While the rest of London was battling a torrential downpour, ES Magazine readers were surrounded by calm and tranquillity during a special showing of Australian designer Collette Dinnigan's resort collection over high tea.
Dinnigan is known the world over for her sexy feminine designs, and this collection is no exception. Ice cream colours with delicate beading contrasted with black chiffon with lingerie-lace edging.
As with most resort collections, there is ample opportunity to bare your tan, but there were practical options for those of us not daring enough to wear our skirts up-to-there.
Second-skin black satin trousers teamed with a sexy lace halter is a perfect option for sun-kissed shoulders.
There was a nod to the twenties with black lace and bugle beans accompanied by smoky eyes. A layered silk georgette halter dress appeared in 2 colours ¿ black and pink - both with matching satin trim.
A white, floor-length version with hand-cut silver beads would be perfect for an exotic beach wedding.
Classic Dinnigan appeared in a Wedgwood blue shift, bias-cut with fine ivory sequin embroidery and flirty pink chiffon ruffles with fine spaghetti straps ¿ easy to imagine rippling in a gentle sea breeze.
Collette Dinnigan's resort collection is available from late October.
