Marios Schwab is the latest designer to join the ranks at Debenhams, with a capsule collection of dresses as part of the EDITION range that also includes Jonathan Saunders, Preen, Roksanda Ilincic and Jonathan Kelsey in fashion and Ashley Thomas, Carol Lake and Yukari Sweeney in homewares.

It's a small collection at present - seven dresses in total, with one style available in two colourways. It's a very tame collection by Schwab's standards, but this is a dilluted department store version of his look, so we were never going to get the bondage strapping, micro minis and sequinned bust detail. Instead, those signature structual touches and use of contrast fabrics like leather and chiffon have been put into a series of knee-length shifts and cocktail dresses, plus one showstopping double-layer maxi, definitely the stand-out piece...

The dresses range from £90 to £150 and are available at Debenhams now.
