I saw Florence and The Machine last weekend and loved her dress (voice, spirit and joie de vivre). Florence skipped barefoot around the stage throughout the entire performance. The dress, designed by Gucci (they have done all the clothes for her tour), was long, flowing and slightly goth. And the best bit was the ribbon belt with long ties fluttering down the back. It was simply sensational and makes me want to love Gucci again.
A few friends emailed me after I ran a post on ankle straps to say that they would not wear them as they shorten the leg. I responded that a pair in nude would solve this problem, but I like Emmanuelle’s pairing them with pants too.
Everyone has been jumping on the anti wacky-show-getups wagon and I have to agree, sometimes just black is really lovely.
