Fresh from the AW16 runway, Erdem’s black crushed-velvet Rebecca dress is inspired by the silver-screen heroines of the 1940s.

Erdem's romantic view of fashion is celebrated in this Riva dress. It's made in Italy from black silk voile, printed with passion flowers in soft tones, cut with a stand collar, and ruffles at the front, back, and down the sides of the bodice – creating a sleeve effect – and at the hem of the fluted, floor-grazing asymmetrical skirt. A waistband controls the silhouette, while a black grosgrain tie at the back of the neck makes a beguiling presence. Pared-down black sandals are the perfect grounding to this dramatic piece.

Keep the detailing in focus with simple finishers – a black clutch and barely there heels will be perfect.
