blue, black and watermelon vest or mini-dress

From the Mosaics Collection, this vest features top to bottom appliqué that produces a mosaic effect, with strips of silk in a gorgeous watermelon color fading to black on the bottom. The silk self-lining is painted in an ombre style, revealing a beautiful design on the inside as well, and can be worn on the reverse if desired. It has a pleasant medium weight and can be worn throughout the year as a dress if an optional full closure is put in, or as a vest over tanks, long sleeve tops and dresses - many options available. Black as base color will make it easy for you to match it to bottoms. Product code: K2455

Hand wash.

General cleaning instructions for all garments (also see care tag inside the clothing) are as follows:

  • Any garment can be dry-cleaned with the gentle/delicates method.
  • Items marked 'hand wash' can be washed by hand (not in the gentle or hand-wash machine cycle), separately, as briefly as possible, with minimal amount of mild detergent, particularly for hand-painted items. Follow with the spin cycle of the washing machine, and finish in medium heat dryer, unless hang-drying is recommended, which is the case for most knits.
  • Hand-pressing is recommended on most items 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.
