Description

The MICHIKO dress embodies summer elegance, perfect for leisurely days under the sun. Crafted from premium cotton, it boasts a relaxed silhouette ensuring comfort and breathability even on the warmest days. Delicate light pink floral prints adorn the fabric, reminiscent of fine delft china, adding a touch of refinement to your ensemble.

Noteworthy are the meticulously handcrafted details that elevate the MICHIKO dress to a true work of art. Honeycomb smocking adorns the front of the bodice, creating intricate diamond-shaped structures that offer both elasticity and insulation. Additionally, the sleeves feature a playful elbow-length design with scalloped edges, adding a charming touch to the overall look. At the hem and collar, the hand-cut scallop edge detail further enhances the dress's artisanal appeal.

Rooted in centuries-old German embroidery traditions, our artisans meticulously embroider each honeycomb pattern by hand, ensuring unparalleled craftsmanship in every stitch. Each knot tied with care represents our commitment to preserving artisanal heritage and infusing each garment with a sense of history and sophistication.

Step into the MICHIKO dress and experience the artistry and elegance that define HORROR VACUI garments.

HANDCRAFTED DETAILS

HAND-CUT SCALLOP EDGE

The scallop edge hem, a distinctive hallmark within Anna‘s collections, stands as a testament to HORROR VACUI’s unparalleled craftsmanship and artisanal excellence. Meticulously shaped by the skilled hands of our artisans, each scallop is a symphony of precision and dedication. This handcrafted technique transforms the ordinary into extraordinary, revealing a nuanced artistry that transcends the constraints of mass production.

In our atelier, each edge of the fabric is intricately cut with precision, employing scissors to gracefully shape the rounds. The process is elevated with a meticulous finishing touch—fine stitchings that trace the curves with exacting detail. This labor-intensive technique encapsulates the essence of handcrafted luxury, ensuring that each scallop becomes not just a design feature but a tangible masterpiece.

The result is not just a scallop edge; it is a tactile poetry of skill, and a luxurious signature that defines the distinct allure of HORROR VACUI garments.

HAND SMOCKED HONEYCOMB

Enter the realm of sartorial mastery with our honeycomb smocking technique—a needle-and-thread ballet that sculpts diamond-shaped structures. The needle gracefully weaves through the first dot, repeats its rhythm with the second, orchestrates their union, and then elegantly stitches over this harmonious duo. Honeycomb smocking endows the garment with elasticity while concurrently fostering warmth and insulation within the diminutive air pockets it forms.

Our skilled artisans embroider the honeycomb technique completely by hand, ensuring the meticulous craftsmanship that defines our garments.

Rooted in German embroidery traditions since the 16th century, honeycomb smocking is the oldest of its kind. We take pride in preserving this artisanal heritage, infusing each garment with a touch of history and sophistication. Knots, tied with unparalleled care at each juncture, encapsulate the essence of our dedication to artisanal excellence.
