With designers like Valentino and Chloe creating amazing broderie Anglaise dresses and Oscar De La Renta’s wedding dress on the runway, who can blame me for grabbing this matchy-matchy Broderie Anglaise white lace cropped top and skirt set from Zara.
Broderie Anglaise in French means “English embroidery” and it is a whitework needlework technique incorporating features of embroidery, cutwork and needle lace that became associated with England, due to its popularity there in the 19th century.
White lace is the name of the fashion game this Spring. One of Spring’s hottest trends… lace skirts, tops and dresses where all over the runways.
Romantic threadwork, whether sheer and tiered at Erdem, thigh-skimming in frilled layers at Givenchy, or sleek and seventies at Louis Vuitton.
“It is modern folklore inspired by historical textiles and fabrics that tell stories,” said creative director Clare Waight Keller about his Chloe’s Spring 2015 lace dresses.
I could emulate the Valentino show styling by pairing the white lace cropped top and skirt set with lace-up gladiator sandals, yeah, got those too, from Isabel Marant but I went for the Aquazzura ankle suede boots instead.
It is still Spring and we are celebrating Easter in this part of the world!
The Christian Louboutin wallet cross-body bag was from the Joseph sale in London back in February.
I am wearing the skirt with the matching top for a Sunday lunch but I plan to clash it up with a slouchy sweater, a classic button-down or a T-shirt and leather jacket. Probably sneakers too.
Loving lace right now…
Depending on how you wear it, it works for pretty much any occasion day or night…
