The Ariana is a softer, more feminine take on a classic silk blouse, with a split neckline, drapey puffed sleeves, and an easy shape through the body. (There's also a hook-and-eye closure at the top of the neck, which can give it a slightly different look when you wear it closed vs. open.) This one's made of our favorite luxe, weighty-yet-seasonless, 40momme, 4ply crepe de chine.
When it comes to silk, 40momme crepe de chine is our go-to. Momme (pronounced ‘mommy’) is the unit by which silk is measured, so this one's just about as heavy and luxe as it gets. Don’t let the weight throw you off… while this quality is dense and lush, it’s also pretty seasonless. Most of us wear it all year round, unless we’re in particularly hot climates without AC. (Silk has natural temperature-regulating properties.) The finish is lustrous without being too shiny. Long story short, this fabric is beautiful.
