In-Stock: Everyday Dress, Velvet in Black
“Clothes made from geometric shapes - squares, triangles, rectangles, and circles - have eminent advantages over conventional dress: …They would end our artificial categories (white tie, black tie, afternoon, etc.). They can fulfill any number of functions. We shall again become aware of the inherent beauty of uncut materials” - Bernard Rudofsky
Consider the Everyday style is the North Star of our collection, the style that started it all, that guides the direction, mood and energy of our entire line. Humble geometry done just so, it conforms to innumerable body types, flatters and comforts while lending confidence to the women inside. It's on our desert island wish list, and, after all of these years, is still our best seller. Each edition we revisit the cut, proportion, fabrications and natural dye formulas for this style, so check back with us to see what's new.
The velvet interpretation of our style invites a romantic texture that we encourage you to wear in the day as well as the evening. It's light weight yet supple pile is remarkably easy to travel with as it requires little to no touch-ups from suitcase to wearing.
