It features side panels, the front has a welt pocket in the top left, the vertical darts transition into double welt pockets with flaps which continue over the side panels. The back features shoulder darts and the centre back seam ends with a vent. The shoulder line is extended.

The blazer has a long set-in two-piece sleeve. It’s fully finished with a lining and is below-the-hip length.
A special feature of the Ariadna blazer is that some visible edges are left raw, notably the collar and lapel, the front edges, the garment and sleeve hems.
