The Block Pareo is a fabulous, soft cotton poplin pareo, inspired by the mecca of breeze blocks, Palm Springs, or as the midcentury architect William Krisel christened them, functional ornamentation. The humble concrete ornamental block had many functions in the 1960's. Their official purpose was to filter the sun and wind but everyone knew that their real purpose was to offer privacy for all the of the naughty goings-on with the golden era Hollywood set who escaped to Palm Springs from the glare of the all-powerful studios. Her measurements are 140cm x 140cm which makes her a dream to style as she can be worn in a myriad of ways. Wrap over a dreamy swimsuit and grab a Pink Gin.
