Here's something for the weekend: a bell-shaped kind of flower. It's composed of two layers of silk - the upper is dark-ish indigo blue and the inner darkest purple from logwood. The fabric is densely smocked in blue with the threads criss-crossing in an intricate pattern. It has three stamens with vintage glass beads painted old gold, deliciously uneven like ancient grains of pollen. The same beads decorate the toggle that closes the long chain.

In the shop on Saturday.
