Good news if you want something in the dress line with ’60s inspiration. A new 1960s dress collection has just landed at Carnaby Streak.
I do mention Love Her Madly a lot on these pages and quite rightly. That particular label does some stunning 1960s-style dresses and is well worth checking out to compare and contrast. But Carnaby Streak is also a label to check out and follow too.
It’s something of a similar set-up, with all the dresses produced by Angela (the woman behind the label) and each one hand finished using traditional tailoring methods.
The new range is a set of limited edition designs that are almost certain to appeal to a mod audience, covering everything from the bright and bold to more subdued monochrome designs, as well as some flowers, stripes and paisley if you fancy any of those details.
Sizes are 6 through to 18, but there is the option to have a dress made in a custom size if you prefer. That’s the joy of handmade.
A selection of those new designs is showcased here, with the dress at the top of the page being a colour block dress with flower buttons that retails for £70 lined and £88 unlined.
Down the page you will find (in order) the Birkin dogtooth dress (£75), Rita stripe dress (£80), Grand Prix green dress (£78 unlined, £96 fully lined), turquoise daisy gingham dress (£75), yellow daisy gingham dress (£75), pink daisy gingham dress (£75), Celia dress (£80), Christina dress (£70) and the Hepburn dress (£70).
More details on those and all of the range at the Carnaby Streak website.
