Martin Margiela Black Draped Jersey Dress

Buyer Protection Guaranteed

About

This is a beautiful Little Black Dress from the house of Martin Margiela. Classic and simple, it is made elegant by the delicate draping of fabric diagonally across the body. The folds run from the upper ribs across to the hip, and from there sweep down across the upper legs, flattering this section of the body and drawing the eye down the figure. The above-the-knee length is flattering and easy to wear, and the extra-long raglan sleeves are both cozy and elegant. The main detail in the dress, however, lies at the neckline, where a section of the boat neck has been folded down to give a beautiful glimpse of collarbone. The sharp angle formed by the collar here sets off the smooth curves of the rest of the dress, providing a wonderful tension which makes this classic LBD something special. As a versatile staple, this is sure to be a new favourite!
