This floral-print silk tunic is an art. Not only that it reminds me of those beautiful scarves crafted by Hermès, the silk is of the best quality from China. And as we all know, China is the cradle of silk. The blouse is from Harald Chyoung, one of my favorite Swiss designers (besides Laure Paschoud and Pascale Cornu).
There is something elegant and seductive about silk. It makes your imagination go wild…at least mine wonders thousand miles away when I touch silk of superior quality. Herein lies my obsession with Hermès scarves for they are so beautiful, one can’t help but collect them. My dream is to assemble a large collection of vintage scarves, frame them and hang them carefully around the house. I still have a long way to go but at least I have a vision.
Now, when my dad sees this look, he will ask if I forgot to put my pants on. In fact, I opted for a pant-less look on purpose. I wanted the floral-print silk tunic to stand out. It is too beautiful to be tucked in pants or covered by winter jacket. It is an art. And as such, it should be displayed for everyone to bath its beauty.
