As I look out of the office window and gaze across the grey London skyline, one fact seems to be for certain; the long sweltering hot summer we’ve had in the city is coming to a drab and dreary end. Brace yourselves everyone, winter is coming! Thank goodness that Whistle and Wolf’s new Autumn/Winter collection has arrived, providing some much- needed brightness throughout the drizzle! Here are three of my favourite pieces from the new collection and some of the inspiration behind them…
Jade is a must-have colour trend this season, and our embroidery panel dress is truly dazzling! This peppermint shift mini-dress dress features a detailed black embroidery panel and a high-neckline.
This piece was originally inspired by 1920’s embroidery, however the final dress has quite a antiquated oriental feel with the vintage-look black florals and the quartz green hue, which contrasts well with its modern streamlined shape. This dress looks great with a golden tan and sandals in warmer weather and also with tights and a tuxedo jacket to inject some colour into the dull winter months!
Whistle and Wolf's classic tailored dress has been transformed for winter! The dress now features our Russian Floral in-house designed print of delicate roses on a jet black satin base. Taking inspiration from classic vintage pieces, the dress shapes to your curves, while still being modest and flattering. The waist is drawn in by a panel, while pleats running down the front of the skirt give a slight tulip shape. This dreamy and elegant dress demands attention!
The inspiration for this particular piece began when our sister brand Playful Promises brought out the Russian floral lingerie set and we liked the print so much that we decided to feature it on a dress! I think that this dress is such a standout that I wouldn’t pair it with anything but a pair of black pumps and a slick of dark fuchsia lipstick.
The Embroidery Button Dress combines dark and cute for a truly fairy tale look! With spaghetti strap sleeves, a button front bodice, a fitted waist and a full gathered skirt bordered with bright neon embroidery at the front, this dress is straight out of a Brothers Grimm storybook.
The embroidery on this dress was originally inspired again by 20’s needlework, but it evolved a lot in the designing process to have Mexicana/ Day of the Dead and Eastern European folk influences. I would team this dress with leather boots and a hooded cape coat to brave the colder weather.
