Description

Balloon sleeve dress crafted from lightweight cotton milled in Italy. The fabric is recycled, biodegradable and chintzed, creating a glazed finish that adds a stiff, luxurious handle. 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 seam. 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 attention to detail in finishings, fine internal binds and French seam finishes, adjustable sleeve hem fastenings consisting of hand-embroidered thread loops, handmade glass buttons, 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.
