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.
