Chapter 1: Infinity and Time

By Amber Symond

The idea of urban armour and clothing as protection is explored in this Common Hours box-sleeved robe crafted from the softest Italian leather. Embossed with motifs of plurality and fully hand-embroidered with messages relating to time, courage and the pursuit of dreams, this piece is designed to be multi-purpose, whether worn alone and belted as a leather dress, or as a coat over your outfit of choice.

This piece is finished with a plethora of decorative blooms and French knots. Simultaneously, a map of the Northern and Southern skies is meticulously hand-embroidered throughout the back, all of its constellations noted in a combination of black matte and metallic thread.
