The Uffici galleries in Florence house some of the most beautiful paintings I know – and that I love. The painting which gave me the idea for this series, and this shirt dress, ironically I do not know the painter…but its a beautiful image of golden embroidery on a black garment of some sort – I only took a picture of the detail and am frustrated ….. must go back to Florence asap and sort this out as I respect provenance very highly. This series of clothes and scarves, ‘Uffici’, is my attempt to interpret the embroidery using simple drawing and loose mark making in an attempt to recreate the delicacy, in a contemporary way.
This is a transparent silk georgette shirt dress in black with lime, orange, mucky pink and lemon – to wear anytime and anywhere, with lots of options from jeans to posh pants and camisoles..
