A Modern, Vintage Elegance

Shown at the Royal Institute of British Architects, with under 150 guests, Emilia Wickstead is definately one of the most exclusive shows of the season. Having dressed the likes of Kate Middleton, Wickstead takes inspiration from shows in 1940s Paris, having referred to detailed shots from Balenciaga’s archive, giving the look a feel that’s just, “so now.” As ankle length full skirts and dresses are just as key and obsessive as lace, peplum, and a basic Trenchcoat were. Now I won’t feel Amish if I ever wear my ankle length plaid skirt out and about, anytime soon.
