Mela Purdie’s Black Botanica Dress is crafted from a sophisticated combination of matte jersey and Microprene cotton that drapes beautifully from a soft V-neck into a voluminous silhouette, ideal for warmer climes.

It’s shaped with full-length sleeves and a matte jersey upper then falls into a Microprene cotton tiered skirt, accented by gathered panels.

Side slit pockets ensure this dress becomes a go-to for seasons to come.

Mirror the minimalist appeal of the relaxed, oversized silhouette by pairing with barely-there nude sandals.
