Just posted on site: Milano Jean Tote.
Stilettos and rock n’ roll meet schoolgirl book bag. The combination of thick tapestry-like fabric and slick 80’s melted rubber jean material sets this tote apart from the rest. Pleated sides add variegated pink, ochre, and blue floral touches. Interior fabric is a vibrant blue and white circular print.
This jean fabric is seriously a once-in-a-lifetime find… I snatched it up at the Soğutluçeşme Pazar in Istanbul. There were only two meters of it and I had to have it. It is rather a problem-child in any sewing machine, though, so I imagine my usage of it will be limited to these one-of-a-kind creations.
Also added to the site… sumptuous Sultaness.
Sultaness is a visual feast with sizzling magenta, cream and pink. Wrapped in yellow-gold stitched magenta overlay, lined with rich and warm satiny cream and brown fabric, and all tied up with shiny pink cord reminiscent of drawing rooms draped in thick velvet curtains. Red and pink beads cascade from tassel and interior pocket stashes small valuables. Sultaness has a soft and flexible frame, curvy side tucks, and reinforced stitching.
