Limited edition of 40 pieces worldwide

Balloon sleeve shirt dress crafted from Italian chintzed cotton. The lightweight, recycled and biodegradable fabric displays a glazed finish that adds a stiff, luxurious handle. The piece 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 by deep splits at the side seam. Engineered tucks add volume through the back, while tucked and gathered inset sleeves further emphasise the point. The piece is anchored with attention to detail in finishings: fine internal binds, French seams, adjustable sleeve hem fastenings consisting of hand-embroidered thread loops and discreet inseam pockets. The sleeves can be styled on and off the arm, creating a cape effect. A wide matching waist tie completes the piece.
