BALEARES TIE TOP TIGERS EYE BANDHANI
The Baleares Gypsy Tie Top in Tiger’s Eye Tie Dye Bandhani is all kinds of pretty. Sexy but subtle, the tie front combines with bell sleeves in voluminous silk crepe to hark back to the seventies and beckon the twenties. Gathered at the wrist, the sleeves lengthen the arms and the ultralight, fluid drape creates a beautiful line that flatters your body and completes your look. Mix and match this gypsy top with our Baleares Tie Dye Skirt and Crop Top, or other pieces from the tie-dye inspired Spring collection.
The Baleares sisters (tie top, crop top and skirt) are true free spirits who came to Ibiza and stayed. Gathering for evenings under the stars and picnics on the beach, the sisters meet to swim every morning in the turquoise cove they’ve been visiting since they were young.
The Gypsy Baleares Tie Dye Top is the oldest sister, and the wildest. She can rein it in during the day, wearing her Baleares crop top, a simple black cami or a white tank under those gorgeous folds of fabric, but by night it’s a different story – a tiny lace bra or nothing at all.
She loves to dance barefoot on the beach, finding herself in the rhythm of the waves, sing karaoke in the enchanted gardens of an elegant bar, or twirl and stomp her way through a fiesta, the maze of old town streets alive with the smell of gunpowder and jasmine.
FABRIC + CARE
Bandhani, the first ever tie dye technique, originated in Rajasthan and Gujarat thousands of years ago. Bandhani – meaning “to bind or to tie” is the preserve of craftspeople who spend years perfecting their art. We work with traditional artisans in Jaipur (The Pink City), who learnt how to dye each piece by hand from their fathers and forefathers. We experimented with several tie dye designs – from tiny dots to large circles – before settling on this more minimal look.
This tie dye top is a rich golden brown with a silky lustre, resembling a tiger’s eye.
This top is also available in Sand Bandhani, Black Bandhani and Blue Moon Bandhani.
We made this tie dye top in silk crepe; light, lustrous and soft to the touch.
We recommend dry cleaning to give your top the very best care. Alternatively, hand wash it separately in cold water with a delicate detergent and hang dry.
Please avoid spraying perfume or deodorant on the top. Keep out of direct sunlight to keep the colour strong and preserve the natural life of the silk crepe.
