Embrace Versatility

The signature of a perfect women's dress is versatility. When a dress is versatile in shape, colour, and fit, it becomes an instant essential staple of your wardrobe, effortlessly adapting to any occasion and working with any of your flat sandals or high heels, worn with a denim jacket or blazer, dressed up with jewellery or pared down with white sneakers. Dresses with timeless designs, exclusive artistic prints and classic colours can be styled up or down with ease. The Genoa Dress in Brushstroke Print is the ultimate example: a chic below the knee length dress with blouson sleeves, providing lightweight coverage when worn alone, while the button through front and tie-belt offer the option to style as a duster, layered over a basic pant and top, or simply worn as a day or evening dress and accessories with any type of shoe or jewellery.
