Kimono Inspired Couture

Yesterday, we posted our first ever piece from Annabelle Paris and offered a brief history on this all-but-forgotten gem of a design house. Annabelle is genius when it comes to quality silk garments. From lingerie, to evening wear, to resort wear, Annabelle creates leisurely ready-to-wear you'd swear was Haute Couture. In fact, during our conversation with the designer three days ago, she said a substantial component of her work centered around creating high-end, luxe pieces with the finest of fabrics for Arabian princesses! This kimono-inspired two-piece is the perfect example.

Fashioned from silk mousseline, the transportive floral print and extended sleeves borrow from traditional Asian culture. So if you're not able to skip over to The Great Wall this summer, this ensemble may just suffice!
