Style notes

Cut from the lightest, opaque striped Dobby weave cotton, the Kate feels cool and soft against the skin. It is gently shaped to our signature silhouette, but to avoid transparency we've cut it looser round the hip (plain nude underwear can't be seen through the fabric) . Our clever hidden button below the bust prevents gaping.

The neckline is a feminine take on the traditional tuxedo shirt with exquisite knife edge pleats framed by a mandarin collar. This shirtdress has a decorative ease that transitions well from day to night and it is at its very best while combatting hot and humid conditions - it look crisp even in the hottest temperatures!

The Kate has a ¾ placket, ¾ sleeves, darts at the back to give the shape definition and the hem falls just above the knee.
