New York-based designer Tyler McGillivary embodies the energy of spring and rebirth with a collection of tops styled to resemble orchid, pansy, anemones and azalea blooms. Hand painted petals are printed, laser cut and reassembled into flowers with a corset top backing.
In an exchange via email, McGillivary explained, “One of the first things I ever sewed was a flower top for myself and it was one of the reasons I started this brand. With everything blooming outside, it’s been hard for me to stay inside, but these shirts represent the freshness of spring flowers and for now at least, it’s nice to be able to bring a piece of the outdoors, indoors.
“I feel like once this quarantine is over, everyone will be in full color and utterly themselves. I for one, will be pulling out my most extravagant pieces to wear just because I’ll be able to again.”
Priced at $225 each, McGillivary’s made-to-order floral tops are now available on tylermcgillivary.com
