Wallis will be launching a new collection on April 18th. Called the 1923 collection, this is a glorious collection of day dresses and accessories that take their cues from the 1950s. Think Gwyneth Paltrow and Cate Blanchett in ‘The Talented Mr Ripley’, Julianne Moore in ‘Far from Heaven’ and Doris Day in just about EVERYTHING!
There are five beautiful dresses in the collection. These are bright coloured, with full skirts and nipped in waistbands. There are a range of prints, and the colour clashes are a nod to this season’s ongoing trend, with blue teamed with both green and orange.
The prints have been sourced from the Wallis archives to give the dresses a real vintage feel. The collection also has the perfect cream cardigan that could be matched with all the dresses, and pretty rose print flats that would also look great teamed with jeans.
I love all the dresses and think you really need to invest in at least one for the upcoming season. Whether you are enjoying afternoon tea during the Royal wedding, attending a summer barbecue, a guest at a wedding, or enjoying a day at the races – there is a dress in the collection that would suit every occasion. A ll you need to add is white gloves for a truly ladylike look!
