Tip: Are you a size 4 and are unsure of which size to go for? Depending on the style and your mood, you may opt for either XS-S or M-L. For a looser, more oversized fit, you may opt for M-L. For a more fitted look, you can opt for XS-S. Every style features product measurements so you can be sure of the right fit for you. 

Some of our styles follow three size options: S, M, L. The size guide below is a guideline to convert to your usual size.

The limited edition piece is made using rescued excess luxury fabric and upcycled into a beautiful new piece. A drapey dipped hem flatters different shapes, cinch in at the waist with this cool and lightweight everyday dress.

Due to the nature of upcycling available excess luxury fabrics, only 25 pieces were made of this style. Once it's gone, it's gone! 

- Redwood upcycled 100% silk
- Pockets on both sides with an adjustable waist belt
- Pleat detail at shoulder and fluid handkerchief hemline
- Made in Hong Kong by a social enterprise committed to local craftsmanship
- Model is 178cm/ 5'10" and is wearing a size XS-S

Also available in Navy Jersey.

*Colour may fade slightly after hand wash due to the natural silk fibres.

RINSE

A collaboration between The R Collective and Chinese London based designer, Wen Pan, the ‘Rinse’ collection takes inspiration from the emotive narrative ingrained in every stitch of clothing through the wearer’s life and memories. True to Wen Pan’s signature style, ‘Rinse’ evokes characters of femininity and roughness, a hint of delicacy juxtaposed with deconstruction - a quiet chaos and imperfect raw fluidity and rich textures.

REIMAGINE UPCYCLING

UPCYCLED SILK

Soft, timeless and elegant. This crepe de chine was sourced from a reputable mill serving luxury brands. We eliminate the need for producing new silk which reduces energy and water consumption enabling us to create a positive environmental impact.

By upcycling fabric, we can reduce our carbon footprint by approx. 60% compared to similar garments created using virgin materials.

The People

The Aldgate Dress was cut and sewn by a local social enterprise based in Hong Kong using high quality, upcycled materials. All of our pieces are crafted with special attention to detail with a luxurious finish. We believe in creating garments made to last so you can love and wear them for seasons to come. Our lovely pattern cutter and seamstress, Sandy Ng, lovingly crafted each piece, approving every final stitch before it made its way to our warehouse in Hong Kong.

Lovely, lightweight Summer dress

I love this elegant silk dress. I've already received compliments! Feels very light which is perfect for hot Hong Kong weather. I'm sure I will wear this for many years to come. :)
