Limited edition of 20 pieces worldwide
The COMMON HOURS McDuff's Wife balloon sleeve dress is crafted from custom-designed gingham wool blend suiting milled in Italy by Bonotto. The style is complete with custom-designed, handmade resin buttons cast from a living man’s hands. The full-length silhouette features a boxy fit through the body, punctuated with tucks along the centre front and balanced in equal measure by deep splits at the side seams. Deep tucks are engineered through the back for lightweight volume, while tucked and gathered inset sleeves further emphasise the silhouette. The piece is anchored with the utmost attention to detail —from fine internal binds to French seam finishes, adjustable sleeve hem fastenings consisting of hand-embroidered thread loops, and discreet inseam pockets. The sleeves can be styled either on or off the arm, creating a cape effect. A wide matching waist tie completes the piece —cinch it in tight for a most startling hourglass consequence, fit for a Scottish fling. Fabric is fully recycled and REACH compliant.
