  • Description

    The Bow Blouse is a timeless style that exudes understated glamour. This is a Kuwaii archive piece from our winter 2009 collection. The Bow Blouse has never felt more relevant than it is today, exuding a sense of power for the modern working woman. This style transitions effortlessly from workwear to eveningwear, and provides the perfect answer to an elevated occasionwear piece for those who like something a little different. There are so many styling options to this piece, and we can't wait for you to try them all.

    — Bow collar detail that can be worn in many different ways
    — Elegant bracelet length sleeves that finish below the elbow
    — Flange detailing on both shoulders
    — Slightly loose, boxy silhouette
    — Length finishes on low hip

    This piece showcases our print collaboration with Melbourne artist Kayleigh Heydon, who creates sculptures and paintings in response to her 'physical, social and political landscape'. Kayleigh's work draws inspiration from structural forms and light, and is often an echo of a time or space once visited. A documentation of her surroundings, she reflects on spaces that give her a sense of balance and strength, often using bold colours and soft shapes. Each piece we created in Kayleigh's print was refined and simplified – stripped of darts, seams and more – so that each piece creates a sense of balance and strength for the wearer.

  • Fabrication & Care

    Fabric Information
    100% Cotton Jacquard

    A jacquard weave is a decorative design that’s woven into the fabric on a jacquard loom, forming a slightly raised decorative area – in this case it’s subtle lines running across the base fabric, which we have then digitally printed, to give an additional textural element. This fabric is a medium weight, but still super drapey, and very flattering and comfortable over the body. The 100% natural fibre component of cotton means it breathes beautifully and can be worn both warm, layered, or trans-seasonally. This is a feature fabric and we love the incorporation of the jacquard weave on the base fabric with the beautiful print over. 

    Care Instructions

    — Gently hand wash in cold water using minimal detergent.
    — Do not bleach, tumble dry, wring, spin or soak.
    — Roll in towel to absorb excess water, reshape & dry flat without delay.
    — Cool iron.
    — This garment can be dry cleaned at a trusted, environmentally friendly dry cleaner
