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.
