Goodness, I was sweating blood when making that yellow jacket (for the makers amongst us: I am sure you know exactly what I mean)…I love it to pieces, and it looks absolutely beautiful, but it was a stony way getting there. Anyhow, is this not how it always goes, with things that are very precious to us?

May I introduce you to the one and only (literally) peace silk jacket for spring. I created a special lining for it, and did some matching marble print in yellow for the sleeves and collar. But you will only see when actually holding it in your hands:). In order for it to keep the colour and shape when cleaning it, I had to pre-wash the fabric. Washing 6m of silk, by hand, is an interesting undertaking. But it was worth it…
