Vice and Virtue

Numbered limited-edition: 1 / 10
Extremely delicate and exclusive piece

A preface to his own work, an essay on art and musings by Oscar Wilde decorate this delicate COMMON HOURS robe in Japanese 'Fairy Feather' (the world's thinnest yarn-dyed silk). This piece is finished in a rich burnt metal gradient that goes from silver to a soft cream, and through to amber and rust. Purposefully selected words are lifted by meticulous hand-embroidery - thoughtful details you'll want to keep visible.
