Description

1920s-style slip dress in French lurex with long ties and gold-plated insect cufflinks. 

Cut from liquid lurex and inspired by a 1930s sensibility, a glossy, glistening gown ripples with drape and movement. Featuring a plunging V neckline and gathered cups, the dress reveals a diamond shape at the centre front designed to contour the body.

Holding the dress together is an intricate, Art Nouveau-inspired C.H. insignia, plated in yellow gold and anchored by colour-matched, gradient powder-coated baubles. The resulting finish is almost suspender-like, bringing an unexpected twist to the piece. The adjustable straps are cut with extra length so that they cascade loosely down the back, adding another layer of movement - they will carelessly drape as the wearer walks. Securing the straps are tiny removable insect cufflinks, finished in plated yellow gold and colour-matched gradient powder coated bodies. The final element of surprise and delight, the cufflinks can be worn to adjust the strap length or taken from the dress to add a touch of C.H. to an everyday shirt.
