The "Peony" jacket is a kimono-cut outerwear.
The cut has been studied for a long time, starting from Elena Gradara's private collection of haori, in order to study a size that can adapt to different sizes and genders.
The fabric is a wool and silk satin, deriving from recovered vintage deadstock, with a structured look and a crisp hand.
A botanical print was created with Ailanthus and liquidambar leaves, eucalyptus bark on a pale lavender background, made with walnut hull and camping wood.
Any chromatic gradations of the color are to be attributed to the artisanal and natural manufacturing of the production process and are synonymous with the uniqueness of the product.
The model in the photo is 1.76 tall and wears a size S.
Washing and Care: Hand wash or machine wash in cold water with natural pH neutral detergents. Do not bleach. Avoid drying in direct sunlight.
