With places to go, people to see and plans to make, the collection creates outfit solutions for life’s every moment, from immaculate tailoring to the elusive ‘24-hour’ dress and high-octane eveningwear, designed to dazzle.
Bold, glamorous and considered, the collection packs a punch, with silhouette-loving shapes, vivacious prints and sumptuous fabrics across two key themes: Come Undone and Feminine Grandeur.
Tactile velvet and faux fur take centre stage alongside opulent embroidery, power ruffles and our signature detailing, as imagined at our in-house atelier, while pops of red, teal, gold and magenta command attention – just like you.
Come Undone reworks softly structured silhouettes with draped liquid satins and fresh tailored cottons, folding, draping and belting giving essential wardrobe staples a refresh. Corsetry draws the eye to the waist on shirts, dresses and sleek tailoring, cinched with belts and shown off with reveal-and-conceal cut-outs.
Graphic lines give a sport-luxe twist to grey melange knits and fresh asymmetric one-shoulder tops, while sharp tailoring is tempered with technical fabrications and sporty elements for a thoroughly contemporary refresh.
Feminine Grandeur showcases effervescent soft frills and volume constructed from rich satins and velvet lurex jacquards – a lavish and contemporary approach to dressing up. A season of extremes, necklines are high or asymmetric, while lengths are either maxi or micro. Reminiscent of stylish days gone by, tailoring nods to the 1980s with sculptural shoulders, while a slouched drape effect takes its cue from the 1990s. The cold-shoulder remains a key look for the season, updated with one sleeve on structured party dresses, while silky-smooth faux fur offers a sumptuous way to wrap up against the chill once the party’s over.
Bags come quilted, studded and cross-body, in practical and pretty new proportions for the season. Boots come with sharply powerful metal heels, while evening shoes are encrusted with sparkling jewels in a colour palette of winter berry and midnight teal, anchored with ivory, black and neutral.
