The Tete dress is a song of effortless sprezzatura. Rendered in black cotton lawn with a faint white embroidered dot (sewn inside out for your sensory pleasure.) Inspired by the feminine shift-dresses of the seventies, but updated with flattering self-ties to accentuate the waist, and a petal-fold neckline. It’s a goddess dress without the fuss: flattering, pulled-together, romantic, yet never trying too hard. As apropos barefoot on the patio as it is at a black tie party with satin slippers.
The dress is designed to be loose, and slips over the head. The narrow silhouette is achieved by tying bows at front and back, or alternatively, at the sides. The soft black swiss dot is sewn with the fuzzy white nubs of embroidery facing inside against your skin - a nod to courtyard architecture, designed for to be enjoyed by the inhabitant. Two subtle slits in the front aide in movement.
Limited-edition run made in Los Angeles of remnant deadstock fabric. Unlined.
