'grass is bluer' distressed modern vest

This versatile vest has a modern, artful look and feel, and features many of the signature techniques of the artist, from appliqué to distressing, handpainting and raw edging. The dark colors of black, gray and brown are a perfect background for the highlights in blue, teal and white, with just a bit of subdued yellow in the back. The vest features multiple buttons, for different fit options, as well as two-side option for buttoning up - on the right or on the left, for yet another different look. There is also an optional button top top, to make it close to a turtleneck style, for yet another look when buttoned up. A large pocket with an abstract grass-like appliqué is perfect for carrying the phone around. Shown here on three different heights (5'2", 5'5" and 5'8") and sizes. Perfect over short dresses, too!

Hand wash, dryer OK.

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.
