The Market: Ostwald Helgason Beaded Dress

1 Dec

Ostwald Helgason Beaded Dress, $1,820, brownsfashion.com

As you know, we have been approaching holiday party dressing from a “beyond the LBD” perspective, looking for special pieces and inspirations that make a statement. One of our favorite under-the-radar designers is London-based Ostwald Helgason, and we are absolutely intrigued by this dress. How would the shape of the dress change once it is on the body? How would the beads lay on the contours of the body? Beyond being simply “pretty”, fashion should also be a statement of provocation and this piece is that in spades. Yes, it is clearly an investment piece, but we love it as inspiration to do something a little left of center for the holidays. Adore.
