Body-wrap dress with an asymmetrical hemline, round neckline, cut-out back detail and a semi-fitted bodice that fastens with a concealed zip. The dress features floral silk embroidery and spandex jersey sleeves. Care instructions: Dry clean only.
This collection is inspired by Hideyuki Oka's book 'How To Wrap Five Eggs - Traditional Japanese Packaging'. This book illustrates packaging as an art form; and design, a natural response to present simple objects beautifully. To translate packaging into wearable clothes, it started from wrapping, tying, covering and folding yardages of fabric around the body. This collection features individual pieces that can be worn in several different ways - wrapped, tied, draped, and so on. Separate collar flaps/ mock high-neck flaps with hidden zip detailing can be worn as accessories. Colours run freely with embroidery using nylon thread and silk pastels reminiscent of ink-wash painting. Blue and red jewel tones combine with Eastern inspired silhouettes with sportswear detailing and asymmetrical cuts.
