'happily layered' distressed detailed vest or snap-down top

Another versatile modern piece, from the Mille-feuille collection, with amazing detailing and perfectly executed distressing throughout. This piece of art to wear can be worn as a vest or a top, it has a full front snap-down closure. The artist made it as a looser-fitting piece to make sure it works for a variety of sizes, but it can be made more fitted upon request for small or medium sizes, so it follows your body outline perfectly. The base is made out of fine breathable cotton, while the 'thousand sheets' added throughout are all different natural materials, including different cottons, linens, silks and more, each adding a different texture and feel to it. Easy care and washable, this top is very versatile, comfortable and great for traveling. It has been painstakingly hand painted for a perfectly contemporary distressed look in shades of gray and mauve over white. Product code: K1981

Hand wash cold, briefly, dryer ok, pre-shrunk. Press any of the 'leaves' down with iron if they curl up.

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.
