  • Details

    A short, shell version of our Josephine Vented Tunic. This piece is an amalgamation of a few difference sources of inspiration. The Josephine was a piece I designed very early on - named after a favorite Wallflowers song, it was a simple cap sleeve tunic that worked with anything. For this collection, I improved the fit of the sleeves and neck, and added volume at the back with a box pleat. The side slits were inspired by Colette, one of our seamstresses, and a dramatic, full-length, sheer tunic with slits she made for herself years ago. The side vents add the perfect amount of movement and drama to this piece, and allow for excellent air flow.

    Pair with matching shorts or trousers or with a great pair of jeans. Floaty and simple, the architectural silhouette still feels super wearable and easy in this length. This piece is one of my favorite marriages of functionality and beautiful form.

    Luxurious matte silk crepe can be worn casually with your favorite sneakers or dressed up for evening.

  • 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 theyÕll return to pristine, crisp edges.

    The cropped, blouse version of the Josephine Vented Tunic - sizing is identical, the only difference is in length. If you purchased a Josephine tunic way back then, the sizing is very similar but this piece has a bit more volume (and of course those side slits).
