Crepe Maxi Dress

US $255.00 Final Sale

FINAL SALE

Fluid and endlessly elegant (the sleeveless V-neck bodice, while conservative, is extremely flattering), this ankle-skimming crèpe gown can hold its own at a dressed-up event, though we like to steer it into daywear territory with flat sandals and a simple cross-body bag.  

  • Outer: 78% acetate, 22% viscose; Lining: 100% acetate
  • Dry clean only
  • French sizing

About the Brand

Carmen de Tommaso’s label launched right in step with couture houses like Balmain and Christian Dior, with some pretty key differences. At just 5’1″, de Tommaso was intent on designing for petite women, and she used her travels to the far-flung corners of the globe as fodder for her designs. Inspired by Africa and Asia, the line was always full of bright prints and stripes, and while it went dark for decades, the brand’s recent re-emergence plays homage to that early playfulness.
