CHAMBRAY - Structured Dress
There is beauty in simplicity. You dream of a timeless dress that you can wear from day to night, effortlessly. A dress that stands the test of time and elevates your wardrobe. You've finally found her.
WHY SHE'S SO ESSENTIAL
- The ultimate signature dress. She is sooo versatile! The iconic neckline can be worn as is or easily opened for a more relaxed look. Also, you get options. Beyond a really beautiful dress, you can unbutton halfway and wear it as a top or fully as a vest. She's osome that way ;)
- Super comfortable. Once you feel the difference of breathable raw cotton, you can't go back. Your dress is dyed by hand using plants that is grown by our farming cooperative. Life changing and regenerative, I hope you'll remember the impact you're enabling every time you wear it.
So you can focus on what matters in life. A dress should never limit you! Beauty pain is not an option for us, never get why you should have to sacrifice movement just for looks. Your dress has side slits to make sure you can move, a built in ribbon for custom fit, and pockets.
Ana is 154cm, EU size S. Michel is 165cm, EU size XS. Both wear size I.
Chambray brings a sense of balance. Handwoven with raw cotton threads on the warp and naturally-dyed threads on the weft, our master weavers create the moodiest Melange hues that gets softer with time. An invitation to pare back as we reexamine our relationship with how we live, connect, and dress, in search of greater connectivity.

Terima kasih banyak, ini Sukkha Citta pertamaku, dan happy sekali waktu buka packagingnya!! Saya jadi terharu sendiri 😭😭😭 Overall it's an utterly divine shopping experience 💕
As the description says, the color is indeed one-of-a kind (deep indigo color). The combination of the color and the pattern reminds me of a deep blue ocean, calming & beautiful. I also love the fact that it is versatile, therefore I could wear this not only when going on special occasion, but also as an outerwear for everyday use. It feels very light and the fabric is also perfect for summer! It is an elegant and high quality made-right piece :)
It fits me well, and I am proud wearing it - it's beyond just clothing, I feel that I made some contribution.
At one glance or only touch the dress with hands, the dress felt normal. However the biggest surprise is when the dress is worn on the skin. Feels so comfortable, yet so strong. The fabric's drape is so natural despite it's sturdy look. I wore it whole day and still feel so comfortable. The sewing technique and workmanship is also done meticulously. Such a good quality piece. I am very happy with my purchase.
Love the rich colour, the handwoven texture, the simple but elegant waves, and the story behind it all :)
