• The Blanchefleur Frock is not only a client favourite, it’s admittedly a favourite of the artist that created the entire IA Collection, Cynthia Ivey Abitz. It’s a design that is relevant for any task, whether it’s everyday life or a resplendent special occasion. The frock changes purpose based upon the fabric one chooses.
• The design’s clever versatility allows clients to have Blanchefleur Frocks made every season in different fabrics, and many clients have started Blanchefleur Frock collections for their wardrobe. Some have a few whilst other have dozens, and they rotate from season to season, knowing that their frocks look different based on the weaves they choose.
• Darts at the chest with a slight tapering in at the waist give a very flattering and feminine fit — just like all of the frocks in the Ivey Abitz Collection. The a-line skirting gives a lovely drape and stellar ease of movement for long workdays and doing any task at hand. Pockets at the side seam keep everyday essentials, like phones and keys, right at hand.
Charm of the Fabric
This stunning 100% linen was woven in Europe with a time-honoured weaving method. It has a mix of rusticity and elegance that we admire.
Originally shown as a featured weave in 2012, we have shown variations of it in our Look Books. It’s been appreciated for years, and it’s worthy of being a core wardrobe weave.
Your Blanchefleur Frock will wash and wear well. Simply wash in cold water with an all natural plant based detergent and fabric softener, delicate cycle. Hang to dry, then tumble dry on low for a few minutes with our artisan wool dryer balls to maintain the softness that we have washed into it.
