As part of the HipSilver Generation and looking to solve a problem that many women my age suffer with, I designed The Butterfly Wrap. A few years ago it was extremely hard to find a poncho or serape that was light weight, sheer enough for summer weather and covered all those areas that we no longer want to expose to the public – like baggy arms. No matter how many weights I lifted or exercises I did or creams I used, my skin still hung there daring me to not expose it. So I started buying pashminas and stitching them up the back to make my own wraps. But they never hung perfectly.
Then a friend introduced me to a pattern maker who also creates patterns for Ralph Lauren. With his help I created a curved bottom without the fringe and points that sewing two pashminas together created and the Butterfly Wrap was born.
The Butterfly Wrap is intended to be worn with all those sleeveless dresses and blouses you love, don’t want to part with and no longer feel comfortable wearing.
To offer inspiration we have included as a special gift - the best camisole we have found to date. It has a lift bra and removable padding and is a good companion to the Butterfly Wrap which can be worn causally with jeans or pants. With a skirt the Wrap is a new cool approach to a summer business suit.
We hope it becomes a staple in your summer wardrobe.
