  • Description

    This is the dress I dream about every year in the middle of summer when the heat is a tangible force in the air. The low, free armholes, deep-v back, and wide, trapeze panels hang away from the body the way you want everything to when your skin is damp, and the sun is high. This piece embodies movement and represents breeze. The slightest movement will billow the fabric in a captivating, delicious swish. The Harlow is meant for days spent puttering around the garden or for nights spent strolling the city. It transitions effortlessly right into fall - layer over a thin turtleneck for a jumper effect or under a chunky sweater (my favorite)!

    It has a simple but striking sleeveless cut with low, geometric armholes and billowing side panels. The deep-v back lets in a satisfying breath of air. The flattering high scoop neck and smartly cut shoulders pair flawlessly with the dramatic, trapeze shape. Wear totally alone for ultimate summer comfort, or layer over a wide-leg pant for a voluminous, spring look.

  • Material & Care

    Fabric: Silk Crepe

    Fabric Content: 100% Silk

    A washed silk crepe de chine that drapes and moves like liquid. It has a muted, ultra-soft feel with a barely-there sheen visible only with movement. This is an extremely high quality, medium-weight crepe, custom developed just for us - meant to be worn, not coddled. All of our silk is garment-washed, so it has a lustrous yet matte finish and is totally machine washable.

    Care: Machine washable. Wash on gentle cycle with cool water. Tumble dry on medium heat. Hems, necklines, and sleeves will wrinkle. Press with steam to shape, and they'll return to crisp edges.

    *Silk is a natural fiber and will fade and wear over time, which we love. If you prefer your garments to not show as much wear, hand wash, and do not tumble dry.

  • Sizing & Fit

    Intended to have an oversized, swingy, loose cut. It has low armholes, a deep-v back, and a trapeze shape that stands away from the body. Slimmer fitting in the shoulder with a loose and flowing fit through the body and hips. Hits just past the knee on most. Compared to the Tunic, the Dress is longer and has slightly less volume, so it doesn’t overwhelm.

Nice

The Harlow is a nice style. I have it in silk and linen. In linen I’d recommend to size down and in silk I’d recommend to stick to your true size. I find that ES’s sizes run a bit big. The Harlow in linen size small fits me perfect but in silk fits me a bit tight in the chest area. I bought it in moss and I really like the color. I was hoping to pair it with my silk Flos for my wedding but the look was too bulky and unflattering, so I had to wear a different thing. I guess I’ll wear it with no pants.

A loyal customer’s request to ES: please offer different lengths for your dresses. I find the Harlow short (it hits right on my knees, which I don’t like), it would be nice to have a midi or full length in some styles.

Beautiful dress

I love this dress and how it feels against the body. It can be casual or dressy. It will get a lot of wear! The 2X was surprisingly large, so I exchanged it for XL, which is perfect in fit.

Perfect

I purchased this dress in Navy silk. Usually I am 2x or size 18 US but bought the XL and it fits perfectly. I also have this in linen but think I may favour the silk. It hangs so beautifully. A beautiful cut all around. I find I can wear a bra without seeing it at the back (maybe a peek but fine). I bought silk Andy pants to wear with it and it is a gorgeous outfit.

Absolutely stunning

This might be the prettiest item of clothing I own. It is absolutely gorgeous, but still so wearable! I bought this to wear to weddings this summer, but have been wearing it in more casual settings too. The silk feels luxurious, but it doesn't feel like overkill to wear it outside of fancy settings. I also own a Georgia dress and Marlena dress, but this might be my favorite ES purchase yet.

Better than I imagined

I'm a XS according to the size chart, but sized down to XXS and I am very glad I did! It still has plenty of swoosh. I have worn this dress so many ways, even backwards with a t-shirt under. The rust color is so pretty!

Perfection

This dress is everything. I have worn it to work, to a gala and it was also perfect napping on the sofa post-Christmas lunch. Flowy, elegant, practical.

beautiful but not for skinny petites

The dress is a beautiful piece but pattern could be modified to fit smaller frames better. The arm holes are huge, the back V way too low and the front neckline was too high and tight on me. The length on me which was nice and I really liked how the dress moved while walking. Sadly I had to return it since getting it tailored would require to take the dress apart in at least three areas, the back and under each armpit, the seams there do seem to allow for tailoring but I think a tailor in my area would charge about $100 to do all that work and I'm not sure the dress would drape the same afterwards. Anyways, this dress is perfect for any pear shape and normal size ladies. I have to stick with ES tops and bottoms, btw I'm size S on the Florence pants and OSM on Georgia, XXS on Petra and Josephine.

Soooo good

Since this dress arrived I've worn it to work, worn it for a dressy party, worn it around the house all weekend, even worn it to bed! It's so versatile depending on what you pair it with, and incredibly comfortable and well made. I purchased this to try out the extended size offerings and have since ordered two other pieces as they roll out. THANK YOU for giving me an option such as yours!
