Marilyn Monroe is best known for ultra glam, bombshell style. Off-screen she was most comfortable in a tee shirt and barefoot.
Tired of having her cotton tees wear out and get holes in them after a few wears, the founder created the Marilyn white silk tee shirt to solve that problem.
Silk has the tensile strength of steel and a lower environmental impact than most other fabrics. The silk jersey gives the tee a better drape and is extremely comfortable. The luster of the silk elevates the look making it more versatile than your regular cotton tee shirt. It will take you from the workday to the weekend with ease.
The Marilyn was featured in Fast Company as a way to reduce plastic in your life. It can be hand washed (we've tested it with The Laundress products.)
This item is part of our jet set collection for women on the go. Frequent travelers know how hard it is to find items that are stylish, elegant and that pack well. A quick steam or wrinkle release spray is all the top needs for a quick refresh.
- Scoop neck
- Bound at hem, sleeves and neckline to create a polished finish
- Hits at mid hip
- Skims the body, it's not tight or oversized
- Made of mid-weight silk jersey
- Inside seams are sewn and finished with a 4-thread baby overlock for strength, to prevent fraying and to create a clean finish.
The Marilyn takes 2 hours for one craftsman to sew start to finish.
The Marilyn can be paired with jeans for a more casual look, or the Sophia pencil skirt when you are looking for a classic yet comfortable look for the office.
This style is made from an ultra soft silk jersey that offers superior drape without being flowing or tight. It has a relaxed fit, but is not oversized.
