Preen by Thornton Bregazzi Dresses
Salma Hayek has been spotted in Preen by Thornton Bregazzi's teal dress, and the Duchess of Cambridge loves her 'Finella' styles so much, she owns two. This version is cut from stretch-crepe with elegant pleating through the skirt and across the fitted bodice. The asymmetric neckline keeps the feminine silhouette modern.
Preen by Thornton Bregazzi's 'Amber' midi dress is knitted from ribbed wool for a close fit through the body. The ruffled sleeves and hem are traced with rows of buttons - undo a few at the shoulder and side to reveal a hint of skin. We like it with white or silver accessories.
Preen by Thornton Bregazzi's 'April' dress is color-blocked with tomato-red and hot-pink - our favorite power pairing for Fall '17. Made from structured cady, it's artfully wrapped at the bust and flares out from the waist to a full skirt. Underpin the one-shoulder neckline with a strapless bra.
Shimmering embellishments are everywhere right now, even Preen by Thornton Bregazzi has swapped some of its signature prints in favor of sequins. Inspired by the flamboyance of the '80s New Romantics, this red 'Clarissa' midi dress skims your curves and falls to a sharp asymmetric hem. Match the bold hue to your lipstick, as seen on the Fall '17 runway.

Justin Thornton and Thea Bregazzi launched their label at the height of grunge in the '90s - that raw, undone aesthetic has stayed with them ever since.

Preen by Thornton Bregazzi knows that no two women are the same - "the modern woman isn't one thing. She likes things that are tough but she likes a bit of pink and sparkly, too, " the designers told us. This 'Audrey' dress is cut from devoré-chiffon that's printed with blooms and spliced with graphic stripes. Raw, undone silhouettes are the brand's strong suit, and we love how the asymmetric hem softly moves as you walk.
