roksanda illincic whistles dress cocktail colaboration.jpg

Whistles have just announced that they are teaming up with Croatian-born designer Roksanda Illincic for a range of seven cocktail dresses. Roksanda Illincic's AW09 collection is beginning to filter into stores now, her Dynasty-style purple cocktail number (£2205, NaP) will hopefully be an indication of the kind of thing we can expect at Whistles. The designer recently collaborated with Damaris on an a collection of highly covetable underwear.

"I have long been a huge fan of Roksanda, and to have her design such an exquisite collection of dresses for Whistles has been a unique opportunity," Whistles ceo Jane Shepherdson told Grazia. "We have worked closely at every stage of the design process with Roksanda to capture her unique sense of play and contrast in colour, fabric and texture. It would be hard not to fall in love with the resulting collection."

At the last press day it was evident Whistles had upped their game for AW 09, their collection was a lot more directional while staying true to their customers. This collaboration sees them heading even more towards high-fashion, we can't wait to see this instore!
