Crafted from four panels of the finest silk duchess, this versatile piece crosses the line between dress or outerwear, depending on the wearer’s mood. As an abstract, magnified flower print radiates toward the hemline, so does all-over embroidery in tonal threads, highlighting fine details from the image itself. The mirrored placement print is designed for a trompe-l’oeil effect, creating the illusion of colours cradling the body while suspended petals fall just off the shoulder.
In a playful game of proportion and dissent, the dramatic fluted sleeves are attached to the full skirt - open your arms wide for a semi-circle effect and to add a flash of abbreviated hemline. The piece is complete with a matching belt to adjust the silhouette. A perfect display of collaboration and craftsmanship, the garment showcases purposefully commissioned artwork, where photographs by Georges Antoni are reimagined and manipulated by the C.H. team, showcasing the hand-embroidery skill of Chanakya artisans and the colour work of print specialists in Como, Italy.
