Mela Purdie’s black Staple Dress is cut to a relaxed understated silhouette, ideal for casual weekend affairs.
It’s made in Australia from the label’s exclusive French stretch “microprene” cotton–a key seasonal fabric for the Sydney-based label. Wide straps frame a subtle v-neckline that’s mirrored at the back. It’s finished with 2 front patch pockets–a design feature that subtly nods to utilitarian design tropes.
Opt for all-black accessories to channel the label's sophisticated minimalism.
