Fendi Karl Lagerfeld S/S 2008 Runway Black Cut Out Suede Dress Cape Skirt Set

About the Item

Helmed by the notorious Karl Lagerfeld, Fendi began as a luxury fur and leather goods label and overtime transitioned to be widely successful in the ready-to-wear market. The Spring 2008 collection was highly contemporary featuring curvilinear lines and fluidly draped silhouettes in stark neutrals. This three-piece dress set captures the second half of the collection being comprised of an appliquéd tulle cape, a matching mini-dress and a white habotai underskirt. Made from a fine crème silk tulle, the capelet features several black lines of appliqué that create a butterfly-like display as it swings around the arms and shoulders. At the neckline, it can be secured by one button and openly falls to the waistline in the front and rises to about bust point in the back allowing for ease of motion when worn. The mini dress is incredibly made from the same crème silk tulle with the black suede strips appliquéd. The strips graduate from narrow at the straight neckline to denser as the pattern culminates at the waist. From the waist, this pattern is replicated as the number of rings increases as they approach the skirt’s undulating hem at just above knee level. Practically, the dress has two suede straps and closes with a side zip. Lastly, the underskirt falls to the low calf so it can be seen from underneath the dress. Done in an ivory habotai, the white softens the tone of the ensemble. It is lined with three layers of tulle that support the silhouette while slightly modifying the visual tone of the habotai outer layer. The A-line skirt features two co-centric ring appliqué details at each side seam done in an antiqued white color that reflect the black suede lines in the other two pieces. It fits promptly at the waist with a wide waistband that closes at centre back with two buttons and an invisible zip. Selections from this ensemble work beautifully as separates or can be worn together to maximize the optical effect created by the linear appliqués.

  • Lanvin Alber Elbaz Resort 2012 Gold & Silver Gown
    By Lanvin Paris
    Located in Boca Raton, FL
    Moroccan-born designer Alber Elbaz is remembered as much for his love of people as he is for his astounding talent and creative philosophy. Credited with revitalizing the French fashion house of Lanvin where he served as creative director for fourteen years, he preferred to think of himself as a storyteller, working with “intuition, instinct, and joy.” Widely beloved and admired, the soft-spoken Elbaz lamented in an interview for Vogue how technology was changing the face of fashion, with the emphasis shifting from how designs felt in person to how they appeared on a screen. Referring to himself as “just Alber” the designer explained that one of his intentions with fashion was “to elevate people, to make them dream." The beauty of his legacy lies not only in the remarkable garments he designed but also in the spirit of them, his work conveying a certain depth of feeling that often shines through the wearer, emphasizing his belief that “the real Haute Couture is when you work with a person.” As seen as look #6 on that season’s runway, this beautiful gown from his 2012 Lanvin Resort Collection speaks for itself. Done in metallic lame silk featuring artfully arranged patterns of silver, gold, and deep purple stripes, this billowy dress is glamorous and comfortable at once. The bodice is introduced with thin gold spaghetti straps and a straight neckline, creating a languid chic effect that continues throughout and is complemented by two concealed side pockets. The oversized, elastic-fitted waist flows into a magnificently draped, supermodel-length long skirt that cascades past the ankles and moves beautifully with the wearer. Size estimate: SML Size: 36 FR Measurements: Bust: 34 inches Waist: elastic stretches to 30 inches Hips: Full Length: 67 inches long This incredible gown exudes a seductive goddess glam chic that is further enhanced by its dramatic length, volume, and glimmering lame thread, giving the eye something new to appreciate at each angle. The beauty of this dress lies in its simplicity, the classic silhouette and open décolletage proving the perfect medium to deliver an unforgettable dress that can easily be worn to a museum gala or beach wedding...

  • JW Anderson Silk Macrame Wood Beaded Fringe Dress Runway Spring 2019
    By J W Anderson
    Located in Boca Raton, FL
    British designer JW Anderson is a trailblazer in the contemporary fashion market. With a vast array of unique collections and collaborations, Anderson’s aesthetic offers a much-needed reorientation of fashion by combining elements of timeless tailoring and artisanal handicraft. Following this vision for his Spring 2019 collection, this macramé dress is a perfect testament to design that is both simple and complex. The bodice of the dress is a combination of white and anthracite crepe de chine. The liquid fabric drapes beautifully over the shoulders creating a mock-shawl effect while the white and grey provide a sophisticated contrast. On one of the sleeves, the grey crepe is ruched while the other is split at the shoulder. This asymmetry provides additional interest to the very geometric lattice beading on the front of the bodice. The skirt is slightly pegged and is done from a neutral linen underlayer and a macramé overskirt that incorporates wooden beading in the mix of the knotting. The skirt finishes with a band of widely spaced fringe. The combination of raw edges, wood, and natural tones, paired with the modern silkiness of the grey crepe give this dress a refreshing and serene vibe. It can be worn for a casual day dress...
