A re-imagining of one of our oldest and most treasured styles—the Artist Dress. We changed the sleeves on this newer generation from grown-on dolmans to a generous raglan style, added a bit of trapeze to the body, and lengthened the hem to hit well past the knee. The seaming pattern allows us to work with the natural grain-line of the fabric to create an incredibly fluid, sweeping, and becoming garment. It appears quite voluminous, but because of the way it's cut, doesn't overwhelm. The material hangs on the body in luscious folds, and the high boat neck hits right at the collarbone. Roll the sleeves and pair with bare legs for a very casual, summertime look. I also love this style layered over a slip dress or silk trousers and belted for sufficient drama, or worn over pencil-straight trousers for a swankier situation. If you need to feel on top of the world, sensing this dress sweep behind me in the breeze as I walk through my day does the trick for me.
Cut from our luscious, washed silk crepe de Chine that drapes and moves like liquid. Feels like butter with a muted, ultra-soft finish and a barely-there sheen visible only with motion. A touch of elegance, but also a hardworking fabric that can be washed and worn with ease.
The Artist comes in several different fabrics and lengths! See the full series here.
