The Basket Underwear

Regular price $760.00 AUD
Tax included. Shipping calculated at checkout.

In this printed underwear set, Robyn Mayo's 'Gardenia with Aboriginal Basket' is re-imagined through placement print, meticulously engineered so that the basket encircles the wearer's bottom half. At the same time, branches swing upwards towards the soft cup bra top. The set is finished with adjustable gathered straps, colour-matched garter clasps and satin ribbobs, giving the piece the appeal of a vintage find. A short, playful entry from the artist's book 'Vast' completes the piece, surrendiptiously written within the branches of the print. The final detail resides hidden in the bra clasp - a tiny insect leg, plated in gold, secures the bra together at the centre back.
