Black Gathered Waist Dress
If it weren't for the modern mini-length, we'd swear that this draped jersey dress was a Madame Gres original from the 40s. But look closer and you'll notice little details—the carefully bound edges at the waist, the raw edges at the neck and hem—that make this a distinctly Rick Owens design. Though this dress slips on without any fuss at all, there's tons of craft involved in the careful draping and twisting that creates such a flattering silhouette on the body. Simple, and yet anything but, this dress's luxurious jersey will compel you to wear it any way, any day that you can, whether that means on its own with simple flats or under a leather jacket with tough ankle boots or with a nipped-waist blazer and practical pump.
Boat neckline with raw edges. Twisted and draped detail at front waist. Bound center back seam. Finished with raw hem detailing. Unlined. Made in Italy.
70% viscose/15% cotton/15% nylon.
Please note that all Rick Owens Lilies items undergo extensive dyeing, washing, and hand finishing that is integral to their design. Any variations or imperfections in color and texture are a natural result of this intensely artisanal process.
