For bold-shouldered options, turn to Chloé and Jacquemus, while Givenchy and Louis Vuitton showcased office-ready cowl necks. Valentino even presented a modern-day goddess’s office attire: a halter dress that cascades over contrasting trousers, offering a contemporary nod to the 2024 corporate scene.

However, the summer draping trend transcends a mere seasonal whim. It garnered attention last summer and continued to dominate the recent autumn-winter runways. Draping is not just a technique but an art form, akin to the grand Hellenistic sculptures that portray deities in seamlessly flowing robes.

The reason draping is not just a passing fad is because it delves into the synergy between fabric and silhouette, intertwined with the meticulous craftsmanship of a piece. Choosing a draped dress revolves around its design. Draping details not only flatter the figure but also impart a sense of deliberate construction, which give it a sophisticated flair, regardless of the price point. Indeed, even if opting for a mid-market piece, this style still exudes the allure of a significant investment every time.
