wiksten saffron dress

photography and set styling by Lena Corwin, modeling by Anne McClain, bangles and necklace by Odette New York, cuff bracelet by Lauren Manoogian, No.6 clogs

Hand-dyed silk crepe de chine with gray/silver shell buttons.  I spent a lot of time getting this color just right.  It's bright but rusty at the same time, and it looks great with a summer tan.  I've always loved orange--such a happy color.

that color is gorgeous. and same with the dress as well. perfect for the coming summer and great to wear for fall (being orange and all!) and I love how you styled her.

I saw the tank version at the sale but not the dress. This is gorgeous! I'll have to try my luck when you post the collection for sale.

You really did manage to make that orange both bright and rusty. I am so impressed. Your fabrics this season just cannot be improved upon--there's a calculation and a precision to their beauty.

I really look forward to you releasing this collection, then checking my bank account, then hesitating, then watching everything sell out in my size, then feeling regret for the foreseeable future. :)
