Milan-based La DoubleJ makes party-ready skirts and dresses in reissued vintage fabrics, “distilled through a lens of pure joy, eye-popping print and love of all things maximal.” Sounds about right! The name of this style is especially inspired — LDJ calls it the perfect “ride around Rome on the back of a scooter” piece — and it’s a twist on a classic shirtdress with a mini-length hemline, a voluminous front ruche, and fabric-covered buttons down the front. It’s made of striped, summer-weight poplin with a crisper, lighter feel than LDJ’s typical cotton poplin.
“La DoubleJ prints are kooky and colorful and STRONG… but timeless in the same way that Lilly Pulitzer or Pucci feel. Retro but modern. I love having this line in the store – it is a great complement to my own stuff.”
