  • Description

    This is the first skirt we ever released. I feel 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, so I worked to create the most pared down version of this garment - nothing less and nothing more than exactly what was needed. It has a midi length to show some leg but also to provide modest coverage, a generous hem to add luxe weight and body to the fabric, and just enough gathering to add fullness and movement at the hip but to not become bulky at the waist.

    Wear this at home with a soft wool sweater and socks, then swap out the socks for suede heels and head to dinner. You can also pair this with an easy tee and sneakers, and throw this on in the city for a brisk walk. 

    Signature Generation 4 Updates: We added a subtle A-line shape to the silhouette so that it has just a bit more swing and leg room and changed the hem from 4" to 3" so that it's consistent with our other hem styles. We also shortened the overall length by about an inch. Our sizing has also been updated with this launch, so please refer to our Sizing Guide and garment measurements to select your size!

  • Material & Care

    Fabric: Silk Crepe

    Fiber Content: 100% Silk

    Description: A washed silk crepe de chine that drapes and moves like liquid. 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. 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.
