  • Description

    Our Ella Slip Series is being discontinued. While it is a style we love, it’s not one we can sustainably produce in our full size range. Without a bust dart, gaping at the armhole occurs in larger sizes. This is why we’ve worked to flesh out the Petra and Polly Series, which do have bust darts, in various lengths, necklines, and fabrics. The Ella Slip Dress is now marked down 15% and will be available through the week of October 21 or until we reach our order capacity for that week.

    This is one of the pieces I am most excited about in this generation of the Signature Collection. A dead-simple slip dress, the Ella is cut perfectly so that the double scoop neckline is flattering but still modest, it is high enough in the back to cover bra straps, and it hangs well on many different shapes and sizes. The slimmer but not-at-all-insubstantial straps give a delicate feel to the dress without sacrificing stability on the shoulder or the utilitarian feel of a wider strap. Slightly trapeze in shape, it floats deliciously around the body without overwhelming. Hitting around mid-calf, this piece is extremely elegant on its own with statement jewelry but also very well suited for layering. Under a sweater or blazer, this dress can be a real workhorse. The Ella reminds me of 90s Calvin Klein - interesting and simple at the same time.

  • Material & Care

    Fabric: Silk Crepe

    Fiber Content: 100% Silk

    Description: 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 and medium-weight crepe that was 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, so 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.
