  • Description

    The Parabola, aptly named by one of our brilliant sewers for the curved hip panels on each side, features slim, long sleeves and a high boat neck that are sleek and interesting. Parabola-shaped inset panels at the sides provide body, shape, and swing that move with you. This top wears as a nontraditional A-line, evolved from our archived Lara Series; the neck and sleeves are the same as the Lara you remember, but from the waist down, the design diverges with curiosity. I find this edit to add comfort and relief from restriction, and I love the suggestion of shape it provides, appearing dramatic and avant-garde.

    I love this billowy top paired with slim trousers or denim for a sleek look, but I'm also very into wide-leg pants to really accentuate the silhouette.

    Cut from our luscious, washed silk crepe de Chine that drapes and moves like liquid. Feels like butter with a muted, ultra-soft finish and a barely-there sheen visible only with motion. A touch of elegance, but also a hardworking fabric that can be washed and worn with ease.

    Love this style? It comes in other fabrics and colors and as a top! Shop the Parabola Series!

  • Material & Care

    Fabric: Silk Crepe

    Fiber Content: 100% Silk

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