'ode to layers' reversible asymmetrical top

With its complex construction and balanced bright-to-neutral color scheme, this top can be enjoyed in many different combinations and looks. Wear it by itself with a kind of bottom or over dresses, or layer it over other pieces for a different look every time. Also try it in reverse, as shown here, for a totally different look. It combines different hand-painted silks in mysterious half-shades, mixed with bold teal, which is a perfect color for all seasons and pairs beautifully with black, browns, grays and whites. The top has a pronounced A-shape, making it an easy top layer. Shown here in some pictures with a sheer black bottom layer. Product code: L6543

Hand wash cold, briefly, dryer OK, pre-shrunk.

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.
