Product Details

- Forsyth limited edition print
- Cool feel fabric
- Classic boxy shape

The Forsyth Shift Dress is an easy to wear shape with classic detailing. It features a simple scoop neckline, neat sleeves and a box fit. The length and cool feel fabric composition of the garment make this piece an ideal summer staple. Team with white sneakers for a casual look or dress-up with clogs.

The works of modern day artist Susan Forsyth influenced the Forsyth Box Top and its distinctive ‘shimmer’ detail. Susan’s sculptures are often coated in gold leaf and these shining pieces have inspired us to design a print dedicated to her use of this most delicate material in some of her incredibly large scale works.

Please note, the placement of the print on the garment may vary to that pictured.
