Usually a garment with a “sweetheart” neckline uses two curves across the top of the bust in a design line that mimics the arcs found at the top of a heart shape. This garment from the Autumn-Winter 2014 collection from Maison Martin Margiela is less subtle and even more straight up in it’s amorous intentions, since the neckline is used as part of a bodice that is actually shaped as a bejewelled heart.
