The Fisherman and Mermaid Shirt
This unisex shirt was custom made for Dia and features an understated front with incredible embroidery on the back that reimagines Gustav Klimt's iconic painting, "The Kiss," but with a mermaid and fisherman instead. This beautiful motif was created using manually hand-guided embroidery by artisans in the Philippines. The smart yet soft poplin material is ideal for all seasons, and almost has a retro feel. The lovers are embellished with yellow and black geometrical shapes to tribute Klimt's style. This piece has an open spread collar and relaxed fit. The Fisherman and Mermaid Shirt is part of designer Kelvin Morales' "The Daydreaming" Capsule Collection. This collection is about Filipino Fishermen dreaming to be in the surrealist world of artworks by famed Austrian painter, Gustav Klimt. Crafted from poplin; this garment is designed to be unisex and is true to size with a relaxed fit — the female model is wearing a Size S (similar to Women's Size M), men should choose their regular size.
