Idea’s another simple but impressive linen dress with a row of coconut buttons. The image of the lady who will wear it, well, I am a guy who will feel life a little incomplete, unfinished, empty or hungry at some point if I fail to read a good book, miss a good opera or concert, find a good movie which will inspire my thoughts in a period of time. So this dress is for a lady who understands what I wrote above and shares the same feeling in the other side of the world. We have been waiting for something simple but have the sense to catch our attention, enchant an understanding smile; it is not easy for us.

The special detail beside the asymmetrical line of front opening is the waist. Pictures are hard to illustrate it clearly, so I will explain here: there are two loops and two sashes, one sash linked to the right front piece, the other sash start from the right side seam and through the back loop to help to show your waist line. The loop on the back is purposely made shorter than your waist to give an illusion that your waist looks one size down. The sashes and loops will form pleats to flatter you. You may wear the dress loose waist or fitted as you wish. Simple and clever detail inspired from ancient Chinese robe for artists.

This dress will be made with 100% top quality linen, I find it no different in pictures when you took pictures on a top quality linen or ordinary quality linen, but we will use top quality linen anyway. You may choose from black and indigo blue by far. Other colors (beige, tan, rich red, coral, white) are of 50% cotton/ 50% linen, also in good quality.
