When it came to designing the range, we decided on some golden rules to work within for each silhouette…
The most iconic look of the 60’s is this mini shift, A-line dress. Such a clean and wearable design: cute, classic and feminine.
With a gentle fit into the A-line sway of the skirt, this dress looks effortless. Your choice of fabric can change your look dramatically: the matt duchess satin choice has a beautiful crisp finish. We also offer this number with a Chantilly lace overlay – a super feminine twist to a classic design. Keep your clean and simple with the high round neckline, or make it a little more ornate by adding a Peter Pan collar, or an extra layer of glamour by choosing a collar with bead work and embellishments. A solidly embellished collar, of pearls or crystal, would look fabulous on this archetypal design.
Another option – which we call the Little French Ensemble – is the stunning British woven ivory and gold tweed fabric choice. This tweed is wonderful to wear, and we’ve lined it in silk satin for extra luxury. A matching short, box shaped jacket is also available to order. We also offer this jacket design in any of the fabrics we use to coordinate with your dress. This really is a timeless combination; an ensemble you will never forget.
All dresses have hand finished bias binding bound hems and are fastened with invisible zips or covered buttons and loops.
We are working on adding a coordinating swing coat to this silhouette, and adding further fabric choices such as velvets and brocades. The Farrow could easily incorporate a sheer, balloon or fluted full length sleeve.
