trapeze dress

Simplicity with a twist : the new trapeze dress delivers a little swish with plenty of pragmatism. Full length raglan sleeves and subtle A-line flare create ease of movement and a comfortable fit, with a small pleat detail at the centre front.

A high, wide collar with an artful half-twist gives you a strong silhouette, amplifying the beauty of this textile in its drapes and folds. The trapeze is the answer to dressing in under 5 minutes without aesthetic compromise – and it even has pockets…

This dress pairs perfectly with one of our collarless ballad or gallery coats for long-line layering.

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.
