'Sissy' Smock Dress - Ivory
Regular price $106
This sweet smock style blends a ‘70s influence with the short swingy silhouette of traditional ‘50s girls’ dresses. Our fresh and lightweight dobby spot cotton voile is paired with warm-toned floral embroideries, for a sweet naive simplicity. Hand smocking at the chest lends the ‘Sissy’ a nostalgic summer mood.

Apolina’s SS20 collection was inspired by summer days spent in the south of France last year. Trawling French flea markets, we admired the simple beauty of antique nightgowns, rails of stiff white cotton and delicate broderie anglaise trims. The simple, time-softened fabrics of vintage table linens found at brocantes inspired our prints and woven textiles.
These treasures interlaced with memories of childhood holidays spent on French farms, the warm, faded grandeur of holiday homes with sun-faded paints on crumbling plaster, colourful art on the walls, and worn, patterned tiles. With a casual summer holiday mood, where refreshing sorbet colours mix with our usual natural palette, the collection was created to wear on spring adventures and slow summer picnics by the river.
