Small town Aiken, South Carolina, abounding in equestrian history and equine events,
was the inspiration for this collection.
This “Look” features a jacquard riding coat, worn over a handknit cable sweater, a brioche
handknit skirt
and accessorized with a hand-tooled leather belt created from recycled leather.

The fully-fashioned suede-backed yoke is hand-framed.
The harness accessory worn over the coat was handmade using recycled leather and hardware
from horse riding tack, integrated with knit fabric.
