Little Black Dress for 2014


2014 take on the little black dress … it always works.

Bubblegum

Little black dress is the most important item in every woman’s wardrobe. It is a universal answer to that terrible question that we repeatedly ask ourselves while desperately rummaging through the cupboard in search for the solution. Each year we need a new LBD to rescue us in those critical moments. So which one to choose in 2014?

Ruffles are going to be trendy this year, so think Dries Van Noten or Isabel Marant who designed some incredible ruffled dresses for spring and summer. The other key trend for 2014 is black lace – layers and layers of it. While Christian Bailey made some timeless lace dresses, including the black one in his Britain-obsessed pre-fall collection for Burberry Prorsum, Sharon Wauchob mixed chiffon with different kinds of lace.

I have got to say that the Klee exhibition was amazing too and particularly appealed to m y textile sensibillities due to the colours used and how they were combined  it was a mastery of colour, paint and portrayal of movements, altered realities and  emotions.  Part of my personal issue was seeing Mira Schendel’s mono-chromatic work after that was difficult, but both exhibitions are incredibly powerful in their own right.
