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
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.
The colorful equestrian riding coat features equine-inspired jacquard, balanced with
solid fully-fashioned sleeves and shawl collar.
The leather used for the seam bindings and the handmade harness accessory were upcycled.
The hand-tooled leather belt was made from a recycled horse girth by altering the ends
and joining them with an upcycled buckle.
The bay color sweater was handknit using sustainable mohair yarn.
Horseshoe cables accent body and sleeve centers.
The fully-fashioned skirt is handknit in 2-color brioche stitch.
