The Flower Slip - Ivory

Regular price $3,300.00 AUD
Tax included. Shipping calculated at checkout.

1930s style bias cut slip dress in Italian silk with placement print. 

A freshly opened poppy celebrates new possibilities with surreal flair in this Common Hours garment: a gutsy dose of dissent within an otherwise classic shape. This silk gown features a loosely cowled neckline, a plunging V back and gently twisted straps. The fluted hemline allows for ample drape and movement, all the while ‘Forbidden Fruit’, an 1896 poem by Emily Dickinson, is discreetly scribbled amongst the belt ties. Fasten tightly to reveal a nipped-in waist and to accentuate the hourglass silhouette.
