13.-Libellula

Libellula

A/W 1995

Lightness, simplicity and transparency are the concepts inspiring the libellula shirt, a garment whose sleeves and 16th century-style collar are undoubtedly designed to be the main points of interest. The main body of the shirt is a transparent leotard in white stretch lace whose neckline is cut straight above the bust. The cuffless funnel-shaped sleeves, decorated with a longitudinal slit at the elbow, and the shawl collar, whose folds drop down to the waist, are attached to the main body of the shirt. The surface of the collar is crisscrossed with twenty-one hand-stitched horizontal pleats which, in addition to contributing to the decorative impact of the shirt, also perform a structural function by strengthening the fabric of the back of the collar.
