Introducing: The Essential Blouse

Written by Jessica Comingore Video by John Liwag

Today marks the launch of The Essential Blouse, a collaboration I worked on with Los Angeles based fashion designer and dear friend, Jill Yee. I met Jill many years back on a look book shoot for a mutual friend, and have since had the pleasure of witnessing her growing breadth of design work, honing her skills in fabric dyeing, draping and pattern making in the most unique ways. Jill is also an inspiring presence in the Los Angeles creative community, always mindful to connect like-minded and wonderful women who are exploring creativity in different ways throughout the city. She’s kind, thoughtful and inventive in all the ways that make for a wonderful collaborator on a project like this, and I hope this will only be the beginning of us teaming up creatively.

Now on to the piece! The Essential Blouse is just that — a staple for any woman’s closet that can be dressed up or down and worn through the seasons. The beauty of this top is in the details, from the alluring scooped back silhouette to the raw edge silk hems that only get better with time. The pre-washed fabric drapes beautifully on the body and is finished with elegant French seams and a surprise contrast seam inside the neckline. It’s perfect for pairing with a structured pair of shorts, or tucked loosely into high-waisted trousers. The design is a limited collaboration between myself and Jill, and our first edition includes a run of just 14 pieces, so make sure to get one while you can! The top is available for purchase in Jill’s store starting today.
