The HIP CIRCLE SOFT OLIVE DUSTER is a lightweight and diaphanous coat with a kissing front (no overlay). The diagonal direction of the bias pleats creates a dramatic and asymmetric flair as the slightly A-line duster appears to float on the body as it moves.
The motif for HIP CIRCLE SOFT OLIVE DUSTER was inspired by my signature stitch-resist circular motif for T-shirts. Bias strips of silk were hand-appliqued to the duster prior to pleating and dyeing. The soft burnt edges of the bias pleats distort the pattern, suggesting a romantic and timeless design that moves seamlessly from elegant gatherings worn over a monotone silk ensemble to casual adventures worn with jeans and a T-shirt.
