U.S. Supreme Court Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg is known for her dissenting opinions. When she reads a dissent, she often wears a particular collar, or “jabot.” It’s a striking visual adornment and as soon as I saw it, I knew I wanted to design a yoke sweater inspired by it. This sweater, Dissent, is my tribute to the Notorious RBG. May we all channel her when wearing our own Dissent.
