Ares Dress

The olive color of the linen used in this dress has a distinct military feel. The style is inspired by women who have fought for justice, like Josephine Baker, a dancer and a singer, but also a French Resistance agent and civil rights activist. The shape of the dress nods to a military jumpsuit with utilitarian details, updated with a fuller sleeve.
