  • Description

    We're updating our WWC in early 2019! The Maxine Crop in Silk Crepe will be updated with new sizes for WWC Generation 2 in 2019! We'll remove it from the site, along with the rest of the WWC, at the end of January 2019, and you will see it return shortly after!

    An artfully engineered top, built for versatility and adaptability. Inspired by the thoughtful folding of origami, this blouse can be worn with the knot in the front or the back for a myriad of different looks: a low V-neck front or full coverage in front and a low V open back, all tied in a loose, relaxed knot or in a waist-cinching, pin-up silhouette. Candlelight bouncing off your collarbone at a midnight cafe, warm sunlight stinging your back on a lap around the farmers market - the feeling of intentionally exposed skin makes you all the more aware of each moment.

    One of our classic, iconic shapes - pairs with all of our high-waisted bottoms and layers well over silk dresses. Coverage of the shoulders and arms balances out the deep v. Plunging neckline adds tasteful drama to an all black elegant evening look, and a bit of energy to a monochromatic, bright weekend ensemble.

    Cut from a fluid, sand-washed silk crepe de chine that drapes and moves like liquid. Just subtly skimming the skin, it feels like butter on. Has a muted, ultra-soft finish, with a barely-there sheen visible only with movement. This is an extremely high quality and medium-weight crepe that's durable and opaque - meant to be worn, not coddled.

  • Material & Care

    Silk Crepe

    100% Silk

    A fluid, sand-washed silk crepe de chine that drapes and moves like liquid. Just subtly skimming the skin, it feels like butter on. Has a muted, ultra-soft finish, with a barely-there sheen visible only with movement. This is an extremely high quality, medium-weight crepe that's durable and opaque - 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 with no change in texture or shrinkage. We had this silk custom developed for us, and it's finally just right. It wears well and holds up to washing, but still has the airy quality that makes silk wonderful. Nature has already given the fiber so many of the properties humans need in clothing, without having to add synthetics or chemicals or alter its structure. It's highly functional, and at the same time indescribably beautiful. The drape and movement of silk on the body feels just as good as it looks.

    Available in four rich, elegant neutrals - a warm "Ivory," rich "Navy," earthy "Moss," and muted "Black."

    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 pristine, crisp edges.

  • Sizing & Fit

    Intended to have a slim fit. Adjustable waist ties provide flexibility in sizing and can be tied to fit snugly or loosely. Cap sleeve should be slim but not restricting. Cropped length hits at natural waist.

    Available in sizes XXS-XL. See our size chart to determine your size.

    The very first Maxine we ever made in 2013 was in Silk Crepe, and I’m so glad to have this guy back! The silk feels ultra slinky and romantic, and the cotton version feels pretty sturdy (provides nice lift!) and casual.
