About the item:
"Fashion is the armor to survive everyday life." - Bill Cunningham
Introduced in Edition IX, this versatile dress is inspired by our muse, Georgia O'Keeffe, whose uniform-style of dressing and sublime domestic sensibilities left an aesthetic mark rivaling that of her artwork.
With this style, we take the belting technique of our best selling Knot Dress and marry it with the cocoon sleeves and high/low hem of our Muse Dress. The result is a dress that sits firmly in the if-you-could-only-pack-one-thing-this-would-be-it category. It's easy and voluminous body is instantly transformed into a fitted wear to work/baby shower/first date go-to with the twist of the belt. Learn more about all the ways to style this deceptively versatile style here.
The O'Keeffe Dress comes in a selection of premium fabrics that vary in both texture and fit. Shown here in Silk Noil. See more fabric options here.
