Pattern, pattern and more pattern is Rixo’s aison d’'être. In the few short years, the London-based label has been around, it’s established itself as a go-to label for vintage-inspired prints and dresses with flair, function and a touch of fabulousness. Whether you’re heading to brunch with friends, bossing it in the boardroom or dancing to cheesy pop tunes at a wedding, it’s Camellia dress has a do-everything appeal that’s hard to ignore. Keen to see if this cult number lives up to its appeal, I tried it on for size…
How’s It Fit?
Like an absolute dream. Though the neckline dips too low for a bra, I don’t feel exposed. In fact, with the full-length skirt and sleeves, the dress feels demure.
Is The Pattern Too Bold In IRL?
Using dark undertones, Rixo’s vivid abstract print, which riffs on Mattise’s cut-outs, strikes a rebellious note. It’s easy to cross-pollinate with tough or cute accessories – think how Kate Moss it will look with a leather jacket or how refined with a clutch and stilettos. Though this print is anything but shy and retiring, it is what makes this piece so darn versatile.
Was The Devil In The Details?
The fact that this dress is made out of 100% silk goes a long way to explaining its price. However, there is much more to this piece than a dry clean only swing tag and a delighting print. With a lined bodice, elegant blouson sleeves, pleats and slits, it’s hidden details prove it’s a dress that’s made with a real women’s figure and curves in mind.
