Linea by Louis Dell'Olio Printed Crew Neck Cardigan
This is a lovely all year sweater,light enough for summer,but I will lay for fall/winter.It is slimming,ordered a lg , closes well, no pulling,love the added touch of the ribbon and buttons.I ordered all three colors,all colors are great,thanks for the easy pay.Thanks Mr. L for yet another great piece.
This is beautiful!
I don't know why I waited so long to order this sweater. I got the olive and it is stunning. I think it runs a little big. I also wear an XL and sometimes a 1X. The 1X is a little big but I don't want to chance sending it back. The design has a slimming effect with the vertical pattern.
this sweater is very nice. I got the olive green and brown. My sizing usually waffles back and forth between an XL & 1X , bust is a 40DD. I got the 1X in this sweater, which is just a bit large. I am hoping that it will size down when I wash it. I did also order the olive tank, but it's on waitlist. I plan on wearing this with brown pants, brown skirt & tights with boots. Any color tank underneath would be ok. Ivory, olive, brown, all would work.
The knit is a fine gauge and not bulky. The olive ribbon along the front placket is a really nice touch. This is my first purchase from this designer, I'm VERY impressed!
I will for sure be ordering from Louis AGAIN!!
I ordered two of these, one navy and one olive to in my regular size Large. Pattern and colors are so pretty. I am in Southern California, so don't really need a heavier weight sweater most of the year. The olive works with all my olive bottoms from Louis and so cute with the brown wide leg pull on pants and sandals since it is still 90 degrees here.
I have the navy sateen crop pants and the lavender tank with the ruffle trim and will wear those with the navy sweater to an afternoon bbq this weekend. Pretty, polished, casual and yet if I change the bottom to gray slacks for work or Louis's navy knit pencil skirt and the tank for a knit shell or tank, I am off to work. Just the right weight to wear in air conditioning or a warm office come winter -whenever it gets here.
The pattern is gorgeous and as so many others have commented, looks completely different on both sweaters. The colors are beautiful and will work with so many things already in my closet, the navy one with jeans and the olive one with the olive boho, olive crops, olive pants, over the light olive shell and wondering how it will look with the olive herringbone slacks...
Happy, happy, happy with these sweaters.
5 Star Summer Sweater
Just gorgeous. The fabric weight is perfect and the finishing is like a much more expensive sweater. The pattern is young nd fun without being ridiculous. Love you Louis!
Fresh new take on a cardigan
This cardigan has everything--beautiful shaping, and modern up-to-the minute coloring and pattern. Louis understands color better than any designer on QVC. The olive is a great choice for early fall. (But I may go back for the navy too). Looks expensive!!
gorgeous but too cropped
I love the mocha and the purple one. It's a beautiful sweater, but it needs a touch of spandex, and it needs to be about 2 inches longer. I can't wear many of Linea items as the tops/jackets are too cropped. I'm five 8 and I totally understand how petite women love his line. He seems to design for petite women, and I'm fairly tall. I'd have kept this had it been even 1.5 to 2 inches longer. I wish Louis would mix it up and add a few tops and cardis that offer a bit more length for those of us he wants to sell to that are taller. I have not bought several tops/sweaters/jackets lately strictly due to the length being too short, but I do love this sweater and it's lovely. Also add spandex. THANKS
Purchased the espresso with beautiful shades of peach & aqua (magic mint). Fits true to size in a good length & weight of knit. Looks very pretty with my sleeveless Linea dresses (Toasted Almond & Green) to wear on those cool Alaskan summer days. Just love Louis' inspiration of the butterfly wing to create this lovely abstract print. A pleasure to own - many compliments.
Got the brown. Went back for another brown and the navy. Pretty, unique, well made. Couldn't be more pleased.
So Unlike Dell'Olio
I was stunned by the poor quality of the knit and how easily the buttonholes became misshapen. Mr. Dell'Olio, I would rather pay more and receive the quality for which you are reknowned and upon which I have come to rely. You lead the pack in quality of fabric, tailoring and design and I only hope you can withstand the pressure to retain your position. I ordered both the navy and olive multi and they are both returning.
I ordered both the navy and expresso. Both are just lovely and I am anxious to wear them. I am a busty size 8 (36DD) and the small fit perfectly...with plenty of room for layering. Louis...please bring us more print cardigans. I am on waitlist for 2 of your tie dyed cardigans. Sure hope I get them!
I just adore this sweater.... I ordered my usual size XL and it fit perfect... and so very, very pretty...!!
