Olival is a summer top with an A-line silhouette and a diamond cable pattern at the front. It’s a perfect piece for your summer wardrobe - light and airy with interesting details such as a faux side seam and double-knit edges. Olival means olive grove in Portuguese and the inspiration for this pattern comes from exactly such scenery. The side cables of the main pattern remind me of drops of olive oil, while the ribbed pattern inside each diamond resembles rows of olive trees in a grove.
