SANTA YNEZ, August 31, 2023 - (IN)LARKIN®, a women’s luxury fashion brand known for its innovative and inclusive designs, is proud to introduce a collection of packable, suitcase-friendly staples perfect for any occasion. Featuring five versatile dresses that each showcase a uniquely perfect blend of comfort, glamour, and timeless style, this collection promises to keep the wearer comfortable and looking chic all year long. Carefully crafted from machine-washable fabrics that hold their shape and take up minimal space in luggage, these dresses promise to be great travel companions for any adventure.

The first dress in this collection is destined to be a new favorite piece to pull on and go. The Drunk Stripe Dress is a year-round staple, featuring 4-way stretch fabric that feels and fits amazing, ensuring all-day comfort and confidence. With its handkerchief hem and bias directional stripes, the dress accentuates curves and elongates the frame, making it a flattering choice for any body type. Convenient on-seam pockets make for a practical addition to this travel-friendly dress. Embrace the carefree vibes of the Drunk Stripe Dress, the go-to choice for both exciting adventures and leisurely days.

Continuing the theme of stripes, the Wingspan Dress 2.0 takes a best-selling style and updates it with a fresh twist. This classic day dress is transformed into a contemporary fashion statement through the strategic use of stripes. By utilizing vertical stripes to elongate the body, bias stripes to flatter the figure, and horizontal stripes to create eye-catching accents, this sporty style effortlessly combines fashion and functionality. The tailored fitting at the chest, cascading fit, and empire top contribute to the dress's unique appeal. Whether paired with sandals or sneakers, the Wingspan Dress 2.0 exudes effortless style.

The last striped piece in the collection, the Cody Dress is a true masterpiece that embodies comfort and glamour at its core. Its unique play on stripes adds interest and flatters the figure with directional lines. Vertical stripes make up the majority of the dress to elongate the body, creating a longer and leaner silhouette. Additionally, bias stripe insets at the bottom enable the alluring drape and draw the eye down the figure. This dress is an absolute show-stopper, ensuring both comfort and sophistication. 

The solid-colored sister of the Cody Dress, the Sharyn Dress is a firecracker of style and elegance, named after the vivacious sister of the designer. This statement piece offers a burst of boldness with its eye-catching, bias-cut seams. The fitted bodice lovingly embraces curves, while the flared skirt kisses the floor, creating a delightful drape. Designed to ignite sparks wherever it goes, this sexy dress is an absolute knockout, exuding confidence and allure.

Inspired by the best-selling Royal Tuck Top, the Royal Tuck Dress introduces a flirty and fun new silhouette. The dress features a demure-yet-sexy V-neck and tuck design in the front, complementing the décolleté and defining the chest. A keyhole cutout in the back shows just the right amount of skin and keeps the wearer cool. This dress moves with ease and exudes effortless elegance for every body type.

In addition to the five new dresses mentioned above, the Mariposa Dress is a longtime favorite that continues to have a place of honor amongst the current collection. Crafted with form-fitting, yet body-flattering fabric, this dress is the pinnacle of sophistication. Designed to enhance the female form, this dress is the perfect replacement for the Little Black Dress - and it comes in other colors, too!
