The Frances top takes its inspiration from Grace Kelly's style in the Hitchcock film, To Catch a Thief. Her character is refined and elegant, but no-nonsense just like her wardrobe — a spirit we tried to capture. This iconic style is from one of the most famous scenes where she's driving through the French Riviera with Cary Grant.
Why we love it:
- Princess seams are rarely used in clothing today other than bridal because they are more complicated to fit and take additional time to sew, but they provide a more flattering fit because of how they skim a body's curves.
- We love ensembles because they give you the ease of a dress, but are far more versatile since the top can be paired with jeans, slacks, or other skirts.
- This item is part of the Senza Tempo Capsule Collection made from our signature Italian virgin wool twill, which is comfortable and travel-friendly. A quick steam or crease release spray is all it needs for a quick refresh. We are always adding to this collection of wardrobe essentials so that women can easily create their own capsule wardrobe.
Fit notes and construction details:
- The Frances is a sleek sleeveless top with a delicate scallop detail at the hem and keyhole opening in the back.
- The princess seams are tailored to follow your shape and give a long slim line especially when paired with the coordinating Sophia or Ali skirts.
- Outer fabric is 94% Italian virgin wool, 4% polyamide, 2% elastane made in Italy. Lining is 100% silk.
- It is cut to skim the body, so please mind your bust and waist measurements when you consult our size guide. We do not do vanity sizing, therefore one might consider we run small. Please size up if your waist or bust is on the border of sizes.
- Email us or send us a text for additional sizing help.
- Made in Los Angeles
- The Frances pairs with our Sophia skirt to create an ensemble for days when you don't feel like wearing a suit. It gives you the ease of a dress, but the flexibility of separates.
- The top is long enough to comfortably wear with jeans for after-work hour outings.
- We also love it paired with our Diana Cocktail for special occasions with your sparkliest shoes.
