a non-gendered, classic oversized shirt that's long enough to wear as a dress, french-tuck into 'the legging' or wear beautifully as it is open or closed. this shirt is oversized in length + width with dropped shoulders, while maintaining the perfect balance of tailoring around the wrists and neck.

inspired by the nostalgia of primary school art smocks, it was originally designed with front pockets. finished with creamy white vegetable ivory buttons from new zealand. a non-negotiable staple on formal uniform days.
