The Story

Romantic and deliberately voluminous, turn heads with our Parachute Sleeves Billowing Mini Dress. This is not solely about volume, but great thought has been put into understanding the female form and design proportion, paying attention to the fabrication and how it moves when you wear it. We want you to embrace the freedom that comes with wearing something voluminous!

It is a myth that you need to a certain height or size to pull off the voluminous look.
Here’s how to strike a balance and not get lost in them:
- Balance the dramatic flair of this voluminous dress by keeping accessories simple and minimal.
- Wear your hair in a classic updo and accessorise this look with a pair of subtle or masculine earrings, small clutch bag and stacked soles.
- Cinch the waist to balance out the proportion.

The Print

“The world is blue at its edges and in its depths. This blue is the light that got lost. Light at the blue end of the spectrum does not travel the whole distance from the sun to us.”– The Blue of Distance by Rebecca Solnit, from A Field Guide for Getting Lost
For DEPTHS, I picked out the colours that inspired me at that moment, and just digitally painted away with my fingers. It is what I imagined to be the inverse of EDGES – where the loss is restored and the feelings of strong yearning fulfilled.

MATERIAL

Depths – 96% Polyester, 4% Spandex

Washing Instructions

Turn inside out, put into mesh laundry bag and gentle machine wash. If need be, iron on low heat or a steamer works too. Fold over on a hanger bar to keep in your wardrobe.

DO NOT hand wash, soak, tumble dry or bleach
