KIWAVI DRESS | PURUSHA
Kiwavi meaning caterpillar in Swahilli, the prequel to our Spring Collection Kipepeo (butterfly) dress! They share a similar silhoette however the soon to be metamorphised Kiwavi is shorter in length and features a straight hem. She wraps at the front and the top is intended to be loose and unfitted, creating a shifty smock feel for the gathers skirt panels that fall from it, finished in a hem frill detail. An above elbow balloon sleeve is finished with an elasticated detail. The wrap has ties on each side, one concealed inside and one on the outside which is finished in our handmade bamboo tassels.
