French Dress is Bandana Printblluemade
Our best-selling French dress is back in a custom bandana print designed by artist Tomo Adachi. The print takes its inspiration from the historic designers of Western American clothing--Jewish and Chinese immigrants. The bandana print utilizes the symmetrical pattern of Americana bandanas as well as floral motifs, and combines them with imagery from Southern Miao clothing, in a nod to the labor and ideas behind what we think of as American designs. The dress itself is easy and elegant. Shirring inspired by 19th French workwear linen smocks stems from the neck and goes all around, for a beautiful and flattering appearance. This season this dress is available in bandana print and a brushed Japanese cotton flannel in navy.
