pure fun 'flower petals' wearable art layering tunic or jacket

Just taking pictures of this jacket was fun - imaging wearing it! You would want to keep moving in it, it feels so alive on the body. Sitting would be great too - the 'petals' drape in a most interesting way. The melange of subdued colors also allows for a variety of colors to wear underneath - literally anything would look interesting, even very bright colors, as they will 'peak through' the various openings. Wear it with short dresses, long dresses, skinny pants, jeans, so many options. Many tops and tunics are available to match it beautifully, like those shown. Made out of Belgian linen for the body, it will not wrinkle easily, you really have to try hard for this kind of high-quality dense linen to wrinkle. The sleeves are made out of vintage hand-woven Japanese cotton organza, softened. Hand-painted with the signature distressed paint techniques, showing 'veins' throughout. The artist's signature look is completed with front button-down closure. Product code: B2761

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.
