Mood Indigo

Mood Indigo by Lu Peters, 2003

Mood Indigo is a collaged vest made of Japanese printed Ikat cotton, with appliqu├ęs of fine wool suitings, embellished with beads, flat sequins, and irregular mother of pearl buttons. Areas of tucked fabric are contrasted with black and white “taxi” trim and are machine stitched with decorative stitches that echo the collage designs. The style of the vest suggests a Japanese influence with geometric shapes contrasting the undulating curves and irregular organic shapes.
