The Eid celebrations are fast approaching and our thoughts turn to the gowns that will keep us looking stylish through one of the most important dates on the calendar. We bring you our pre-Fall edit of the gowns you need to know about.
A time for celebration calls for just the right gown but where to begin? Regal notes abound in Alexander McQueen’s pre-Fall offering of high-necked lace and full-length silhouettes – a precursor to the Victoriana that infused Sarah Burton’s AW15 collection for the house. For something that speaks to the heady last days of summer, Gucci’s abstract blooms and prettily capped sleeves combine elegant insouciance with evening drama. Or look to make an impact in ruby red courtesy of Michael Kors, a designer who knows the importance of being dressed for any occasion, with a ballerina-length bustier gown elevated by delicate ruched embellishments. This is the moment to contemplate saying goodbye to summer and glide into Fall.
