The traditional, soft, hand-made jumper which Lund wears repeatedly contrasted wonderfully with her focused-to-the-point-of-obsession work ethic. It spoke of a woman who is practical and ready for anything, yet also someone who doesn't need to power dress, who can assert herself in other ways and isn't trying to prove anything. The humble woolen jumper strikes again.
