This classic vest is named for Geneva Misener (1878–1961). She was the first female professor at the University of Alberta and a vocal spokesperson for women’s rights in the province. Geneva has a timeless appeal, with cable details that are a hallmark of the designer and a nod to the beautiful architecture of the university. Wear it in the fall, winter and spring—to class, to work, or to the park. You’ll make a statement, just like Geneva.
