gave birth to a new life. As I watched closely the physical and mental changes of the people I care about, I felt that it would be nice to have clothing that could change according to their body shape, and that was reflected in the design.

By opening and closing the four buttons on the side, you can adjust the size to suit your daily outfit or changes in body shape. For example, if you are wearing a blouse with voluminous sleeves, undoing the top button on a size M will widen the cuffs and keep the sleeves fluffy. If you unbutton the bottom button, your stomach area will look neat and light.

Both sizes M and L have a silhouette that allows you to freely create room in the sleeves and width of the body, so you can layer it over a knit in the middle of winter. Enjoy light layering with blouses and dresses in spring and fall.

An important point about the side button design is that it is easy to put on and take off. A vest that combines light comfort and functionality that allows for easy movement, is easy to mix and match as the seasons change, and is an item that can be worn throughout the season, from fall to this time of spring.

“Everything about us is changing. Mind, body, environment, and important things.
I'm sure knitwear will be created this year as well, one that embraces the fluctuations and welcomes the changing world. (YUKI FUJISAWA production diary/author Yume Nomura)”

[SIZE]

・M ¥69,300
Approximately 400g Width 47cm | Length 45cm
This size is for women. It has a compact silhouette that you can enjoy layering under a coat or with a dress. All sides can be opened and closed with four buttons, so it can be used with voluminous tops.

・L ¥73,700
Approximately 520g Width 55cm | Length 57cm
This size is recommended for men and women who prefer a loose fit. Since it is longer than the M, it is designed with some seams under the armpits for a gentler fit on the body, making it easier to wear. We also paid attention to the silhouette, which gives a beautiful drape when viewed from the back.

[COLOR]

・WHISPER
Deep ecru color. The colors of natural jewels are scattered inside. The soft yellow of a chick's feathers, the light blue of the sky at sunrise, the gentle beige of a sandy beach... When viewed from a distance, the ecru color naturally fits any outfit, but when you get closer, you'll see a landscape filled with vitality.
The standard white color for Aran knits shows off the three-dimensional Aran knitting pattern and gives you the warmth of hand-knitting. It has a classic and calm atmosphere where you want to spend some peaceful time together.

・WOOD
The Baltic countries (Estonia, Latvia, and Lithuania) have rich timber resources and are popular for wooden construction. The colors of the walls and soil of the historic 18th century townscape that I saw at the Museum of Ethnic Life were deeply engraved in my mind. The history and culture of the area is alive and well, and by skillfully mixing grayish colors that give a sense of the passage of time, you can feel the change of seasons and the breath of nature. It reminds me of a quiet autumn landscape or a snow-covered winter landscape. A mixed beige that mysteriously fits any outfit from mode to casual.

・GRASSLAND
``Look out the window. Expressing the color green is the most difficult task for me,'' said Nora, a craftsman I met at a wool factory in Ireland. Born and raised in the natural environment of Donegal, which is famous for its mountains and rich grasslands, the color green has a special meaning for her as a color mixer. The rural roads of Northern Ireland, the streets of Scandinavia, and the bright green colors of the coniferous trees heading into autumn that I saw with Nora were forever etched in my eyes.
The calm moss green color evokes a sense of peace and connection with nature. It is a rustic and calming color that reminds you of nostalgic scenery.

・BALTIC SEA
This colorful and light navy blue was inspired by the color of the sea at night as it travels from the Baltic country of Estonia to Finland. In the deep sea, the light of red lamps, the stars of the night sky, and the white foam of the waves appear. Navy blue blends together as if dancing in the sea, creating an exquisite harmony. Let your imagination run wild with the ancient Baltic Sea voyages and nocturnal adventures. By blending two different colors of blue, green blue and purple blue, from Donegal Yarns' standard colors, we have created an even deeper original blue. It gently illuminates your winter outfit.


[BUTTONS]

Four original ceramic buttons with the YUKI FUJISAWA logo are displayed on the sides. At the ONLINE reservation event, you can choose your favorite button coloring.

・Colorful buttons are selected by the designer. I'm looking forward to seeing what kind of combination it will be after it arrives.

・Pair it with the color of your natural sweater and use buttons of the same color to create a classic look. The rich texture and stitches of the threads, which are unique to handicrafts, stand out.


【MATERIAL】

100% PURE MERINO WOOL (origin: Ireland)

Ireland is a traditional wool producing region. We toured the Donegal Yarns factory, which is one of the oldest wool spinning factories and continues to produce wool today. When the first mills were established in the Donegal region of northwest Ireland in the early 1800s, the wool and tweed fabrics spun in this region quickly gained a reputation for their warmth and durability, and became sought after around the world. It has a long history.

Donegal Yarn is made using traditional methods that have been passed down through generations. There are even craftsmen who have worked for two generations, and wool continues to be produced by professional hands using manufacturing methods that have remained unchanged to this day. The dyeing, blending, and twisting techniques of skilled craftsmen put their passion into creating a single yarn.

Sometimes Nep of a different color than the recipe or plants brought in by the sheep are mixed into the thread, which is proof that they are aiming for zero waste. Because we value the blessings of nature and emphasize production without waste, all of the wool produced during the yarn blending process within the factory is recycled into a single yarn.

The beauty of the thread, which is infused with the passion of craftsmen who value making things with their own hands and do not waste a single piece, makes you feel a connection with nature and the warmth of handiwork. This 100% wool yarn has a soft and beautiful texture, like an Aran sweater from the good old days. Sheep wool has high heat retention and durability. We have carefully selected threads that have the beauty that only comes from handicrafts, making them look as if they were spun by hand, increasing the joy of being clothed in the blessings of nature.

[HOW TO CARE]

You can hand wash it at home with a neutral detergent. After purchase, we also undertake after-sales maintenance such as repairing frayed knits and foil stamping.

【NOTICE】

Due to handwork, individual differences in size may occur. Please enjoy the uniqueness of each piece as a handcrafted texture. Pre-order products are pre-release samples, so some specifications may change.
