A WORD ABOUT INSPIRATION
And the contrasts are once again at play. A snug fit above the waist to show off your lovely hourglass figure (and also good for aerodynamics when riding your bike - should that be of greater concern) and a beautifully light and springy fabric nonchalantly arranged into a skirt below the waist. Monika has grasped all the extravagance and playfulness of a 1960s Italian summer and crafted it into a single dress slash jacket (depending on just how extravagantly inclined you are on the day). Should your choice be the jacket, a little tip from Monika – wear it with a pair of tight white trousers. Very stylish, if we do say so ourselves.
A WORD ABOUT FABRICS
A transparent fabric that seems to hold air within in, making it ultra-light and breathable. Almost foam-like, the fabric repels water, so you won’t mind those few droplets of water drifting through the sky of a summer’s evening.
LOOKING CLOSELY AT THE DETAILS
LINING - the whole piece is lined with an orange (or the relevant colour depending on which version you pick) band to create elegant and distinct contours that make the piece stand out on your body
FASTENING – the piece can be undone completely at the front, hence its potential use as a jacket
REFLECTIVE STRIP – you will discover a reflective strip all along the front fastening mechanism. When the jacket is undone, you can see the strip, otherwise it is hidden when the neckline is fastened with the use of snap fasteners
THREE QUARTER SLEEVES – will keep you comfortable when there’s a little breeze and will protect your bare skin from the wind while you’re on your bike
