With the World Cup, we are all currently and right so- Brazil-crazy but let me tell you I’ve always been a fan of Brazilian fashion (food and film) and scored a goal of my own (sorry) when stunning Luxe-Layers, a beautiful boutique and online shop from my old neighbourhood Barnes in London contacted me to gift me this captivating dress by Rio based designer Lucidez. I’m in love….
Lucidez designs for the urban, contemporary woman who looks to express her attitude and style in the clothes she wears (me, me and me). Focusing on using exclusive prints and fabrics in all designs, with the most perfect of cuts, I am utterly besotted with this beautiful dress: the Lucudez Gilbran Dress (now reduced from £235 to £141).
Nipping you in at the waist, soft to the touch despite being structured, the attention to detail is incredible with the designer’s name embellished in the zip detail at the front and back.
I’m wearing it here with a vintage gold YSL necklace and Ursala Mascaro heels.
I think it might just be my favourite dress of all TIME! Ever! The end!
A little more on the designer: one of the pioneers in exporting Brazilian fashion, Lucidez is now represented in over 10 countries outside of its native Brazil and is now exclusively available in the UK through luxe-layers.com.
Luxe Layers was founded by Flavia Young, a passionate business woman who grew up immersed in the fashion world since the days her mothers owned a chic boutique also in Rio de Janeiro in the 70’s. Her store is the ideal destination to head to in person for the personal touch or online for effortlessly chic style.
