Soft and inviting, Anteprima’s 100% spun silk long cardigan is cut with an open front and a cool flare tail. Wear this luxe coverup now to stay warm in an air-conditioned office, layering it over skinny leather pants for Fall.

Anteprima was the first brand headed by a Japanese woman designer to appear on the Milan catwalks, debuting at the Milano Moda Donna in 1998.
