When two gorgeous people point me to four gorgeous dresses, and they are all from the very same brand, it is time for a curious mind like me to investigate a little bit further… I had the pleasure to visit La Dress
showroom in Amsterdam last week.
Visiting La Dress Showroom in Amsterdam
They have created a beautiful space full of glamorous Christmas spirit (It was hard for me to stay away from the macarons and Ferrero Rochers!) -and rails and rails of stunning, 100% wearable, I on Image-proof dresses. I was welcomed by lovely La Dress representative, Jint van Andel, who told me about the philosophy of the brand, materials, cuts, colours and much more.
To my delight all La Dress dresses are made in the EU, namely The Netherlands, Romania and Poland, using only the highest quality Italian travel quality fabrics. I like very much the aspect that you can wash your own dress and just hang it up and, voilà, you are ready to go.
The jersey dresses don’t even require ironing so they are ideal for my globe trotting business clients who want to travel in style without ever having to sacrifice the comfort. Simone van Trojen, the creative mind behind the brand, wears every sample herself to ensure the quality, comfort and that luxurious feel that is the brand’s signature element.
My Favorite La Dress Dresses
It was difficult to choose my favorites, because there were simply too many, but I managed to narrow it down to top 5.
ROSA in anthracite
CAROLINE in cobalt by La Dress
ANDIE in navy by La Dress
ALVA in red by La Dress
PENELOPE in polkadot by La Dress
ROSA – This wrap-top number is made of comfortable jersey lycra fabric that flatters your figure. It has long sleeves and an understated sexy under-the-knee length. It comes in 4 stylish colours: anthracite, black, navy and cobalt.
CAROLINE -It is hardly a surprise that this beauty is a best seller. 3/4 sleeves are an elegant way to show off a bit of skin. It is made of washable and wearable light jersey. The dress has a flattering boat neck and a demure just-above-the-knee length. It comes in 11 different colours. There is a shorter version available, Carla, that comes is whopping 18 different colours!
ANDIE -This curve hugging 3/4 sleeve dress is made of luxurious heavy jersey. It has a sexy zipper that goes down all the way in the back. Speaking of memorable exits! It comes in two forever classic colours: navy and grey.
ALVA -This ultra-flattering dress is made of elegantly falling crêpe fabric. It is cinched in at the waist and flares at the hips. I love the gathered fabric around the bust and the demure under-the-knee-length. It comes in 3 stylish statement colours: red, black and blue purple.
PENELOPE – This gorgeous wrap dress is made of beautiful jersey lycra. It has an extended panel of material for ultimate comfort and cover . It has my favorite 3/4 sleeves and a collar that looks fabulous when popped up instead of worn down as in the picture. It comes in 5 wearable colours: black, ink (a great option for navy)
I am looking forward to bringing my dress-loving personal shopping clients to the ultimate La Dress experience at their atmospheric showroom in Amsterdam or in one of their boutiques.
