Sleeveless Shift Dress - Hands Print on Madder
Our sleeveless shift dress was a new silhouette in our Babar collection and has been a classic ever since! This season we have lengthened the bottom hem and added a deep split up either side for more of a tunic fit. Still, with all of the elegance and ease of our cap sleeve dress, it is also a perfect layering piece for evening looks. A simple rounded neckline and below the knee-length hem are flattering on all body shapes and sizes. The sleeveless shift is also one of our fluid pieces in that it can be layered with our tailored or wide-leg pants on any gender acting as more of a tunic style. Paired with a turtleneck or skivvy and stockings for the cooler evenings, or a belt and cropped jacket for the effortlessly stylish look. Pictured is the sleeveless shift in this season’s iconic Hand print on red Madder – a vibrant earthy tone of red hand block printed by our expert team in Pushkar on our hand-spun, handwoven khadi cotton for a breathable natural feel Its classic shape will make it the perfect dress to take for a family summer lunch with your favourite cardigan, a work lunch teamed with a classic blazer, and after-work drinks with a denim jacket.
This collection features an all-over print of hands, which, since the Made by Hand collection, has an increased meaning and significance in our contemporary society. They symbolise the power of many – that collectively we have the power to change the world for the better. They symbolise the hands that create, the hands that make – celebrating the craftspeople who make our clothes, as well as the c craftspeople within our community. The hands that rise to be involved in the decision making of our future, and the strength of working together will make our world a safer, fairer and more sustainable one.
