The one word we could utter when we saw this was SPECTACULAR, and we still find ourselves saying it each time we see it!
This style is truly trans-global -- those who appreciate cultural traditions in folkwear will recognize influences from Japan to southeast Asia, the Bosphorus to the Levant with a hint of the Andes as well, creating a fresh and exciting modern garment you can wear every day! It's both elegant AND casual, and fabulously unique. Like we said: SPECTACULAR!
While a total knock-out from any angle or distance, the beauty is in the details. It features a small stand-up or fold-down collar, extra-long sleeves with contrasting cuff bands, a button front and two patch pockets. The shape itself is heavenly, cut straight-ish towards the hip then flaring wildly to drape dreamily down the sides, accentuated by long slits. The hemline of the two front panels end in extra-long points -- a style we already know is flattering on so many figures!
And there's more (of course)... around the back there are more charming treats! Besides the lovely figure-flattering lines of the piecework, there's a center slit with its own looped button at the top, and a straight hemline, quite different than the front.
A decidedly contemporary look without diminishing its ethnic past. Once again: spectacular!
