The Sakura Slip Dress
This body skimming and light as air design will be the only item you want to wear on those scorching summer days
Named after the beautiful cherry blossoms of Japan, this dress is made from the prettiest pink floral print we've ever laid our eyes on. This fabric was originally purchased with a completely different design in mind, but when we had the sample made, it didn't feel quite right. We almost didn't use this fabric at all until a last minute idea came to mind and this beauty was born. We think this fabric was just being stubborn and waiting until the perfect canvas was ready for it, and we're glad for it. This fabric was made for floating over the body in the way that only a slip dress can.
There's something about a great slip dress that makes you feel so powerful and sexy, yet sweet and modest at the same time. The Sakura is the perfect balance between all these qualities and will make you feel like an unexpected seductress. It must be the lingerie inspired cut that brings this state of mind and we like it.
With the Sakura, we want to give the wearer control over just how much skin she feels like showing. The adjustable straps make it easy to bring the neckline up for more modesty, or down to reveal a little more of her decolletage. The seams below the bustline create that body skimming shape that is oh-so flattering and gives just the right amount of retro vibes.
A midi length hem keeps this style current and the side slits show off the perfect amount of leg: so necessary for dancing the night away on a beach in that tropical destination.
This is the only dress from our entire line that is made from a polyester fabric, but don't let this fool you into thinking it's not as soft or free-flowing -- it's quite the opposite really. This wrinkle free and light as air fabric feels like it's barely touching the skin and catches the breeze in the most alluring way. The fabric is cut on the bias, giving it that slight stretch that moves with your body for the ultimate comfort. We expect you to move and live in this dress -- it's the only way great memories are made.
We took the Sakura dress out several times while in Bali -- how could we resist when it's so perfectly made for this kind of weather? It came to the beach, out for dinner, and walking around to do errands -- and felt amazing each and every time. There's something about the humidity in Bali that makes you want absolutely nothing touching your skin and while we have nothing against nudity at KAYVALYA, we thought we would design the next best thing. This dress will float over the body in the lightest way possible; catching the breeze and flowing freely around you.
While in Bali, we go for the minimalist option -- which means barefoot with a tan and salt sprayed hair. And while this option is perfect for the hottest of summer days, you could just as easily throw on some sandals and a denim jacket for a day at the markets or strappy heels for a romantic night out. We also love this dress layered with a t-shirt underneath and converse sneakers for that cool 90s inspired look.
