A midi-length dress interpretation of our essential Petra Crop, but with a plunging V-neckline. I feel like I've been trying to design this dress for years—we've had the Marlena, the Elise, and everything in between. What I'm after is a strikingly simple, body-skimming-but-completely-comfortable silhouette that is just as at home strolling city streets to a small cafe on a sticky summer night as it is curled up at home on a rainy Saturday morning. Elegant but not overbearing, simple but not plain, tasteful but not boring.
I think we've gotten it right with the deep V-neck, slim fit in the chest with bust darts, and separation from the body at the waist. A generous hem provides foundational structure and balance. Carefully cut armholes hit right at the shoulder bone—revealing everything you want to show and nothing you don't. Hits around mid-calf for the perfect balance of drama and ease.
