Luxury Slip: Emerging Intimate Trend

Body-skimming midi-length nightdresses incorporate sheer fabrics and lace inserts and details,expressing themes of old-time glamour.

 Influence: the overtly feminine and romantic slip has been an important dress silhouette 
on the Spring/Summer 2014 catwalks according to WGSN INstock data

Fabrics & details: fluid silk satins, super-soft laces, delicately embroidered tulles, sheer and opaque panels and inserts, detailed bustier constructions, deep V-shape necklines, lace ornamental appliqué.

Colour: black is important for the dramatic boudoir look while fashion nude and beige evoke dreamy old-time glamour

Silhouette: sleek and simple bias-cut midi-length slip with lace detailing

Inspiration: for a modern take on this trend see the Elie Saab and Stella McCartney spring/summer 2014 collections, and take further inspiration from 1930s and 1940s vintage slip design

Lots of love,
Charlotte x
