If you're a little black dress person, then you need to add this modern classic beauty to your collection! Or if you haven't got one that you love, then this new Lucy Dress will convert you to the joys of simple, timeless, elegance.
The Lucy Dress is so easy, versatile and comfortable. It looks so lovely worn casually during the day with leather sandals but easily turns into something lush and special with the addition of heels, sparkles or colourful statement jewellery.
Carefully considered design means the Lucy Dress looks fantastic on a variety of body shapes and sizes and the colour is strong enough that it suits all complexions. Whilst being a slightly loose, free shape, much care has been taken to finesse the fit, ensuring a clean and flattering form. It celebrates feminine curves by nipping in slightly at just the right spot on the waist but still drapes over the tummy. Sleeves are a neat cap length and the hem falls just on the knee. Of course there’s pockets in the side seams too!
Made from Tencel which comes from wood pulp and is considered one of the most environmentally friendly fabrics. The breathability, smooth, slinky touch and elegant drape is similar to silk but it is sturdier and easier to care for. It feels absolutely beautiful on the body, cool and light on the hottest of days. It's not a jet black due to the soft peachy finish of the fabric which gives it a slightly more subdued tone.
Limited edition, handmade in Sydney’s inner west by a small business.
Cold hand wash is best for this fabric in terms of look, feel and longevity. From time to time if placed inside a wash bag on delicates cycle in the machine, using mild phosphate free detergent, that will be ok. Low spin only and do not leave crushed inside the machine. Dry on a coathanger. Warm iron with lots of steam but also looks lovely un-ironed.
