This tunic sits in that perfect halfway place between ‘favorite T’ and everyday dress; its hem is generous enough to be worn for coverage over another short piece, but it can likewise be layered over a pair of slim pants for a more polished look.
The Blain tunic in Black is made of a sumptuous English silk jacquard, whose subtle textural pattern makes this piece feel especially refined. Our silk comes from luxury British textile merchants Holland & Sherry, whose Golden Square cloth house was founded in 1836. To this day, they continue to supply prestigious tailors with the finest quality natural textiles.
This piece is named for the late artist J.B. (James Blain) Blunk, known for his large sculptural installations and ceramics. The original vintage garment was made from a wood-pulp fiber, a material that recalls redwood, the medium favored by the California-based sculptor.
