Irina Washed Linen Dress - Black
This variant is currently sold out
Ovate captures the synthesis between nature's raw elegance and the spare beauty of minimalism. Artistry and functionality coalesce in a liminal space. Each garment begins with noble materials - cotton, hemp, wool, silk, linen, silver, leather - in a gradation of blacks and muted, neutral shades. Natural fibres and textures are best complemented by a desaturated, monochromatic palate. Timeless, mysterious and graceful, black is simultaneously lack of colour, and the fusion of them all. Genuine beauty lies in imperfection; human creations, as much as those of the natural world, are given life by their asymmetries and flaws. Drawing from these essential elements, with a focus on deconstruction, distressing, garment-washing, and hand-dyeing, the end result is as unique as the raw materials of which it is wrought.
