This pair was born to encapsulate summer. Like hues that streak the sky, the colors can match every aura. It is meant to be a quintessential part of your everyday wardrobe. The top is cut wide with winged sleeves, draping elegantly over the female body. The collar sits comfortably on your neck and has a button at the back for slipping in and out with ease. With a wide bordered edge, this top is the epitome of pleasure and practicality. The shorts are designed with an elastic waistband meant for lazy dressing, and can be worn high-waisted or low. It has the ability to reveal as much as conceal, based on your preference. We use a very specific Japanese technique called double-layering (which is like making two sets in one!). Though it is double the work, it renders the seams invisible, resulting in a beautifully crafted set that can be paired with some sneakers for a walk around the city. You can throw on a pair of sandals, a sun hat and your tote for a picnic with your friends. Or layer it with a printed kimono and sneakers to a museum tour. It even works well for an impromptu Zoom meeting.
The fabric is our Teaser Silk. A light silk georgette that is given a bio-thinning process to strip it down to its most basic self. Translucent in character, it’s fantastic to play with light and shadows like a photographer. It absorbs colors like a blotch, allowing us to deeply explore the nuances of the relationship between color and spirit.
Each piece is specially hand-dyed, receives an enzyme-wash, and then is cut and made by one tailor—just for you. Our clothes are a little bit complicated to care for like a lover. But, if you treat them well they will reward you in many ways.

Keep in mind that hand-dyeing is a human process, so there will be a 5-10% variation between what you see on the screen and what you receive.
