Description
Long sleeve top with long body, in heat-set pleated polyster with short funnel neckline. the centre front panel and the proper right sleeve are a dark grey/brown, printed with a photographic image of a maked male holding a life size black and white cut-out form of a classical female sculpture figure upside-down. The sculpture cut-out obscures the face and most of the body of he naked male. the front and back surface of the proper right sleeve is printed with an enlarged photographic image of gilt frame. Each sleeve is constructed with a triangular gusset at the underarm, with pleats at a 45 degree angle to those on the sleeve, separated by a permanent diagonal fold line. The back panel and reverse of the proper left sleeve is a plain pleated section in bright blue.
