Calice

A/W 1982

Part of a collection inspired by the idea of swordfighting and duels, this white shirt relates the sinuous movements of silk gazar to the volutes described by the foils of duelling swordsmen. The bodice of the shirt is reminiscent of the flûte of a calla lily, its waist being emphasized by a deep band of hand-stitched satin, buttoned on the left hand side and crossed at the front, and its main body being composed of two layers of fabric: a snugly fitting inner layer fastened at the front with a press stud and an outer layer whose elegant folds are reminiscent of the petals of a lily.
