rather than literal references, romeo gigli instead worked to "recreate the emotion produced by a work of art." gigli blended together a pre-raphaelite pathos with indian, turkish, persian elements found during his travels.

he was fascinated by the roman and byzantine and as a child, his parents had led him to see pompeii and the design of a villa remained imprinted on his conscience. "his essential lines had communicated a serenity and a deep inner elegance for so many centuries", he loved to say, and he wanted to put "the same lasting purity" in the lines of his clothes. 

available is a romeo gigli circa 1989 / 1990 black cotton off shoulder top/dress. there is an exaggerated amount of fabric that wraps around the shoulders, that can be arranged for effect, and the top hangs from a single asymmetric shoulder strap, exposing the shoulders and making this volumious top somehow still very chic and feminine. the top has that pre-raphaelite feel but is also incredibly modern, which gigli does so well.
