Luxurious, opulent, exquisite, elegant - these are just a few words that sprang to mind when I set eyes on the utterly stunning up-and-coming collection ‘YLB for Wallis’, Yasmin Le Bon’s brand new clothing range.
This is the first time the supermodel has ever collaborated with a retailer to design a collection, and it was certainly worth waiting for! I was lucky enough to get a pre-launch look at the beautiful pieces at the Wallis Head Office earlier this week, in advance of its launch here online this Saturday (12th September) and in selected Wallis stores next Tuesday (15th September).
The range offers something fabulous to wear for every fashion occasion, when you want to look and feel your very best – from a sculpted pencil skirt for work, to a Victorian-style leather jacket for off-duty days and a cowl back maxi dress for outings when only the most glamourous outfit will do!
The rich fabrics, sophisticated drape designs and striking shapes are brought together to make the most wearable, premium range you’ll find on the high street today.
Yasmin’s favourite dress is this Berry Cashmere Batwing Dress, £65. Yasmin quotes “It’s gorgeous and soft and you feel really sexy in it. To me that’s very important – how you feel in a dress.”
And my favourites are this Red Vintage Look Dress (£80), Embroidered Military Coat (£150) and Ivory Tie Neck Pleat Blouse (£65) – all perfect work to evening looks that have just the right balance of effortless chic and ‘look at me’ elegance.
