detailed knit hand-painted long vest in teal and fire

The vibrant colors and detailing of this vest are pure art. From mixed fabrics - the body is made out of glowing knit silk, with crinkled silk chiffon inserts and hand-pleated front panel - to small details like hand-stitching, chiffon overlay, embroidery and more - it combines all the artist's favorite techniques, topped by rich hand-coloring and flattering A-line construction. Currently the vest has one front button closure, but on request can be turned into a fully-closed dress-like piece. Many long-sleeve and sleeveless tops are available to be worn under. Product code: L0178

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.
