Double Time: A Cardigan-Coat Hybrid from Akris

Jens Mortensen

The essential jacket for those too-warm winter days.

As fall treads into winter, the need for layering pieces that pull back-to-back shifts becomes all the more necessary—knits need to be light enough for crisp November days, warm enough for cold December nights. Ever the pragmatist, Akris creative director Albert Kriemler delivers with a cardigan-coat hybrid that does the work. The fine-gauge two-ply cashmere makes it a classic wardrobe essential. The detachable hood and vibrant combo of tangerine and bougainvillea, however, make this sweater anything but basic.
