creating this print
Inspired by the ancient Japanese art of ikebana, the Olivia silk kimono features hand-painted flowers by our designer and founder of live orchids, peach anthuriums, exotic palms with sprigs of blossoming mimosa. Designed initially by hand drawing the flowers in pencil first then painting in acrylic paint, all our prints are painted in-house in our London studio by Jessica.
a note from our designer
I love the hand-painted burgundy contrast trim on our Olivia silk kimono - the bold stripe contrasting with the delicate hand-painted exotic flowers of the body of the print. I think it looks just as great worn over a simple white shirt and denim shorts as it does over swimwear by the pool.
