WEARABLE: MILENA SILVANO

These pieces by Italian-born designer Milena Silvano look so incredibly comfortable and easy to wear.  The mix-and-match patchwork is killing me, especially in that tank and top dress.

"Milena, who now lives and works in rural England, grows and forages dye plants and is actively building relationships with her fabric sources. This intimate relationship of sourcing materials, dyeing and constructing each garment allows Milena to develop a unique design and manufacturing process that is distinct to her sensibility. Milena’s ethos as a designer is inspired by Eco Feminism and she promotes crafts historically associated with women, as a means to inspire customers to appreciate the longevity of a hand made garment over the mass produced one."
