Jewel-toned dresses in particular were the leaders of many a collection: so ladylike at Prada, alluring at Dries Van Noten—and designer label Nancy Mac, reviewed here in their latest Autumn-Winter Collection. This designer adds Italian edge and bold colour to the new mood in dresses which, vintage inspired, are sweeping in a whole new aesthetic.
If you want to be an instantaneous hit, opt for a rich red wine look. Here, the romantic Rosewood lace Kristen knee-length dress warms up a cool classic in claret and currant while creating a seductive silhouette. The effect works by day and night, creating a two-tone jewel effect. In hand-finished lace with scalloped-edged hem, the Kristen has a flattering in-vogue v-neck, cap sleeves, panelled skirt and mid-calf length. The effect is richly romantic.
