Frankenthaler Silk Dress

Frankenthaler Silk Dress

Product Details

- Frankenthaler limited edition print
- Silk fabric
- Comes with a cool feel slip

A favourite Elk shape, the Frankenthaler Silk Dress is a boxy style that is flattering for many body shapes. Crafted from a soft silk blend, it has a lightweight feel and drapes beautifully around the body. The dropped shoulder semi capped sleeves create a soft rounded shape that falls to a comfortable knee length hem. A statement piece for the festive season, this beautiful silk dress also comes with a slip that is attached via tiny subtle thread loops placed on the underside of the shoulder line. A simple pendant necklace and a pair of metallic flats or wedges will effortlessly complete this outfit.

We drew inspiration for this vibrant print from the artwork of Helen Frankenthaler. Creating large scale paintings by using new techniques she created through decades if experimentation and development, Helen Frankenthaler’s works are awe inspiring. Notably her use of colour, layering and bold expression earnt her the reputation as a major contributor to post war American painting.

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