A re-imagining of one of our oldest and most treasured styles—the Artist Dress. We changed the sleeves to a generous raglan style and added a bit of trapeze to the body. The seaming pattern allows us to work with the natural grain-line of the fabric to create an incredibly fluid, sweeping, and becoming garment, hemmed just past the hip at a universally comfortable length. It appears quite voluminous, but because of the way it's cut, doesn't overwhelm. The material hangs on the body in luscious folds, and the high boat neck hits right at the collarbone.
Roll the sleeves and tuck the front for a very casual, shirting vibe. I love this layered with more linen and belted for sufficient drama, or worn with your favorite jeans and sneakers for the ultimate hop-around-town situation. If you need to feel on top of the world, sensing this smock sweep behind me in the breeze as I walk through my day does the trick for me.
This signature ES style has evolved from our very first collection in 2013 with its high rise, wide leg, generous hem, and flat elastic waist. The silhouette is classic 1920s—inspired by the elegant, put-together-but still-a-little-sexy-and-quirky beach pajamas of the time. Shows a bit of ankle, has wonderful drape and movement, and accentuates the beautiful curve of a waist. The clean, no fuss cut strikes the perfect balance of statement and simplicity and looks just as good with a silk tank and heels as a cozy sweater and sneakers.
Our favorite, essential shift dress. The Georgia is one of the first styles I designed, and the pattern was drafted with universal fit in mind. The shoulder seam and sleeve without an armscye looks intentional on all shoulder breadths, the substantial cuff wings out and draws clean lines on any arm, and the just-above-the-knee length works for just about every body. Perfect on it's own, or my favorite way to wear it: over comfy, cropped pants.
This is the dress version of our Georgia Tee, which was influenced by effortless caftans from the '60s and '70s but with less material and more practicality in mind. I also drew on neat, crisp blouses from the '40s when women started wearing separates to work. Architectural drama and movement paired with structure and simplicity. A dress that can go anywhere and do just about anything.
It hits just above the knee, and the hem dips a bit longer in the back. You can lounge, explore a city, or sprint after a toddler in this dress. Serves as a dress, tunic, or coverup—it's up to you.

The shoulder seam and sleeve without an armscye look intentional on all shoulder breadths, the substantial cuff wings out and draws clean lines on any arm, and the cropped length follows the rule of thirds creating proportions that work on almost every body.
I was thinking about effortless caftans from the '60s and '70s crossed with the neat, crisp blouses from the '40s when women started wearing separates to work. The architectural drama and movement of a draped oversized top, paired with the structure and simplicity of a cropped blouse - the Georgia Tee.
Its boxy silhouette has a modern, utilitarian feeling while still remaining soft and fluid. The simple, slightly cropped, easy cut can be paired with just about anything. Plus, it looks great half tucked.
This is the tunic I dream about every year in the middle of summer when the heat is a tangible force in the air. The low, free armholes, deep-v back, and wide, trapeze panels hang away from your body the way you want everything to when your skin is damp, and the sun is high. This piece embodies movement and represents breeze. The slightest movement will billow the fabric in a captivating, delicious swish. The Harlow is meant for days spent puttering around the garden or for nights spent strolling the city. It also transitions effortlessly right into fall—layer over a thin turtleneck for a jumper effect or under a chunky sweater (my favorite)!
It has a simple but striking, sleeveless cut with low, geometric armholes and billowing side panels. Its deep-v back lets air in for ultimate comfort. The flattering, high-scoop neck and smartly-cut shoulders pair flawlessly with the dramatic, trapeze shape. It hits around mid-thigh providing coverage when you want it but also means you can jaunt around sans pants at the beach or pool.
The Linn Tee is one of our simplest pieces, and sometimes, simple is best. The structural cut allows the fabric to do the heavy lifting, and the beautiful folds and trapeze swing look right at home with pin-straight pants at a gallery opening or over a gauzy dress on a sticky weekend afternoon. The Linn is a style that keeps on surprising—catching different views of it in the mirror, trying it with different outfits, it will continue to strike you in new ways. It's got major drama without being overbearing.
The Parabola, 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 sides provide body, shape, and swing that move with you. This top wears as a nontraditional A-line. 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 it with wide-leg pants to really accentuate the silhouette.
The new twin sister to our essential Petra Crop—everything you love about the Petra, but with a plunging V-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 deep V-neck, yet slim fit in the chest with bust darts.
This style stands away from the body at the waist, 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 right at the natural waist and pairs perfectly with high-rise pants or skirts, and layers well over slip dresses.
A longer hip-length tank version of our essential Petra Crop, but with a plunging V-neckline. A simple, slightly A-line tank that completes so many outfits you didn't even know you wanted to wear. Perfect for a day at work or a weekend away. Layer under jackets and sweaters, or wear bare and get some sun on your shoulders. I love this worn with an old pair of jeans, or a simple sleek trouser like the Andy in Midweight Linen. Featuring a deep V-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—shows everything you want to show and nothing you don't. Hits at the hip for a lengthening effect that provides coverage if you want it, or tucks easily to highlight the waist if you want a different silhouette.

A smooth Silk Crepe that drapes and moves like liquid. This fabric is captivatingly lustrous when washed on cold or dry cleaned. When washed on hot, as we typically have done for our garments, it has a muted, ultra-soft feel with a barely-there sheen visible only with movement. This extremely high-quality silk was developed at a custom, medium weight and wide 55" width just for us. Meant to be worn, not coddled.
Suitable for bottoms, tops, dresses, and home decor projects.
Silk is a natural fiber and while this weave is a finer, more consistent look than some of our other fabrics, it still has occasional variations. Color will vary from dye lot to dye lot—if you need consistent color for several projects, order the yardage all at once so that we can give you one continuous cut from the same bolt.
Silk is a strong fiber, but it's still a natural material that can and will break down over time. To ensure your garment lasts as long as possible, do not use this fabric for tight or fitted garments where there will be tension or pressure on seams. Consider doubling up the material for high friction areas, and take care to wash and clean the fabric gently and often.
