funkis saga cami dress black linen cotton
funkis saga cami dress, in black linen cotton
DESIGNED AND MADE IN AUSTRALIA
Re-introducing a funkis classic for SS19, our Saga cami dress has been edited. Featuring a thicker strap, with a square neckline, the saga dress falls just below the knee. The dress is intended to be more fitted across the bust with an a-line skirt. Layer the dress in the cooler months with a t-shirt or turtleneck or wear with our beautiful sofia wrap blouse over the top.
- COLOUR: BLACK
- LINEN/ COTTON BLEND
- INVISIBLE SIDE ZIPPER
- DESIGNED AND MADE IN AUSTRALIA
We recommend that you size up if you have a larger bust as it is a small fit across the chest. We have also kept excess fabric on the straps so you can have them tailored if you wish the dress to sit lower.
HOW TO MEASURE YOUR BODY
- Measure your chest over the fullest part of your bust while wearing a bra that fits.
- Measure your waist at the narrowest point.
- Your lower hip measurement should be measured around the fullest part of your low hip/bottom
Standard Guide Clothing
funkis is an Australian design company based in Sydney with strong Swedish influences. Part of our range is some of the best Swedish and Scandinavian designs complemented by our own collection of clothing, shoes and accessories.
The word Funkis is an abbreviation of the Swedish word "funktionalism" which refers to the Functionalist style developed in the early 20 century. It was not only an architectural and furniture concept, it represented a whole new movement "to change the world". Everything was to be changed, the whole society, from town planning, architecture, furniture down to the very way people lived. The world at this point had a very positive outlook on the future and the big change industrialisation could bring to not only the rich but everyone in society.
For world famous Swedish Architects like Gunnar Asplund, a lot of what he did was built on his love for the democracy. He believed that the way the cities were built in the future should benefit everyone, to give everyone "a place in the sun" (“funkis stilen som byggde Sverige” Ingrid Sommar. Forum). This thinking is the very base for “funkis Swedish forms” as a business idea.
funkis own design
The funkis ethos is based around customers who now demand style and sustainability, not only within the manufacturing process, but also within every aspect of a business. By manufacturing our clothing & jewellery in Australia, bags & shoes in Sweden, we can rely on Australia’s (and Sweden’s) industrial policies in combination with our own approach to a more sustainable business model, this way we can assure certain ethical standards are met.
Most of our design is deliberately timeless, our clogs and sandals have been part of our collection since 1996. We produce small runs to respond to demand from our customers and to create minimal wastage. We use sustainable sourced materials for our clogs and bags and end of runs fabrics for our clothing collection. Excellent quality in both design and material is essential to funkis and makes it possible for us to create a product our customers can wear for a long time.
