Hems might be getting shorter and splits higher, and the coming autumn may be all about tunic splits, but wafting high split dresses remain amongst the look. They’re still on trend, still head turning, and still a statement to make.
And summer is all about statements. Designer Jessica Choay might be ahead of the spring 2014 curve in pairing short dresses with high slits but, like so many other trends, that’s not a statement everyone is willing to make – high split, floor length dresses should be.
Choay’s for the summer 2014 season is the Jealousy dress. I suspect the point of the name is that the dress is designed to make men jealous of the fact that the woman wearing it isn’t on their arm. But that’s only a suspicion; photographing the dress on Doina Ciobanu of The Golden Diamonds, I never thought to ask Choay.
While the collection won’t be released until mid-2014, bespoke pieces of the Jealousy dress can be purchased now by emailing Choay via firstname.lastname@example.org. You can see all the preview photos of the dress by clicking on the thumbnails and browsing through the gallery.
