Last week ELLEUK.com made a discovery in their lingerie article (which also featured our lace set) : “midnight blue underwear is the most flattering shade you can wear – whether worn against milky white or olive brown skin it is utterly alluring. Not as harsh as black, but richer and sexier than paler shades.” Well, not that I´m bragging here, but we already knew that! That was the exact reason why we added dark blue to our summer collection.
As you know I am trying and testing all styles on myself and this summer I have become hooked on our navy Helen Lace Wrap. I think over the summer I´ve taken it everywhere – to the beaches in Spain, to the London College of Fashion graduates show and a chic wedding in Cyprus. I even tried seducing my boyfriend with it (hint: match it with the Silvia and Maike Lace set). I´ve been literally living in it. The gown is versatile and can be easily taken from a very posh to a much more relaxed setting, while looking glamorous all the way. Of course it´s not missing our typical quirky touch and the patent shoulder and pocket detailing with the tiny bows give it a modern edge.
Navy trend has definitely had its moment this summer but we believe that it´s here to stay longer. We haven´t got enough of the colour and while this summer we´ve showed it in a more playful way then for the AW12 collection we will bring out it´s even more glamorous side. Mixing navy with black and gold. Classic.
Here´s a teaser from the new collection launching in September 2012. Diana Monarch Wrap – Limited Edition and totally worth queueing for.
