A summer of Roksanda Ilincic

In the month she unveiled her 2012 Cruise collection with the brief ‘Effortless Glamour’ it seems fitting that Serbian Born, London-based designer Roksanda Ilincic should transfer some of that glamour to the High Street. Her first capsule collection for Debenhams has just been launched, under the RI label. This is an evening wear collection made up of five different styles of dress, from chic cocktail styles to full length and fabulous draped gowns.

After viewing the collection, I can truly say that I’m in love.  Using a pallet of black and white as a base, this is a stunning collection of utterly wearable yet totally glamorous dresses. From chic but modern prom dresses in monochrome stripes, to full length evening dresses in tulle with applique detailing, these are dresses for every special occasion. I personally adore the yellow strapless cocktail dress, which looks like it was taken from Betty Draper’s wardrobe, whilst  the little black dress has a timeless quality to it.

Debenhams need to be applauded for keeping their finger on the pulse and working with Roksanda Ilincic at the present time, because this is one hot designer. From Michelle Obama on her recent UK visit, to Gwyneth Paltrow, Emily Blunt, Michelle Monaghan and Florence Welch, Roksanda is currently dressing all  the stars in her faultless designs. Her  cruise collection contains some looks that would be perfect for the Duchess of Cambridge on her upcoming tour. This RI collection is full of investment pieces that would add lustre to any wardrobe.
