  • Details

    Wearing a skirt in the winter is one of the best tricks - you can layer as many warm things underneath as you want, you can move easily, it’s supremely comfortable, and it’s a nice change of pace from pants and sweaters on repeat. We took the Clyde pattern - easy, high-rise elastic waist and large, crescent-shaped side pockets - and adapted it into a full, voluminous skirt. The beauty here is in the structure and shape - it’s interesting without being unwearable. Practicality is key here - the pockets are large and perfect for phone, wallet, keys and there is plenty of movement to curl up on the floor with a book or hustle through the street to grab a cab.

    In this drapey, nubby raw silk the movement is really highlighted. Pair with a slim, cropped top for an hourglass silhouette or an oversized sweater for something a little more tomboy and modern.

    Raw Silk Broadcloth

    100% Silk

    Ultra soft and forgiving, wearable matte silk. Raw silk is nubby and textured, and feels a lot like cotton but softer and with more drape. Lighter-weight than our linen, but a bit more durable than our silk crepe. 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, strong, durable, insulating and cooling, 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 two classic, timeless colors - a warm, creamy eggshell, and soft, 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.
