A dead-simple slip dress, the Ella is cut so that the double scoop neckline is flattering but still modest, it is high enough in the back to cover bra straps, and it hangs well on many different shapes and sizes. The slimmer but not-at-all-insubstantial straps give a delicate feel to the dress without sacrificing stability on the shoulder or the utilitarian feel of a wider strap. Slightly trapeze in shape, it floats deliciously around the body without overwhelming. Hitting around mid-calf, this piece is extremely elegant on its own with statement jewelry but also very well suited for layering. Under a sweater or blazer, this dress can be a real workhorse. The Ella reminds me of quintessential 90s style, interesting and simple at the same time.
Material & Care: Silk Crepe
100% Silk, GOTS and Oeko-Tex Standard 100 certified. Washed Silk Crepe that drapes and moves like liquid. Muted, ultra-soft feel with a barely-there sheen that comes alive with movement. This extremely high-quality silk was developed in a custom, substantial weight and is meant to be worn and loved.
Silk is a natural fiber with inherent breathability and strength. This weave has a finer, more consistent look than some of our other fabrics, but it still has occasional variations. Color will vary from dye lot to dye lot. While silk is a very strong fiber, it is still a natural material that can and will break down over time. To ensure your garment lasts as long as possible, do not wear tighter than intended and pay attention to tension or pressure on the seams.
Machine wash on gentle cycle with cold water and air dry or tumble dry on low heat. Hems, necklines, and sleeves will wrinkle. Press with steam to shape, and they'll return to crisp edges. Ensure that you wash gently and often (oils and bacteria sitting in material for extended periods of time cause premature breakdown, as does too frequent washing at high temperatures).
Silk is a natural fiber and is expected to wear and fade over time, which we love.
