Inspiration:

Gamine supermodel Twiggy, neé Lesley Lawson, was the fashion icon and face of London’s swinging Mod sixties. The A-line shape freed women from and sleek construction of the trapeze dress defined 1960s fashion. This silhouette was both functional and ultra-modern.

Why we love it:

  • If we had to pick one word to describe the Lawson it’s: Ease. 
  • The trapeze shape is forgiving and comfortable, but the crisp clean lines keep the styles supremely elegant.

Fit notes and construction details:

  • Trapeze, A-line shift dress
  • Jewel neckline
  • Side seam pockets that comfortably hold even an iPhone Plus
  • Invisible back zip with hook & eye closure.
  • Hits just above the knee.
  • This style is made from silk-wool and does not contain any stretch materials. Please mind our size guide when selecting your size. We do not do vanity sizing, therefore one might consider we run small.
  • Email us or send us a text for additional sizing help.
  • Made in Los Angeles

Styling ideas:

  • You can change up the look of this dress by adding the Coco or Jackie removable collar — an accessory common in 1960s haute couture.
  • The Lawson dress works as a cocktail dress with heels as pictured, but it can be worn with ballet flats or sandals for a more casual look. 
  • We love when clients have shortened to make it into a tunic top paired with leggings or wide palazzo style pants like the Carole.
