Muted or jewelled, pleated or crushed, Velvet is the fabric to be seen in this season
Spotted all over the AW18 runways, velvet has this amazing ability to transform an everyday look into something much more romantic and glitzy without being too over-the-top. Whether it’s fashioned into a sophisticated blazer or a glamorous gown, the opulent fabric is the perfect way to add a little festive touch to your winter wardrobe.
This blazer from Etro works equally well for the office as it does slipped over a dress for your next night out. It’s tailored from plush velvet and lined in smooth satin that’s printed with the label’s recognisable paisley swirls.
Exclusive to Mytheresa, Roland Mouret’s Comberton dress is crafted from bordeaux-hued velvet and black crêpe. It features a nipped-in waist for signature hourglass shape and longer sleeves for flattering coverage. Wear yours into the evening with kitten heels and a sleek shoulder bag.
