I Would Not Kick This Out Of My Closet- Akris Wedding Tower Blouse

It would be an understatement to say that I lust for this beautiful Akris Wedding Tower blouse...

Link(Photos from blog.bergdorfgoodman.com)
Not only do I have a thing for trees and love the deep moody autumnal colors but the details of the collar and the horizontal pleat at the ribs are beautifully constructed! (There is also a lovely shift dress that has more of the actual Wedding Tower on it.)

The photograph print itself, Wedding Tower on Mathildenhohe ...

is by Joseph Maria Olbrich, who was also the the architect of the actual building.
For the rest of the collection, Akris designer, Albert Kriemler, pulled most colors from this photograph. (The textures and modern shapes of his jackets amaze me!)
