Nevelson Maxi Dress

Nevelson Maxi Dress

View Size Guide

Product Details

Made from 100% polished cotton, the Nevelson Maxi Dress has a smooth, luxe finish. A lightweight fabrication, it is cool against the skin on hot summer days. The A line silhouette is complemented by a scooped neckline and longer back hem. This versatile shape creates an easy wear, flowy drape that can be cinched in at the waist with the removable belt for a more fitted look. When worn loose, the dress takes on a swing style that is amplified by the extended back hem and angled panel detail along the back seam.

We took inspiration from the artistic works of Louise Nevelson to create the ‘Nevelson Print’. Nevelson produced monumental sculptures that for their time defied public opinion by “breaking the taboo that only men’s artwork could be large scale”. She appeared to find confidence in this challenge and her bold experimentation, bohemian lifestyle and strength in character were a wonderful inspiration for us to never to feel the need to conform to the everyday.

Design & Maker Notes

This garment was designed by the Elk team in Melbourne and handmade in China by a family owned and operated factory. We visit this manufacturer up to four times a year to assess working conditions, oversee garment construction and to source new materials.
