About the Style:
Philippa is the ultimate comfort dress. She is cool and breezy, with an unstructured waist that gives her a slightly oversize feel. If you prefer a closer fit at the waist, her waist belt can be pulled in for a custom fit.
Philippa is slightly longer in length than our other dresses. Her ¾ length sleeves can be turned back, creating a cuff. Tiny knife pleats run around her waist and, of course, she has classic Palava deep pockets.
About the Print:
"This print was inspired by the cave paintings made many thousands of years ago and also the simple cut out techniques of the artist Matisse. You can find hidden animals amongst the shapes if you look carefully. I created the original artwork with ink on paper"
About the Fabric:
Our linen-cotton blend gets the best of both worlds - the cool, summery feel of linen with a softer less crinkly finish. The texture and weight however gives our dresses a beautiful structure and shape. This custom cloth is woven and printed for us in Turkey, where we are proud to have visited the weavers and growers. Please note, a slight slubbing can occur on linen. This is part of its charm and gives the cloth its coveted vintage feel. Do not pick or snip at the slubs! They are part of the fabrics character and intrinsic to its structure.
