the quadro botanica


For someone who likes to make an exit as well as an entrance, the quadro botanica is the next evolution of our original beloved quadro dress.

This spectacular piece is limited to an edition of one- a floating work of art defined by a lush panel of fine, flocked linen which forms an extended, cape-like feature. Depicting striking motifs in silhouette, the back of the dress is a counterpoint to its simplicity from the front. The contrast produces a statement at once bold and subtle.

Tucks at the hem create the slightest cocoon, while a banded neckline and mid-length sleeves complete the disguise : an airy linen dress with beauty revealed in the wearing.

lj struthers

lj struthers clothing is informed by insistence on comfort, commitment to craftsmanship, and the joy of self-expression we can all experience through dress. Life and work in different regions of Japan inspired Leonie to translate some of the traditional principles of Japanese design for an Australian context. Timeless, sculptural silhouettes are ideal for layering, while disciplined lines and simple shapes invites creative collaboration with the wearer. Textiles of extraordinary quality are at the heart of the label, and every style is cut and constructed in Hobart with due care, creating garments to enjoy for years to come.
