Relaxed Fit. 100% Linen.
Wild Paisley is thrilled to introduce our first, curated collection from wonderful, eclectic Melbourne brand, Manteau Noir.
The beautiful Charlotte wrap dress is an ideal high summer piece made from a medium-weight, pre-washed linen. It features an Indienne style print in soft, pastel hues that was inspired by a French document from the 1800s and designed exclusively for Manteau Noir.
Created with versatility and wearability in mind, this pretty dress can be worn in two ways - wrapped across the body with the V-neck at the front, or in reverse with the round neckline at the front and deep V at the back. Unlike most wrap dresses, the Charlotte has a relaxed cut with a loose-fitting bodice and lightly gathered skirt giving it a bit of a vintage feel. Featuring adjustable spaghetti straps, 2 sets of adjustable side ties at the waist to allow cinching, and concealed side pockets. Made in India.
The Charlotte is designed to be worn in a relaxed fashion. If you prefer a more structured fit, we recommend taking 1 size down from your usual size. As a guideline, the featured model is a Size 8, 177cm tall and is wearing a Small. Please contact us if you would like further information on sizing.

Her garments convey a feeling of authenticity both in cut, quality of manufacturing and choice of fabric that bring a sense of pleasure and comfort to the wearer. Victoria's collections embody her personal philosophy of "buy less, buy better" and are characterized by their utilitarian, relaxed and pared back style.
