Maison Fauve - Kika Dress and Playsuit
About the Kika Dress and Playsuit/'Combi-short'
Kika is a magnificent 'Bustier' style dress or playsuit (combishort) design. It's a design masterpiece as the multi-piece bodice construction works like a 'corsetie', but it's made more comfortable with the use of elastic. The shaped neckline, and cool pockets are wonderful features. This is such a versatile dress or playsuit/jumpsuit. Make it with or without straps (wide enough to conceal a bra), wear it with heels for an event, or dress it down with chic casual shoes.
