Women of great style generally have a knack of putting together the ideal capsule wardrobe. Just look at Coco Chanel, Emma Watson, The Duchess of Cambridge or Cate Blanchett – it’s all about the hot dress and the arresting blank canvas – the chic go anywhere dress, the perfect, indispensable coat and clever, draped, goddess cocktail dress, perhaps with a subtle reference to a retro fashion era, but then reinvented for a contemporary life. Now, with so many leading designers choosing to embrace sustainable supply chains, there is no reason why your hot capsule wardrobe shouldn’t be as green as it is sexy.
Right now the eco conscious winter dress I would adore to wear is by Cossac. A body con dream of a dress in lavender grey that skims over the body, comes with the ideal hemline and all the drama is in the sleeves and the demure sexiness of concealment. The perfect day into night, go anywhere goddess dress. A dress that could be embellished with a fabulous necklace or Diane Keaton hat. The genius comes in the cut, drape, fabric and arresting simplicity. Cossac are very good at making that elusive fashion star of a dress. The dress you will get fabulous pounds per wear. The kind of dress that Coco, Emma and Cate would wear and make utterly their own. Exuding great style is all about putting together a forever fashion wardrobe that simply cannot be pigeon holed. A collection of treasured, well-priced investment, sustainable luxury fashion pieces that are instantly wearable and beautifully tailored, that can then be embellished with your own treasured accessories. I’m talking about the kind of clothes that are timelessly alluring, head turning and frequently invite the admiration of friends and complete strangers.
Agata Kozak, the founder and creative director at Cossac, understands this principle, and each season she creates more thoroughly bewitching capsule delights including her heavenly, boat neck, draped mini dress with fluted, belle sleeves in palest lavender. This dress is so heart-stoppingly chic, no wonder it is currently sold out. But fear not, there is more, including a draped, go anywhere, mid-length goddess dress, that slithers over the female form, in lovely autumnal rust. Both dresses offer every opportunity to make the garment our very own, and thus make our wardrobe highly individual and exciting and personal to us – and horray for grown up, eco conscious sexiness! Surely that is what every woman wants – the holy grail of fashion not just for a heartbeat, but for all seasons.
