Trench coats, wear them belted to highlight your lovely womanly shape or leave them open, like a film noir detective. That’s what makes them great, they are adaptable. This trench is a one of a kind, I only have the tiniest scraps of fabric left. It’s an amazing kimono silk, an ikat technique that the Japanese call meisen. First they dye the pattern on the threads, then they weave it,…. wild, yes?
When the threads are rewoven, the edges are slightly out of alignment and the result is a design with soft edges.
I love it!
