Zero


"Simplicity is the ultimate sophistication." Leonardo da Vinci



Simplicity is an intention that I seek in clothing. 





Peaceful, carefully made garments that are less about fashion and more about clean lines, honest design and fine cloth. 

And so I made the Zero Top. Straight lined square shaped and airy. Inspired by Japanese and Swedish design. Made with a fine soft white cotton lawn, featuring a reinforced bateau neckline and red stitching at the hem. 




The bateau neckline is reinforced to give a more structured line that will be more resilient to sagging naturally caused by machine washing.




A mere glimpse of colour in the hem.



Quiet but attentive details and a shape that will allow for free movement. Airy in the summer and layer-able for the winter.

I have been working on this top for a while now, obsessing about each and every stitch and detail......and am now really pleased to be able to offer a couple in my | SHOP |.

Thank you so very much to everyone who has supported me in this new endeavour, your thoughts, suggestions and encouragement has been wonderful.

  1. Ahem *cough* someone is a stunner!! You look marvellous. Love the top, it is simple, but it is very beautiful. I love the way it fits and hangs, gorgeous. You can wear it with anything & I like that best :)) x

  2. You have done such a good job and created a piece that is perfect for you yet very desirable to others. But it's sold out already, good job! I know Hollie will love it, I'll be sending her a link later. And you planning on making more? I know I said it yesterday but I really love the fit of those jeans.

  4. I'm thrilled that you've begun to experiment with selling the clothes you make - as you know I'm a big fan of the Fushigi Shop (my beloved brush roll just came home from a trip to Rome) and all of your beautiful creations, but clothes... clothes are my passion and a good white blouse is hard to find. Alas my budget is non-existent at the moment or I would be begging you to make more :)
    xox,
    Cee
