Ted Baker’s latest collection – My Favourite piece

September 29th, 2012


I’ve fallen in love with a dress, a dream of a dress that has a divine, mystical feel to it. The sort of dress that Mila Kunis or Carey Mulligan would look just amazing in, standing out on the red carpet full of cookie cutter pretty dresses. This dress is the perfect, standout Christmas party piece – it would stand out in a room fall of sequins with the sheer beauty of the design and the originality of the print. The dress is the Peera dress, and it is part of the latest range, the Langley Collection, from Ted Baker.

The Peera dress combines a traditional bustier style bodice that resembles a traditional formal evening gown. With the tie bow detail on the waistband, you could be forgiven for expecting a black taffeta skirt to complete the look. Instead what you get is a mystical fairy tale, complete with a beautiful unicorn and botanical prints in muted shades of pink and yellow. The full, flowing skirt is almost floor sweeping, giving the whole look a majestic presence. This dress is just so beautiful, you can’t help but fall in love with it, and I think it will be the total standout look of the new collection.

This dress doe not look the sort of piece you would buy from a High Street Brand, instead imagine what would happen if Peter Pilotto’s digital, celestial prints were merged with those famous and now iconic Stella McCartney Horse prints from a few seasons ago.  But there is more to this dress than just an exquisite print. The bodice would both help to create and enhance curves, whilst the maxi skirt means that this is perfect for those who want to embrace the full length and fabulous, and also for those who prefer longer skirts due to not liking their knees, ankles etc.

The Peera dress will be hitting stores very soon – I expect to see Katherine Jenkins first in the queue!

  1. That is very beautiful as often TB can be with prints. However like other high street brands, TB is small in fitting so not many of the designs fit we (ahem) more buxom ladies, which is a shame. Not to worry, don’t really have an occasion for wearing something so ethereal – even not just for best!!!

  2. Not my cup of tea so to speak. My first thought was Kristen Stewart (am not a fan of her)- vampires, but also unicorns, Lion Witch and Wardrobe. Less magical more nightmare!
    I also agree with Jackie re TB’s sizing. I dont tend to buy TB but have had a couple of accessories i.e handbags. G

      I just love it – it is so unusual and really takes the eye. I actually saw this dress on sale in Selfridges on Saturday and loved it even more – the skirt was so delicate.
