The crinoline skirt is a separate piece and starts at $695.00. Our coat on sex and the citywe work primarily with silk charmeuse, silk chiffon & rayon satin combining tie-dye & batik techniques with discharge & artisanal painting with simplicity & elegance of silhouette resulting in an instantly recognizable style. Having started as textile artists reinventing vintage lingerie for the downtown fashionistas all the while making one piece at a time by us, by hand, in house as we continue to do today. Our inspiration is drawn from the graceful lines of a japanese maple, the subtle shine of a crumbling shard of pyrite, the intricate pattern of a butterfly wing, the beauty of a ragged coral reef channeled into layers of texture and color. The result is a classical design that combines couture sensibility with bohemian spirit.
Our vibe is straight up 1930's glamour with a twist of 70's rock n roll, or as one client put it: jean harlow meets joan jett.
