The feminine textured shell is radically reimagined with color-blocked inserts for a slimming and strikingly modern couture look. Designer Michele Wang writes, “While taking a patternmaking class, I became interested in the idea of princess seams in knits. Princess seams can end up at the shoulder or curve into the armhole.
