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.
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.
A short based on one of our favorite, oldest pant styles—the Florence. I am decidedly not a shorts person, but dressing comfortably for warm climates almost always requires some kind of alternative to pants and I wanted to tackle the challenge.
The silhouette I'm most drawn to is that of the 1930s and 1940s tap shorts with a narrow waist and wide, full thigh opening. I aimed to follow the rule of thirds, with the distance from natural waist to hem of the shorts taking up about one-third of total leg length. The hem hits right around mid-thigh, which feels comfortable in terms of coverage but still keeps most of your legs out in the open air. In super soft and drapey silk crepe, these feel like absolutely delicious pajama shorts that you can also totally wear in public.
The wide, full silhouette creates a beautiful shape that still feels modest and elegant. A generous inseam makes them practical and wearable (everybody knows that a one or two-inch inseam on shorts is a recipe for discomfort). They are nostalgic and quite modern at the same time.
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.
