This style is made to order and ships in 2-4 weeks.
When looking at the Margu pieces I've collected for myself over the years, there are a few that stand out, a few that I've washed and worn more times than I can count. One of those pieces is the Delphine Top (and corresponding Celeste Dress) from FW16, a simple, flowy shift piece with ruffly sleeves. I figured it was time to bring this style back for FW19, and for the Cleo Dress I took the original Celeste pattern from our archives, updated the neckline and armscye for a better fit, added pockets (naturally!), and last but not least, added an extra layer of ruffle, because there's no such thing as too fancy of a sleeve. Undoubtedly a classic updated for the better!

This dress is made of silk double georgette woven in Korea. With a hand that feels somewhere in between silk crepe and silk chiffon, this fabric has incredible drape and subtle sheen. The color is a warm, mustardy ochre brown that captures the very essence of autumn.
The dress is lined with Bemberg cupro rayon woven in Japan. Cuprammonium rayon is so neat: it has all the benefits of being a natural fiber — breathability, biodegradability, durability — in addition to all the benefits of a super silky lining fabric — anti-static, anti-cling, total opacity. Made from the leftover fibers (known as linter) from the cotton plant after the ginning process, cupro is super-sustainable too (a true zero-waste fiber!).
