Why we love the sloom dress.

I Mondo Kaos we love the wrap dress because it's a versatile dress that can be worn by everyone occasions, and because its closure is adjustable, which means that it always fits perfectly. In addition, the slogom dress is designed to highlight the feminine shapes, by i.a. to define the waist with the tie and create the silhouette with the V-shaped neckline. The slåom dress is for many women the “go to” dress, and in our opinion should be a part of all women's wardrobe.

Slåom dress history.

The Slåom dress was made iconic by designer Diane von Fürstenberg in the 70s, where it became a symbol of the women's movement, but the first Slåom dress saw the light of day back in the 1930s. In fact, the famous designer Elsa Schiaparelli made a sloppy dress in 1930, which she called an 'apron wrap dress', an effective work dress because the front of the dress could be folded over each other on both sides and thus served as a kind of apron. This meant that it could be quickly tied up and about when it got dirty in front, so the clean side was now in the front. In 1942, American fashion designer Claire McCardell created the 'pop-over' design that became the basis for several types of sloppy dresses. Fashion magazine Harper's Bazaar had created a design competition that aimed to “create something fashionable that can be worn while cleaning the house, and at the same time can also be worn to a cocktail party.” During the war, women had been given new and practical tasks and fewer funds to do well with, and therefore one had to be creative when one wanted to be fashionable.For this, the dress was perfect: it was simple to put on, good to move in, very useful, and then it had a nice, feminine cut that accentuated the shapes.MCCardell won the competition and later she also won a design award for the 'pop-over' dress.
The Slåom dress has been a part of women's wardrobes since the 1930s, due to its many uses and good cuts. Today, the sloom dress is still a popular dress model that is made in many different types, colors and prints.
