  • Description

    The Petra Crop is one of our earliest styles. A simple, classic crop top meant for summertime with an elegant boat neckline. Imagine weekend getaways to the coast or the mountains. Wear this paired with the matching Bel Skirt for sandy afternoon walks or over the classic Andy Trouser to dinner and drinks. Simple, easy silhouette. Featuring a high boat neck, yet slim fit in the chest with bust darts. This style stands away from the body at the waist, which is edged with a generous hem providing foundational structure and balance. Carefully cut armholes hit right at the shoulder bone—revealing everything you want to show and nothing you don't. Its cropped length hits at the natural waist and pairs perfectly with high-rise pants and skirts, and layers well over slip dresses.

    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 many different fabrics, various lengths, and two different necklines! Check out our full Petra and Polly series here.

  • 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.

Gorgeous color and movement; also, static

This piece is stunning, its movement fluid and sensual, its color a feast for the eyes. I wanted to wear it to a NYE symphony performance, but I can't seem to get a handle on winter static. That said, I think it will be a great spring/summer piece, and I look forward to wearing it to all sorts of events!

classic, beautiful

absolutely perfect with matching silk andy trousers. I wear the pair for travel, for work, for walking around town, for lounging, for dinner parties, and everything in between, and feel simultaneously comfy and chic. Have hand washed it multiple times and it's held up well. The midweight linen Petra in the same size was a bit too boxy for me, but the silk drapes perfectly.

love love the ease of ES silk

This is my second purchase of a shirt in silk crepe from ES, and I love how easy it is to care for a garment that is so luxurious to wear. I have a small bust (33”) but rather wide shoulders, but opted for the size small with no complaints so far. I was worried that the sleeves would cut too close to my underarms and be uncomfortable, but I was pleasantly surprised that while the sleeves do fit close to the body, they do not rub or irritate my arms.
