10.-d'Artista

Artista

A/W 1993

Exploiting various elements of late 19th century fashion – tightly fitting collar and cuffs, highly refined decorative elements (lace, machine embroidery) and voluminous sleeves – the artista shirt is composed of three circles of fabric layered over one another, two layers of taffeta and an inner layer of organza. In order to anchor the enormous volumes of fabric and enable their modelling, the intermediate layer of taffeta is backed with a straight-cut shirt. The sleeves of the shirt are gathered in six pleats at the elbow and finished with a long cuff and jewel button.
