British High Street retailer, Miss Selfridge just launched a premium dress line inspired by the brand’s extensive vintage archive. Inspired by fashion from the 1920’s – 1980’s, every dress is hand beaded making each piece unique in itself and no one dress the same. The new collection is 22 limited edition dresses with prices ranging from $87.00 – $267.00. Creative Director Yasmin Yusuf has scoured the world’s vintage markets and delved into the brand’s archive to inspire the collection. Working with the in-house design team her discoveries have been reworked to create a modern, wearable range.
Vintage style embellishment adorns the collection, inspired by prohibition era flapper dresses and couture gowns. Silhouettes range from 60s shifts to fishtail maxis to create an eclectic range. Scallop edge embellishment in pastel pinks and berry hues adds a pretty vibe while vibrant block colours create impactful glamour. Styled with a biker jacket for a rock edge or which chic classic accessories, these pieces will take you through the party season seamlessly.
Deco Beaded Maxi Dress
If you’re looking for unrivalled glamour and style, the Deco Bead Maxi Dress is the piece for you. A flowing style in champagne and noir, the gown features a cascading mermaid train while swirl beading delivers a jaw-dropping finish. Take centre stage with nothing more than this dress, a sultry smile and ample amounts of evening attitude.
Animal Bodycon Dress
We love the armour-like appeal that carefully placed beading adds to this stunning LBD. The capped sleeved, fitted bodycon style has been crafted at the waist to create the illusion of a brilliantly cinched in waist. A deep scoop V-neck enjoys a stunning beaded trim for extra cocktail hour allure.
Beaded Stripe Panel Dress
A glamorous, but tough-luxe take on a classic LBD. This relaxed silhouette comes finished with a web of icy silver beads and glittering sequins. The hem is cut to sweep across the thigh, while a round neckline and slinky shape add to its nonchalant appeal. Pile on silver chain jewellery in different lengths and styles for a biker-chick finish that’s as bold as it is beautiful.
Black Roberta Bodycon Dress
The Black Roberta Bodycon is a spectacular take on the classic LBD. The close-to-the-body fit is designed to hug the body’s natural curves, while layers of shimmering sequins and metallic beads are intensified with golden disc panels. Dip your talons into stacks of silver jewellery for a chic, tough-luxe finish.
Layla Maxi Dress
Meet Layla — gothic glamour personified. Her figure-flattering silhouette creates fabulous feminine curves, while the palette of deepest noir adds a Bond Girl-esque aesthetic. Slink around the dancefloor as if you’ve been dipped in oil then scattered with diamonds — a truly high impact dress that involves minimum additional effort. Try heels, a simple cuff and your finest smoky eye finish.
Danielle Drop Back Dress
Fall for Danielle’s heart-stopping beauty by way of intricate sequin-encrusted detailing, delicate diaphanous fabric and a plunging back design. With a wonderful weight and swishy silhouette we’d recommend wearing this piece alone with pretty ‘50s underwear for something standout and stunning, or with a bralet, shredded jeans and biker jacket for a brilliantly rock chick finish.
