Maxi Drama: Luxurious, gorgeous Sibi Maxi Dress in Deep Red Silk Velvet from the Nancy Mac Collection


Designers have returned to opulence on the catwalks and velvet take centre stage and lengths fall to the floor. Jewel-toned maxis in particular are the leaders of many a collection—and designer label Nancy Mac, reviewed here in their latest Silk Velvet Collection.

The red dress is well-known for its anti-ageing powers, and here a length of cool-girl velvet just reached fever pitch. This is the shapely new long draped deep red velvet gown, perhaps the ultimate red dress for this season.

Heartbreakingly glamorous, the deep red velvet dress is cut on the bias for shape and flattery, the Thirties-style panelled skirt offsetting the flattering soft v-neckline and gently ruched sleeves. Pulling out all the fashion stops has never been such a powerful move for a special occasion.

Silk and natural viscose. Length 155cm. Sizes UK 8-18.
