The Lea Dress was inspired by a dress worn by Lea Seydoux in the James Bond film Spectre, and we originally released it with Issue 2 of the Lisa Comfort Magazine.

With a 1940s design that also resonates with a classic 1990s style, Lea is a button-up tea dress that never goes out of style.

The dress features a V-neck bodice fitted with waist darts on the front and back and a panelled skirt that drapes gently around the hips and is made for twirling! The short sleeves are finished with turn ups, and the dress is fastened with buttons all the way down the front.
