A quiet exuberance and spring-time play in dress - halfway divided between a full romantic feminine embrace and the more masculine balance of architectural lines - frill as detail, has a multitude of interpretations that though timeless in its use in tailoring, will always make a statement.
From the oversized to the more subtle decorative hum or a ruffled hem, cuff or neckline, we love the contradiction of elements within the juxtaposition of genders and the varying degrees of personality expressed in a layered, textured, ruffled edge.
For the opulent almost Shakespearean beauty of decorative overlays in full length gowns, keep accessories and makeup simple looking to fresh dewy skin, faintly tinted lips, swept back (or softly tousled) hair, a simple shoe and slim line fit. For the more adventurous at heart, look to adaptations of frills in other kinds of dress…dramatic sleeve details in oversized separated - architectural extension of tailoring that defy expectation but will no doubt impress and have a greater range of pairings from a fringed heel to a columned shoe, simple sandal or on-trend mule.
