Astrid Dress - Rust



The Astrid dress dress sits beautifully in viscose which has a slight weighty drape quality. This elegant, relaxed style features a wide scoop neck and a coiled cross over V shaped detail. Drawstring at the waist can be pulled in or left relaxed. The sleeves finish at 1/2 length and the hem sits at the knee.

'The Lost Pink Valley.' The Hindu Kush, the Pink and White Terraces, the past, all tinted rose and all lost today. Ingrid Starnes’ AW17 collection travels through places unreachable, with a romantic sadness and celebration. Fashion writer Eric Newby wrote a wonderful book, ‘A Short Walk in the Hindu Kush’, of his explorations in the 1950s of areas that are now Taliban controlled. You’ll still find the pink valleys and vast glaciers he describes, but out of reach. The collection also draws inspiration from the textures of the artist Mona Hartoum who explores territories like this, her Lebanon and Palestine. What we have now is special, and not forever. Imagination and memory,bespoke prints, embroidery, colours and textures make up an ephemeral story of beauty, hue and silhouette.
