    The return of a popular skirt from last year - the first skirt we ever released. I felt like skirts can quickly become too feminine, and I thought that the skirt I would design would be so utterly simple that it couldn't be hard to find elsewhere. However - I realized that I myself couldn't find what I was picturing. I worked to create the most pared down version of this garment - nothing less and nothing more than exactly what was needed. Midi in length to show some leg but also provide modest coverage, a generous hem to add a luxe weight and body to the fabric, just enough gathering to add fullness and movement at the hip but not become bulky at the waist.

    Wear this with your feet in the water of far away shores on a sticky summer evening, fabric lightly skimming salty, just-barely-sunburnt skin. Or in the city briskly walking to work paired with an easy tee and sneakers.

    Cut from a sturdy, incredibly durable linen that can be pressed to a neat, crisp finish, or left wrinkled after washing for a perfectly lived-in look. It will only soften and improve with age, a beautiful benefit of clothing meant for a life fully-lived.

  • Material & Care

    Midweight Linen

    100% Linen

    This is a medium weight, sturdy, structured, incredibly durable broadcloth linen that can be pressed to a neat, crisp finish, or left wrinkled after washing for a perfectly lived-in look. It has luxurious body and weight, and the strength to stand up to years of daily wear. It will only soften and improve with age, starting out with a coarser finish but with the ability to become more supple and flexible with wear. We love linen because of the natural strength and durability the fiber possesses, and because it is a very friendly fiber on the environment. It requires very little processing, is virtually lint-free, hypoallergenic, extremely comfortable in all seasons, insulating, and absorbent. It is also one of my favorite fabrics aesthetically - possessing such charm and texture in its variation, with a natural sheen that doesn't feel at all pretentious.

    Available in four classic colors - a warm "Ivory," a natural "Flax," a rich "Navy," and a deep "Black."

    Hand or machine wash on gentle cycle with cold water. Tumble dry low. Leave unpressed for a beautifully rumpled look (as pictured here), or press on medium heat with steam to remove wrinkles, straighten neckline, sleeves, and hem. Will press to a crisp, smooth finish.

    Intended to be worn high at the natural waist. Elastic waistband allows for some leeway between sizing, choose based on waist measurement. Loose and flowing fit through the hips and leg.

    The Midweight Linen and Cotton Poplin tend to stand away from the body, whereas the Linen Gauze feels a bit more fitted because of the texture.
