MBS x Ft. Lonesome: Everyday Dress, Denim in Almost Black, V.II
"Rule 1: Find a place that you trust and then try trusting it for a while." - Immaculate Heart College Art Department
This very special suite of Everyday Dresses have been custom embroidered with chainstitch and designed by our dear friends at Ft. Lonesome. Each piece is one of a kind, in a one-time production run, which means supplies for this collaboration are limited.
Read on for a description of our Everyday style.
“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.
Made in washed denim with stay stitched frayed arms and hem line, that will continue to fray with time. A great style for wearing solo in the Spring and Summer and layered as a tunic in the Fall and Winter. See all fabric options here. Please note, this will include both in-stock and made-to-order items, you can differentiate the two by whether or not "in-stock" is in the product title.
