Io shirtdress is a loose shirtdress made of gabardine cotton that can be worn both as a dress and a cardigan. The sleeves are decorated with woven folklore fabric designed originally by ‘ergon Mykonos. The woven fabric is influenced by the colors, the art and the fashion of the Minoan society, a society that put women in the spotlight. The Minoan red-a main element of the palace-, the maximal jewelry of the Minoan Queen and the handcrafted belts gave the inspiration for this year’s unique outfits of Ergon Mykonos.
Made in Greece
After years of experimentation we design and produce luxurious qualitative woven textiles. We are the first to have combined different features and techniques in looming. The combination of the threads along with the knitting design and the final treatment is something that has never been done before. The fabrics are made of 100% Greek cotton and treated with fil coupé technique, a versatile technique used on a variety of fibers to give them a refined texture. After that the fabrics are sanforized, so as to prevent the normal dimensional alternation of warp and weft and finally they are bleached and collared to get their final touch.
