Uffici – painted silk matka short shawl collar jacket Carole Waller CW7.60
This jacket is a wonderful soft heavyweight matte silk in greys and blue, gold, vanilla and pink. It is inspired by paintings in the Uffici Gallery in Florence in which gold embroidery is meticulously rendered in oil paint. My take on florals is a little more liberal (sloppy). I drew from the painting and abstracted elements of the embroidery to incorporate into the theme of this Florentine collection.IT is my most popular jacket shape – the shawl collar can be worn up or down, there are no buttons, its very elegant whilst unstructured and flattering. Seen also with small silk georgette scarf CW7.61 £95.
