Pina Kalkan Dress
An ode to neo-expressionist dancer Pina Bausch, this print is an explosion of colour and shape hand-drawn without uniformity. Louisa found black and white photos of Bausch in rehearsal rooms so evocative of the captured movement that she created an interpretation in tangerine, iris and spots of chocolate brown. The Kalkan dress is a style with voluminous drape that has been brought back for a reprise in SS22.
The Kalkan Dress is available in two sizes and sits in a relaxed way on the body. The dress is constructed from 100% silk twill. For reference, our model Akbota is 182cm tall and wears a size S/M.
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.
