Lonnng Shirt in Indigo-Iron Gray Merino Wool Ikat
This is huge. Literally. The Lonnng Shirt's extended sleeves and hem keep out cold drafts and layer over or under a wide range of silhouettes, making it an indispensable piece for winter styling. The midweight, naturally dyed 100% merino ikat weave has a weight and handfeel strikingly similar to linen, making it a perfect piece for transitional weather in fall and spring when worn on its own, or a formidable tool in your winter layering toolkit when worn over a thermal base with a heavy coat on top.
Ikat weaves are made by space-dyeing yarns to create variations in color which are then woven precisely to align those yarn variations to form patterns in the finished cloth. This technique requires incredible foresight and skill, and is adaptable to many styles.
Featuring two large breast pockets, drop shoulders, double-pleat dolman sleeves, mother of pearl buttons, and Ahimsa silk quarter-lined shoulders for added comfort.
Naturally self-cleaning, wool repels water and dirt, and its keratin content breaks down sweat that may accumulate on the surface of the fiber during wear, making woolen items extremely easy to care for. Allow woolens to air out for one full day after each wear for best results.
Bridging traditional Indian textile arts and contemporary design, Mia Morikawa and Shani Himanshu's 11.11 / eleven eleven works with handloomed fabrics and traditional plant dyes to produce easy-wearing, sometimes virtuosic, versatile pieces to fit a modern lifestyle.
