Since the Renaissance period, Italian art and design has been known for both its elegance and its playful sensibility. In the 1960s and ’70s, many Italian artists and designers found inspiration in expressionist and avant-garde painters like Paul Klee. This art historically inspired, hand-painted top draws the color palette of the 15th century into conversation with 20th-century abstraction. The result is a contemporary and easy-to-wear floral blouse in a rich olive green. With a cowl neck and an asymmetrical lace bottom, this piece will take you from day to night and back again.
