When life gives you lemons (or in this case, amazing vintage with irreparable flaws..), you make art! For August 2021, we have a 3 piece hand-painted capsule collection with local artist Emma McClelland, each piece cooler than the last!

Upcycled Norma Kamali 1980s cotton poplin dress with crisp collar, chest pockets, wide sleeves and full pleated hemline from a dramatically dropped waist silhouette. Iconic '80s piece is covered with thoughtfully placed hand-painted botanicals and geometric notions throughout in juicy hues. Dress by Norma Kamali, circa 1980s, with modern textile art.
