The Tara Matthews Porto dress is made in the softest silk crepe and in our signature Corsican L’Oeil de Sainte Lucie shell print. The shape is super versatile and can be worn several ways, strapless (straps tucked in), tied on the shoulders, and halter style (the front to straps tied around the neck and the other two tucked in the back). In some cases, depending on height, can also be worn as a maxi skirt.
The Tara Matthews “Made in Corsica” collection is a limited series and all pieces are made in an atelier in Corsica.
100 % Silk.
The “L’Oeil de Sainte Lucie” is derived from a Corsican legend and claims to protect against the evil eye and bring good luck. The shells in this print were all found over the years by Tara’s family on local Corsican beaches and subsequently Corsican photographer, Mr. Azara collaborated to create this print.
