Alex spent months researching the ultimate cottons and ensuring the best possible finishes to create a timeless shirt dress that feels totally luxurious and will last for years.
We have partnered with the one of the world’s leading cotton mills to provide all the fabric for the collection. The chambray, dobby weave, poplins and stretch cotton (with a tiny percentage of elastane) fabrics will get better and better.
The ALEX BLACK shirt dress is as beautiful on the inside as it is on the outside. We have used french seams throughout in order to achieve the most luxurious look and feel.
Bagged out hems are a feature of all the dresses – the extra weight in the double fabric ensures that the dresses hang nicely and the french seams ensure that the hem feels smooth against the wearer’s legs.
WHIP KNOT FINISHED BUTTONS
All the buttons are whip knot finished – this means that they stand proud from the fabric and are sewn on to last.
We chose plastic buttons instead of mother of pearl buttons because these dresses will last for years and over time, mother of pearl buttons would crack in the washing machine. There’s a spare button, just in case, sewn into the lovely french seam.
The ALEX BLACK shirt dresses are each delivered in their own white twill bag, while the jewellery is packaged in small black pouches.
