The Story

This dress features a fitted bodice and our Dual Box Pleat technique that is applied to achieve more texture and movement to the piece, giving this look a fit-and-flare silhouette that is easy to style. The micro Chinese Collar detail adds a touch of elegance to this Midi Dress.

For a flattering yet office-appropriate look, style it up with peep-toe heels or loafers for a modern take on a ‘50s swing dress vibe. For an off-duty appeal, complement the look with a chunky utilitarian sandals or leather slides.

The Print

As a child, they could not keep me from wells
And old pumps with buckets and windlasses.
I loved the dark drop, the trapped sky, the smells
Of waterweed, fungus and dank moss.
⁠— 1st stanza of “Personal Helicon” by Seamus Heaney

The motif on this print was inspired by the extremely sophisticated weaving techniques of Ikat and the beautiful Parang Klitik motifs, which symbolises wisdom, quiet strength and tenderness to the wearer.

The colours of the print were imagined and Afton’s interpretation from Seamus Heaney’s poem, “Personal Helicon”.
