The Dress of Liberty, Allure, and Freedom
As for the wrap, it is hard to think of another style of dress that has the power to evoke such images of feline sensuality grace, liberation, and freedom of movement. The earliest versions were designed by revolutionary American designer Claire McCardell, who did so much to unshackle women’s clothing; and couturier Elsa Schiaparelli, who also loved to design for the confident woman who was not afraid to use fashion as a cloak of feminine armour. Then, in the seventies, Diane Furstenberg, introduced her famous knee-length stretch versions, in bright, pop art prints and Michelle Obama wore updated day versions of the dress during her tenure as First Lady.
An Eternal Fashion Star
The wrap dress is an eternal fashion star and a symbol of women’s emancipation and freedom that never goes out of fashion. Every woman should have at least one in her closet. The Reformation wrap dress is a sublime, well-priced example in a mix of sustainable rayon and silk with a bold deep V neckline and high side split. The dress features soft, sensual gathers at the yoke, flattering capped sleeves, and a generous, Oscar-worthy length, which looks elegant from all angles. With its molten, effortless, easy contours it appears to flow and hug the contours of the body and yet impart such sassy, confident freedom of movement to the woman who wears it. Bravo!
