It’s been quite a hectic few weeks and I’m really annoyed that my blogging has suffered because of it. But, I’m swinging back into normality and finally have time to concentrate on what I love to do most.
Every season, I’m god-smacked by the new talent which comes out of London. Going to BA/MA shows are definitely a must as students coming out of Central Saint Martins are all wonderkids- there must be something in the water there. With a standout presentation even as an undergrad, Molly Goddard is hands down a young talent to watch. So I was totally stoked to see ASOS’ first student collaboration to be with her. This is Molly’s design for the ASOS Salon range which features her signature sheer mesh overlay (another post to follow on this). But I wanted to showcase her standout slip dress which I fell in love with that is supposed to be worn under the mesh tulle. I’ve been looking for a coral/peach dress for a while but haven’t had much luck. So you can imagine my pure excitement when I opened my ASOS package to find this smock style dress. It was like in some genius way, Molly seemed to know exactly what I was looking for. It’s definitely the perfect cut with such a sweet and feminine touch that needs to be shown off. I was almost angry for the smock as it’s purpose in life is to be worn inside the tulle (which don’t get me wrong, is fab). But there are layered pieces in the world that work so perfectly as a couple but also have a strong identify of its own – the smock being an example of such a piece. So this post is like a homage to underpieces which are stunning on their own, but are created as supporting roles.
