Staying true to form, Rodarte creates a collection of dresses that combines minimalist design with a superior construction. Maintaining the same standards of expert craftsmanship you’ve come to expect from the brand. Your silk dresses will become more beautiful with time as long you take special care when maintaining them. Well cared for silk dresses will last longer, we recommend carefully following the care instructions found on each individual item’s label. Dry cleaning silk garments isn’t always necessary, and most items are suitable for hand washing if done carefully. It is advised to clean silk using a lower temperature to other fabrics, as hot water can affect the material’s natural properties and damage to the fibers. We also recommend selecting a specially-formulated silk detergent, which will be gentler on its natural proteins. Leave to soak for a few minutes, then remove excess water by gently pressing instead of wringing or twisting as this can ruin the garment’s shape. Avoid the dryer, and allow to air dry. If machine washing is specified on the care label, choose a gentle cycle. Turn your silk garment inside out, and iron on the lowest heat while it is still damp.
