LC Caftan Dress
You do know analysis can lead to paralysis?
Yes, this is indeed a caftan and a dress.
You’ve been asking for one for quite some time so it shouldn’t surprise you. It took us a while because our caftan aficionados (you know who you are) don’t just accept things on a whim. They don’t suffer that which is ill conceived.
We needed to be on our game.
There are many reasons why this Caftan Dress (No. 4927) effortlessly bridges the gap between the unencumbered joy of a caftan and the shapely style of a dress.
First, the lace along the shoulder and back yoke is delicate and ultra-feminine. The sweetheart neck accentuates slender necklines and shoulders.
There is a self-tie sash to give it more shape but we’ve also added a color blocking effect with the diagonal contrasting color panels that extend from the front waist to the hemline. An hourglass can never be highlighted enough in my opinion. Period.
The hemline falls chicly below the knee in the front but extends to the low calf on the sides. This feature alone may lead the casual observer to believe she is looking at a dress. It is also a caftan.
Other notables include the 100% linen fabric, the contrasting color on the neckline, sleeves, side slits and sweep, and the elbow length sleeve.
