Our YUKI Collection is a design collaboration between Japanese knitwear designer Yuki Kushida and Tanja Lay. Deceptively simple geometric shaping unifies this line, in some cases with surprising results.

 

YUKI No. 6 is a lightweight bolero jacket ideal as day to evening wear. It gives you an additional layer of warmth without covering up too much of what you’re wearing beneath.  YUKI No. 6 is made from our beloved combination of ITO Kinu and ITO Sensai which is light and silky soft to the touch. This bolero brings elegance to any outfit along with a curved silhouette.
