In September 2009, Sydney was enveloped by¬†a dust storm, classed as the worst the state of New South Wales had experienced in almost 70 years. The dust is believed to have originated from¬†far-western New South Wales¬†and north-east South Australia, carried towards the coast by strong, westerly winds. Blanketing the harbour city in¬†plumes of red dust, Sydney¬†was left resembling our neighbouring planet of Mars instead of its usual sparkling¬†self.
The 'Sydney Dust Storm Paperbark' Raw Silk Jacket is graciously inspired by this natural event. The¬†red ochre tones of silk are highlighted by the vertical paperbark weave, which gives the fabric a subtle sheen. It is a strong addition to any wardrobe.
