The term, The Little Black Dress (LBD), was coined by Coco Chanel and Jean Patou during the 1920s. The concept was to produce a long-lasting, versatile, simple and affordable garment, accessible to the widest market possible and in a neutral colour. The concept of such a dress inspired Helen - who made it her uniform! She has a dozen and loves not having to decide what to wear while still being certain of looking good.
So we decided to make one just like it available to you. The only issue was that of fit - and so we have extended our size range to do just that.
This Little Black dress could not be simpler. A top quality suit weight jersey in a great natural mix with enough stretch to make is really easy to wear even when fitted. It has long simple sleeves, a familiar scoop neck, is shaped at the waist and has darts at the back with a short overlapping vent.
You must have one - and may want more!
