A Romeo Gigli cocoon coat, in velvet with ribbon-tied sleeves.

I’m thinking more about tied closures, and making everything open neck to hem either front, back, or around the sides.  Meeting with Ross made me so much more aware of the realities of the pieces, that and D’s fitting when he could barely get into his chiffon tank alive!

I love the tied sleeve on this Romeo Gigli velvet coat.  The cocoon shape is also very appealing, and a major inspiration.
