Dress of the Day: Mother of Pearl Irvetta printed silk dress
For me London based label Mother of Pearl are a fairly new find on my fashion radar. Since setting my eyes on their selection of wonderful prints mixed with cool and want-worthy designs, I've been lusting ever since, and today's Dress of the Day hones from their current season collection.
With a strong art influence, the Mother of Pearl design team actually use pieces of art in their designs as well as luxe fabrics and a simple and clean sportswear silhouette. In this case, Mother of Pearl collaborated with artist Polly Morgan to come up with this super cool silk 'Irvetta' dress. Apparently animals with unexpected surroundings are the usual subject of Morgan's work, which is it's translated here with a leopard print frame on this midi sculptural shape.
This design is sleek, new and classic all at the same time. Having collaborated with SHOWstudio and Harrods in the past, it seems Mother of Pearl's profile is ever rising, and their resort collection just released for Spring / Summer 2014, looks like its going to be pretty special too.
