Designed as a compliment to our collaboration with L'Envers, the Olympe Vest. Each dress is one-of-a-kind, and will have a cotton/linen light grey sleeve like the sleeves pictured in thePatchwork Shirt. The design will be the same palette as the dress pictured.
Inspired by the Namibian women of the Herero tribe, these custom made Patchwork Dresses are symbols of resiliency and strength after overcoming attempted Genocide in the 19th century. These dresses are art pieces meant to empower, embolden, and inspire all while telling the stories of Africa.
In efforts to utilize the exorbitant waste generated by the fashion industry, all dresses are made using recycled material and special vintage deadstock fabric. Each dress will come with panels that have been meticulously selected and some even hand sewn for the preservation of the material. They are made with natural fibers.
We are excited to offer this dress in collaboration with L'Envers, a thoughtful and innovative knitwear brand based in Spain. This brand is not only practicing sustainability and ethics in their operations, but they are also transparent in their goals and in the ways we can all work to improve. We share values, as their philosophy is "make it slow to make it last", and this is what brings us together for a special offering this holiday season. Units are limited - please email us before ordering if you have any questions!
