Numbered, limited-edition reversible gown in Italian silk.

Reversible A-side

A riot of peonies shines in full bloom on the A-SIDE of the COMMON HOURS 'Crimson and Claret' reversible silk robe. This cacophony of flowers, featuring a photographic print by Derek Henderson, has been meticulously engineered to perfectly wrap around the wearer's body. It appears fragile and conventionally beautiful at first - yet amongst the subtle stitching within its petals, it hides embroidered messages of protest.

Reversible B-side

Reverse to the B-side for a gradient in shades of peach, blush and shocking pink, the perfect hiding place for a flash of dissent; personal talismans of a progressive punk spirit, scrawled lotus flowers, vicious Venus flytraps, and crossed-out words reveal a sense of debauchery. 'Heartbreakingly cool''Protest' and 'Let's Go' are hand-embroidered in tonal thread, small touches meant for the wearer only. Similarly, 'Music''Dance' and 'Love' are almost imperceptible on the lower hem - always 'Steadfast With Resolve'.
