alice McCall: Night Flight

09 May 2019

Turn up the volume, she’s dancing by in wisps of chiffon and lace. Shimmy on a denim jacket with feathered fronds upon the sleeve, or pluck out delay-your-bedtime slip dresses in buttermilk yellow trimmed with frothy plumes. alice McCALL takes separates that match and raise it a notch with a modern update on coordinates.

Lurex pants with bralettes and tiny tops - this is not the twinset your grandmother would recognise. A burst of glitz, with a softer touch. It’s party season year round, all ‘round here. We can see the Bianca Jaggers of the world here in the elongated dresses trickled through with metallic threads.

Yes, there are longer lengths and knitted skirts - fit and flared, throwing out from the knee. All the better to swish around in! A flocked polka dot lace has been hand selected from Japanese millinery, cameoing here in sugar-spun gowns redolent of the 80s or your Lou Doillons in bold striped denim or paisley print scarves - why not both? Throw out the rule book!
