A couple of weeks ago, I was sent the most gorgeous psychedelic orange and pink floral silk dress designed by London Fashion Week designer Richard Nicoll in collaboration with Tropicana, yep the juice guys to launch their new Trop50, a more delicious, healthier orange juice.
Granted the collaboration might seem a little strange – a fashion designer and a juice brand, but what is great about them both teaming up is that this limited edition dress, only 50 have been made in homage to the Trop50 brand name, is that this brightly coloured dress, which screams sunshine, is also doing its bit for charity as all the profits from the dress goes directly to Fashion Targets Breast Cancer.
I really wanted to do a style post, the weather hasn’t really been playing ball with me, as this is one gorgeous summery dress. Not only do I love the 60′s inspired print, the contrasting orange back, and that it is Nicoll’s trademark Stella t-shirt dress design, but I wanted to put the one size fits all design with its billowing and oversized silhouette to the test. Apparently it is suppose to flatter any shape and size and as soon as the sun puts his hat on I will be sure to road test this silk beauty.
The dress is currently on sale exclusively at Atelier-to-go.com, a new luxury site that I had the pleasure of getting to know over fashion week at The Apartment, and is priced £555, but don’t forget all profits raised go to Fashion Targets Breast Cancer, the leading charity fashion campaign by Breakthrough Breast Cancer.
So how would you still this bold, billowing dress? I was thinking nude accessories – a strappy pair of heels and a cute clutch.
