Never realized this dress was one-shouldered, or had such an amazing sleeve (though I still want to see more views of it!) - also, isn't that lipstick perfect?
A tank version of the dress (perhaps what is under the jacket? Though the one-shoulder version wasn't on the runway) is sold for $2,885. The outer fabric and lining are both silk. A shorter version sells for $2,445. A single fold in the front of the two tank versions "cuts" the floral and adds an interesting vertical interruption; a pleat details the back.
|The colors are beyond amazing - saturated, bright, a little surreal. Placements of photorealistic flowers are truly interesting - notice how some flowers are "half" another, or stop down the middle and become a different color.|

Can you tell I'm obsessed? Now, why do I think this dress is so great, you may ask? Because it is impeccable in every aspect - the silhouette is minimal, the length is dramatic and new, each iteration is as exciting as the next (sleeves, no sleeves, long, short), and the fabric really seals the deal. Nothing is more precious than a designer's custom print - and nothing is more meant to fill a blank canvas of a simple gown than one like this.
If anyone would like to buy me this dress, it would be greatly appreciated. Or even the envelope clutch. Haha but who am I kidding - way beyond anyone's price range. I am on the hunt already for a fabric somewhat like this - doubtful I'll find one perfect enough, but I do know of a website that allows you to print your own ... good use for those swatches, huh?
