Our dress of the week is the Artemis Faille Patchwork Occhi Placée Maxi-Dress by La DoubleJ, £695. With a frilled skirt, flared sleeves and emblazoned in an attention-grabbing print, one that combines vibrant colours with an array of bizarrely playful motifs (spot the fish swimming among exotic florals, pineapples, lips, even some peacocks), this dress is the epitome of maximalism. Yes it is truly capturing the spirit of summer, but this kind of joyful, flowy maxi is the kind of dress you’ll want to wear all year long, let alone all season, especially if you’re heading off to sunnier, tropical climes.
“I adore the warmth and happiness that radiates from this dress,” says Georgina Bell, Assistant Buyer for Liberty Womenswear. “The dress is called 'Artemis' after the Greek Goddess that inspired its flowing shape which lends itself perfectly to a season of garden parties, picnics, weddings, and of course, summer holidays.”
If you’re looking to enliven your wardrobe this season with a feel-good dress, consider this maxi dress the pinnacle of dopamine dressing, perfect for nailing summer’s most definitive trend.
Featuring a collared neckline and button fastenings at the front, this maxi-dress falls loosely from the waist down for an A-line silhouette, so opt for your normal size.
Best Worn With:
Stella McCartney’s Frayme Bag, £795, a small shoulder bag that pairs perfectly with the dress’ rich colouring. With the dress having half-length sleeves, make the most of having your wrists on show with Otiumberg’s Gold Plated Vermeil Silver Two Chain Paperclip Bracelet, £140. And as no summer ensemble is complete without a pair of chic sunglasses, opt for Isabel Marant’s Silver Metal Aviator Sunglasses, £150 – a timeless pair you’ll want to wear with almost every outfit.
