NEW DROP: LET’S HEAR IT FOR THE MINI
“Life is a party, dress like it” AUDREY HEPBURN
Our latest ‘MINI DROP’ is dedicated to the hedonist who loves to have fun and live in the moment … sequins, crystals, micro hemlines … this edit is extra!
Here are 11 things you should know about our brand new drop:
1. VINTAGE REFERENCES
We’re constantly inspired by archive fashion and none more so than when it comes to party looks. Expect to see strong nods to partywear through the decades; from the 60s through to Y2K core. Here's a glimpse of our moodboard:
2. THE SILK HOOD
Made iconic by Audrey Hepburn at her wedding to Andrea Dotti in the 1970s, the hood is having a major moment on the red carpet and in our studio! For the perfect ceremony look, we love it paired with STYLE 086, our shearling trimmed long sleeved mini dress.
3. CRYSTAL CORE
Fabrics are incredibly sensory and there truly is no fabric like the crystal we've used to create STYLE 080. The process of making the fabric is incredibly intricate, with each individual crystal appliquéd then cut and sewn by hand to create the dress itself. This is an incredibly luxurious haute couture fabric that takes over 90 hours to put together.
4. THE LOW HEEL
The pointy low heel is having a moment and no-one does this better than NEOUS. We are obsessed with their new IRENA heel which comes in a beautiful geometric sequin or YED, their cloth asymmetric pump which is the perfect accompaniments to any party outfit.
5. FABRICS WITH MOVEMENT
From cascades of silk chiffon through to shape-shifting silk satin, we’ve given careful thought to how each dress will look when you’re whirling around the dancefloor. We're obsessed with the elegant flowing sash on STYLE 087 which is crafted in silk chiffon and cascades from one shoulder.
6. MORE IS MORE
This collection is all about the hedonist so we styled everything with luxe fine jewellery and statement bags. We were lucky enough to work with the incredible Jessica Mccormack and big thanks to HURR who sent us an incredible selection of accessories, including this GIRATE bag that is the perfect partner for STYLE 080.

7. THE SHEER LOOK
The sheer look is a strong theme, from the big silk organza bows on STYLE 082, the chiffon sash on STYLE 087 and the beautiful crop STYLE 089 with its layers of ruffled organza.
8. DECORATIVE EMBELLISHMENTS
Details such as silk corsages and freshwater pearls give each piece a distinctive edge. Every embellishment is sewn by hand - take our silk chiffon corsage for example, with each silk chiffon petal hand cut, placed and sewn together to create a beautiful centrepiece.
9. THE ART OF THE REWEAR
We’ve given careful thought to how the pieces can be reworn afterwards, from design through to fabrication, with luxury fabrics that can be dyed and reworked afterwards. Read how to do that HERE.

Partywear should be freeing and nonchalant so our fits are loose and oversized. So many of the pieces in the new drop (STYLE 085 // DOUBLE BREASTED TUX, STYLE 080 // CRYSTAL MINI, STYLE 084 // SILK SATIN OPEN BACK) look best when the fit is nice and relaxed.
Think outside the box and work with tonal accessories. We used latex tights for STYLE 083 to create a completely unique look, while white Wolford tights lend an air of raw elegance to STYLE 084.
