Pina Formentera Dress
An ode to neo-expressionist dancer Pina Bausch, this print is an explosion of colour and shape hand-drawn without uniformity. Louisa found that black and white photos of Bausch in rehearsal rooms so evocative of the captured movement that she created an interpretation through a combination of tangerine, iris and lemon meringue, and spots of chocolate brown and cream. Manipulate the drape of the print with the belt tie of the Formentera dress, cinching the dress at the waist and creating a beautiful shape with the sleeves and skirt.
The Formentera Dress is a one size style and sits in a relaxed way on the body. The dress is constructed from 100% silk twill. For reference, our model Felicity is 182cm tall.
Included with your dress is a repurposed silk drawstring bag, which can be used to transport and protect your dress when not in use.
We have found the best way to spruce up your dress is by ironing on the appropriate fabric setting. You can also steam the fabric if you have a steamer to hand.
We recommend dry cleaning the dress, using eco services where possible, when necessary.
