With the much anticipated arrival of the Emilia Wickstead collection at Matches, the hero story last week was the Ladylike. Dresses with high necklines and flared skirts ruled as did more slim fitting styles with pieces from Erdem, Issa, Jonathan Saunders (the Evelyn dress (£840) below was spotted on the Duchess of Cambridge last week), Roksanda Ilincic, Alexander McQueen, Nina Ricci and Carven selling incredibly well.
In a further nod to the Ladylike trend, the court shoe was another one of our strongest stories – every dress needs an amazing pair of heels after all! Our diverse selection in faux-leather crocodile, glitter, suede and snake print from Stella McCartney, Lucy Choi London, Sergio Rossi, Givenchy, Pierre Hardy, Giuseppe Zanotti, Gianvito Rossi, and Charlotte Olympia are fresh and modern interpretations of this classic style and are an incredibly versatile investment.
Petite bags and clutches are a great way to complete a look and our edit of bold coloured leather, lace, perspex, metallic hues, water snake and suede from DVF, Christian Louboutin, Givenchy, YSL and Sophie Hulme are the some of the season’s favourite styles that are receiving a lot of interest.
Finally, collars are one of this season’s key trends, giving your look a polished, contemporary feel and last week pieces from Jonathan Saunders and Carven sold very well.
