Animalistic

Balmain‘s Pre-Fall 2019 or David Koma‘s F/W 2019 collection are both boasting the animalistic trend with beaded ornates that curve from the hip up towards a single padded shoulder. Dragons or serpents, both are stunning examples of an opulent yet unfussy approach to design. Wear them with smoky eyes and your hair pinned into a bun to highlight the shoulder cutout or opt for the skirt with a turtleneck during the day.

And as usual, here is a little tip to channel the season’s dramatic sense of glamour on sale:

Time to unleash your inner snake in the Garden of Eden and to transform into a fierce, yet seductive woman.
