"a painted dream" detailed silk jacket

The dreamy colors of this artful jacket from the Mille-feuille collection are deep and mysterious, the half-tones adding to each other harmoniously over the half-indigo, half-teal base. The jacket is lightweight, made out of silk for the base and mostly silk for the applique of 'leaves'. Each piece of the applique has been individually hand-painted and assembled as a whole over the jacket with meticulous care of overlap and proximity of different colors and textures. You will discover lots of subtle details, like little triangle tips of the collar, for instance. The colors are a great match to a variety of tops and bottoms, with just a few options shown, many pieces on the website with work, if you are not sure, we are always happy to advise.

All garments arrive to you freshly cleaned, unlike regular store-bought items, and are ready to wear.

Dry-cleaning is ok on most items but only if gentle methods are used and the cleaners are familiar with cleaning hand-painted delicate fabrics.

To freshen up any item that doesn’t need deep cleaning simply mist it with a water spray and put in the dryer on medium heat for about 15 min.

All garments can be hand washed. Wash each item separately, cold water only, minimal amount of detergent, and as briefly as possible, no soaking. The wash can be followed by a spin in the washer and dried on medium heat until dry. Knits should be hung-dried and when dry, finished in the dryer for a few minutes to soften.

Hand-pressing may be necessary after the wash and dry to straighten out the seams and edges which tend to pucker or curl on natural fabrics.

Some hand-dyed items may leak a bit of color during the washing, that is normal and will not affect the item. Using liquid softener during the wash will minimize any color leaking.

For more tips and details please refer to the cleaning instructions card included with your package.
