It was love at first sight when I saw this amazing seafoam mint green couture piece displayed in a mannequin at the atelier of designer extraordinnaire Jan Garcia. He crafted this top made from vintage satin fabric. I adore the fabric and the color because it reminds me of 50s couture fabrics used by Dior. From a distance it resembles a kite with its angular edges. I adore how the shoulder is skillfully draped into an amazing symmetrical folded flap. The sides billowing in an A-line shape while the back has a cropped cut out detail. Its lightness also makes it comfortable to layer on a button down shirt and be worn outdoors at night.

With such a lightweight modern piece top, I wanted to style it with an equally lightwieght and modern neckpiece. My choice: Ken Samudio's gold 'sea urchin' neckpiece. The color is perfect because it enhances the color of the mint green and vice versa. Deceptively designed, it resembles gold steel spikes but in fact its made of lightweight plastic and is totally harmless to the skin. It cant injure.

There was a strong 'sea' theme in the look vis a vis with the sky.
