“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
Our Everyday Dress has been hand painted by our artist crush Naomi Clark. Naomi joined us at our studio and created paints from our the same plant derived pigments that tint our collection. She painted two large panels of silk noil in separate and distinct color palettes, one composed of earthen tones created with Acacia Catechu, Henna, Sandalwood and Madder Root and another with floral tones created with Indigo, Cochineal collected in Oaxaca, and Quebracho Rojo. After each panel was painted, they were cured in the Texas sun and our four Everyday Dresses were cut from each color story.
Each piece is one of a kind, created in a one-time production run, which means supplies for this collaboration are limited.
Read on for a description of our Everyday Dress style.
Consider the Everyday style 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.
