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.

 

The soft hang of this two-way jacket belies its underlying geometry. Formed of straight lines and right angles, YUKI No. 4 takes a simple T-shape and gives it contour and depth. Knit flat using only the most basic of stitches, the magic comes when it is seamed and finished with arm cuffs knit in the round. No. 4 can be flipped vertically for two different fits, with sleeves high for a stylish daytime cover, or sleeves low, poncho-style, for bundling up and keeping out the evening chills.
