Meet Tunga. On this first illustration, Tunga is illustrating for us the top half (bustier) of the Purple flare trousers. This bustier is hand woven with lime green cotton cords. Tunga had a great pleasure to illustrate for us on the top three illustrations.
This garment is one of a 8 pieceColour Explosion 2010 collection, inspired by Japanese rope bondage.

As a stylist, I sometimes enjoy reflecting on previous collection pieces. I chose to take a closer look into this piece. I must admit, this is one of my favorite piece, not only because Tunga has carried it so beautifully in these three illustrations, but because of its style and vibrancy. A timeless piece that remains fashionable and stylish, depending on how you style it.
I had a specific shade of purple in mind. To get the exact colour, I decided to get a natural silk/cotton fabric and dye it to my taste. love it!
