The shape of the top is copied and further developed from a vintage Lindex top.
We believe that copying earlier masters or contemporary competitors is an excellent way to learn and find one’s own artistic voice. Such works may become the foundation for development, deconstruction, and reconstruction. See further what Yamamoto has to say on this matter at the bottom of this page.
In its current state, cut from a single piece of fabric the top is constructed from a single piece of silk fabric being draped over the shoulder in the same manner as described in chapter 2.2 of Kinetic Garment Construction. This principal of approaching the body with the fabric dates thousands years back and creates a flattering drape.
