Richard Allan x HM

Described as ‘wearable art’, the Richard Allan collaboration with H&M is a collection not to be missed.

Considered a staple of the swinging sixties, Richard Allan was an iconic accessories designer, who worked with the likes of Yves Saint Laurent and Schiaparelli. Now over 50 years on, his stunning designs have been revived in a collaboration with H&M to bring his work to a brand new audience.

Long silhouettes, high necklines and eye catching prints create a stunning high street collaboration in spirit of the swinging sixties. Despite wanting the entire collection, I showed some self-restraint and opted for the beautiful long-sleeved satin dress.

This patterned calf-length dress has a small stand-up collar and V-neck, with a concealed button at the front. Its elegant silhoutte has a tie belt at the waist with a flared skirt.

Such a statement piece requires minimal styling, so I finished this look with black sock boots and my go-to patent grab bag.
