The little black dress that has statement written all over it

Their name evokes because little black dresses can make all manner of statements. They can be classic, not all that little, they can be revealing or demure, they can be the foundation upon which a broader look is built, or they can be the look itself.

Lashes of London’s cut-out little black dress is wholly of the latter variety.

Sitting off the shoulder, cut out precisely where it should be and remaining solid exactly where it needs to be, it’s a little black dress impossible to miss. I can tell you that first hand – photographing Doina of The Golden Diamonds in the dress wasn’t so much a exercise of co-ordinating light and angles in so much as it was waiting for Lucca’s tourists to stop watching what we were doing and move on with their time in the city. But it’s a credit to a dress when men and women alike take their time to look at it and ignore the Roman and Medieval buildings past which they’re walking.

Lashes of London’s little black dress is, in a word, hot.

It’s available worldwide from ASOS. I photographed it on Doina Ciobanu in Lucca, Italy.

Having flown over 590,000 kilometres in a single year (2012), he’s done much to push the boundaries of a fashioniser, always looking to fold one extra Tom Ford suit into his set of Samsonite cases and for one extra occasion to tie a tie for. As much an editor-at-large as he is’s Editor-in-chief, when he's not travelling to all the fashion weeks his passports will allow him to, Daniel works on guiding this publication’s editorial and trend views.
