biba & blouse

ursula

some images of the new biba jacket coming soon to the shop as well as the flutter sleeve blouse in the anna sui print. the biba jacket will be made to order over the next several months.  it is a jacket than can be worn quite casually as you see, with a blouse over jeans (you can’t see my $5 leopard print slippers) or dressed up. the cost is $400, which i admit makes it an investment piece. the materials are obviously luxe, the (grey) silk velvet coming from italy and the lining a heavy silk charmeuse, as buttery as it gets.  it takes me several days to make one jacket … once you put it on there is an immediate feeling of wow, i don’t want to take this off.  it is a jacket to consider and a jacket you will likely covet your whole life.  the blouse!  i wanted to show what the new flutter sleeve style looks like on.  it is loose and comfortable and should sort of slip lightly over the body as you wear it. the shoulder is a little dropped and then the flutter sleeve, which has been steamed and “crushed”.  small bow in front. deep neckline?  very feminine i think.
