Hello, Bateau

Coco brought it to the mainstream. Audrey put it in pictures. And Meghan wore one to become a royal. The ultra-feminine boatneck just conveys that covetable, timeless, fresh-from-the-Riviera vibe. Which is why we put it on our short list of styles while building our fall collection.

But you don’t have to actually be bound for the Riviera/a boat/a royal wedding to work the Brighton Boatneck into your wardrobe. The bateau neckline is about as versatile as it gets, and ours has the signature softness and all-day, every day ease of sustainable vello fleece.

Here’s how we’re wearing it, on and off duty.

Paired with flared denim, the boatneck loves leisure time.
