ALLEGRA DRESS BLUE MOON BANDHANI
Meet Allegra – our sheer tie-dye maxi dress in Blue Moon Bandhani. Generous tiers of silk chiffon create a chic and beautiful shape that drapes your body and moves freely, gracefully, with you.
Allegra is a true gypsy dress with a free-spirited soul. She’s hands in the air, bangles cascading down her arms. Her hair is messy and she’s floating on the breeze. Swirling and wafting, her light gestures occupy the space – a magnetic presence, turning heads as she goes.
Her V front is low, her chiffon is sheer, but she’s not here to show off – she gets plenty of attention without trying and besides, her high back means the only drama is of her own making.
This girl is confident, sassy and knows exactly where she’s going – from her morning espresso to evening cocktails, she’s the first to arrive and the last to leave.
FABRIC + CARE
Bandhani, the first ever tie dye technique, originated in Rajasthan and Gujarat thousands of years ago. Bandhani – meaning “to bind or to tie” is the preserve of craftspeople who spend years perfecting their art. We work with traditional artisans in Jaipur (The Pink City), who learnt how to dye each piece by hand from their fathers and forefathers. We experimented with several tie dye designs – from tiny dots to large circles – before settling on this more minimal look.
This dress is also available in Tiger’s Eye Bandhani – a rich golden brown with a silky lustre, resembling the eyes of a tiger, in Sand tie dye maxi dress is an ethereal pale gold that reminds us of the Moroccan desert in the early morning sun and in Black Tie Dye.
We made this maxi dress in chiffon – a sheer fabric; light, silky and very soft to the touch.
We recommend dry cleaning to give your dress the very best care. Alternatively, hand wash it separately in cold water with a delicate detergent and hang dry.
Please avoid spraying perfume or deodorant on the dress. Keep out of direct sunlight to keep the colour strong and preserve the natural life of the chiffon.
