The Parabola Dress, named 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 hips provide body, shape, and swing that move with you. This dress wears as a nontraditional A-line. The curves provide drama and movement without widening the whole body. The swing around the hips suggests the classic, evocative S-curve that is so often found in nature, but the piece still remains oversized and avant-garde. An implication of hourglass without exploitation of the body underneath.
This dress looks perfectly at home over bare legs and feet, but also layers very well over pants for a distinct art professor vibe.
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.
