Two girls, lots of travel and editorial backgrounds. When Lisa Fine partnered with Carolina Irving to create Irving & Fine, they took the blouse world by storm, creating something the market lacked. Fun, bright, Indian-inspired blouses with touches of embroidery and a dramatic cut, they were perfect for parties and running around town. They recently introduced dressy jackets in materials like velvet and linen, so you can always have them rotating in your wardrobe. The gals also have their own eponymous fabric lines chronicled on SB in the past.

Silk Patmos 100% light ramie blouse with bands of lace on the sleeves and at neckline. For additional detail, Jali like lace insets replace seams. Shown with a belt sold separately.

The 100% Natural Linen Lamu coat has hand embroidered black raffia and wooden beads. It is paired with hand-blown venetian glass rings by Legge and Braine, gold bracelets by Bungalow 8, Mumbai Wooden bangles with inlaid silver and turquoise by Jaisalmer Arts.

Samarkand Tunics of 100% linen in indigo with creme raffia and red with black raffia has hand embroidered raffia and wooden beads.

They hold trunk shows around the country and team up with Indigare Souk, so watch that space for their next pop up sale...

I have admired these tunics since I first saw them and am wondering how someone like me, living in the middle of nowhere can purchase from Irving and Fine.
Thanks for another great post,
