Love-Want-Need: Michael Kors stretch-wool dress

22 Dec

The soft draping,  light taupe colour, cinched waist and asymmetric hem just makes this an instant TDF (to die for) piece. With a dress like this, Michael Kors is fast becoming a permanent favourite.

The fit is perfection. And as always, great styling by Net-a-porter, the coral Mulberry bag gives the look a pop of colour.

I thought of one more way to style it, dialled up the glam a bit, with a python bag and Lanvin bracelet.

Whichever way it’s styled, it’s a stunning dress and it’s available on Net-a-porter

For the love of all things draped

7 Dec

There’s an allure about draping that I find sleek and stylish. Nothing like that elegant, flowing, Grecian feel, and knowing that it takes great tailoring plus attention to detail to achieve the perfectly draped piece. It says ladylike luxe at its best.

I have my favourite designers for those classic, fluid, draping styles that cascade down the  feminine form in such glorious luxeness.

I love love love Anglomania by Vivienne Westwood, the asymmetric, draping aesthetic is simply exquisite – with just the right portion of edginess. I have big plans to collect Anglomania dresses.

Vionnet and RM by Roland Mouret also make the most decadently exquisite draped pieces; with dresses perfectly flattering the feminine form.

Karen Millen is as exquisite as it gets on the high street. The tailoring is flawless and draping done to perfection, it could easily pass for high-end designer gear. I especially love the coat, I mean, how do you get it right with a fabric that thick?

We can’t deny the sartorial perfection of Alexander McQueen, so it’s no surprise that the label gives us some generous draping; from both diffusion line McQ and the main line.
