18.-Piquaresque

Picaresque

A/W 2001

The confluence of a range of different ideas – tribal bracelets, the corset, the 1950s cowl collar, 18th century sleeves – the picaresque shirt remains partially open at the front with a deep cowl collar attached only to the back of the yoke. The waist is highlighted by a boned bodice held together by tapes passing through metal rings and zips, while the funnel-shaped sleeves are cut off at different lengths: the left sleeve just reaching the wrist; the right sleeve reaching over the hand. Three black leather bracelets, positioned on the forearm and above the elbow enable the wearer to increase or decrease the volume of the sleeves which are finished with a sunray pleated cotton tulle trim.
