It's around this time of year I jump on board the 'ALL the embellishment' train, because y'know, Autumn. Having spent the past month eyeing up blogger-styled velvet suits and streams of military-style braiding (anyone else swooning over Tommy Hilfiger's latest?), last night provided the perfect opportunity to continue the fixation at the ultra-modern W London Hotel. Introducing luxury Dutch label, Daivor...
I can't imagine a better venue for the launch of the new AW collection. The W London Hotel's five-star status and central Leicester Square location was ideal, and the undeniably contemporary interior design made the perfect backdrop for Daisy Vorm's designs. Personally, I had a few favourite pieces, including the embroidered dress shown below, a crisp shirt featuring a blue and silver embellished collar, and a black velvet blazer. Standout piece? The latter, thanks to the kind of heavy embellishment that turns heads!
The music last night was so in tune with the brand's message of 'power dressing'. Provided by live DJ duo BitterSweet (Charlotte de Carle and Ashley James); R&B, Dance, Hip Hop - you get the idea! It was impossible not to come away feeling as though you had a really good idea of what Daivor was about, and how to spot a Daivor woman: edgy, confident and daring.
After a night spent checking out the label's new collection in the hotel's nightclub, I took a while to appreciate the W London's architecture before heading off to the tube. Seriously though, that is one impressive glass facade!
