Hypatia Elegant pleated dress for women made of silk in black

Regular price € 940,00 including VAT

Elegant, black designer silk dress that flirts with the supposed contradictions of playfulness and severity. Exceptional oversize dress for the obstinate woman in summer.

"Defend your right to think" is one of the quotations attributed to the late antique mathematician, astronomer and philosopher Hypatia of Alexandria. However, we are not sure of the authorship, because nothing has survived of the works of the great thinker, who was considered particularly eloquent and progressive. For the sole reason that she was not a man.

Black silk dress with a headstrong character

To honour this extraordinary and impressive woman, we have dedicated a black silk dress with a discreet round neckline to her in our in-house atelier - a timelessly elegant dress that can also be worn casually with a delicate belt.

Fancy pleated dress in silk

The elegance of the wide-cut, airy, free-flowing dress with its short, wide sleeves and two slits of different lengths is subtly interrupted by two small, patch pockets on the front that are slightly frayed.

Extraordinary oversize dress

This play with contrasts continues at the seams: the front one is closed, straight and central and looks clean, smooth and classy. The back one is slightly frayed and looks unadjusted, rebellious and provocative.

Festive evening dress

The elegant obstinacy is not limited to the seasons either, because 'Hypatia' can be worn with flat sandals or high heels in spring and summer, for example. In autumn and winter, stubborn ladies can make a style break and combine the elegant dress with boots.

Hypatia is therefore suitable as an evening dress as well as during the day for festive occasions such as a wedding or similar.

As in all our creations, there are a few surprising details in this rarity:

the smooth French seams at the neckline.
the asymmetrical hem of the dress.
the three ochre stripes on the right side slit, characteristic for eigensinnig.

Dress for women in large sizes

The oversize dress is also suitable for women who wear plus size. The width makes it particularly figure-hugging. Please take the measurements from the size chart.
