'modern cocoon' distressed silk dress

A most modern kind of color - grayish green - gives this comfortable dress an avant-garde look, further enhanced by the added detailing and textures, like crinkled different shade silk on bottom, textured silk along the waistline, and fun pocket on the bottom. Fitted through the upper body, with a slightly slight empire waist and it balloons toward the bottom. Made out Thai silk, which is tightly woven, it holds the round shape very well vs. draping. Built-in side pockets give it a hip look and feel. Most comfortable to wear, lightweight, and easy-care, this dress is a big city must-have for round-the-year wear. Wear it with boots and fitted short jackets for chillier days, or flats/sneakers for casual summer days, or heels for the evening. Lots of pairing options due to its neutral color. One of the artist's personal favorites. Can be modified if you need more chest room, please ask. Also note that the actual color is like the in-studio shots vs. outdoors. Product code: X3523

Hand wash cold, dryer OK, or hang dry.

All garments arrive to you freshly cleaned, unlike regular store-bought items, and are ready to wear.

Dry-cleaning is ok on most items but only if gentle methods are used and the cleaners are familiar with cleaning hand-painted delicate fabrics.

To freshen up any item that doesn’t need deep cleaning simply mist it with a water spray and put in the dryer on medium heat for about 15 min.

All garments can be hand washed. Wash each item separately, cold water only, minimal amount of detergent, and as briefly as possible, no soaking. The wash can be followed by a spin in the washer and dried on medium heat until dry. Knits should be hung-dried and when dry, finished in the dryer for a few minutes to soften.

Hand-pressing may be necessary after the wash and dry to straighten out the seams and edges which tend to pucker or curl on natural fabrics.

Some hand-dyed items may leak a bit of color during the washing, that is normal and will not affect the item. Using liquid softener during the wash will minimize any color leaking.

For more tips and details please refer to the cleaning instructions card included with your package.
