Happy holidays everyone! ‘Tis the season to be jolly, spend quality time with your loved ones and overindulge in multi-course meals. For those of us who have a fondness for classic formal attire it is also the opportune occasion to get all spruced up for a black-tie dinner or gala event. The jazzy piano melodies of acclaimed holiday season songs have a charming appeal, taking you back to times past as music, art and fashion can do so tenderly. Adhering to the formal dress code of an event allows your appearance to be part of the ambiance, an enchanting as well as romantic ambiance that already feels like you have stepped into a different world or old movie once you start getting dressed at home. Even if the dress code is black-tie, you still have room to put your own twist on it.
With great candor, we present you with our classically styled formal ensembles, in an elegant yet demure ivory color palette to better suit a more conventional type of a formal gathering. Unmistakably recognized as the Beau of the ball, a white version of black-tie emulates the height of glamour with a white 3-piece tuxedo, surprisingly combined with a pitch-black shirt and matching bow tie. What else could complete this ravishing look than a pair of shiny patent loafers? Flanked by an equally glamorous appearance attained by wearing a luxurious evening gown by Saskia ter Welle Couture. The exquisitely draped silk dress is complemented by gorgeous accessories such as a feathered belt, net face veil and clutch, all featuring refined hand embroidered details. To be quite Frank, Sinatra perfectly resonates with this style.
