Whistles will collaborate with designer Roksanda Ilincic to launch a range of dresses for Autumn 09.
Ilincic will create seven cocktail dresses for the womenswear retailer, which will be stocked in limited numbers in London branches including Whistles’ flagship in St Christopher’s Place, as well as its concessions in Harrods, Selfridges and Brown Thomas in Dublin in the Republic of Ireland. Prices will range from £175-£300.
Whistles chief executive Jane Shepherdson said: “I have long been a huge fan of Roksanda, and to have her design such an exquisite collection of dresses for Whistles has been a unique opportunity. We have worked closely at every stage of the design process with Roksanda to capture her unique sense of play and contrast in colour, fabric and texture. It would be hard not to fall in love with the resulting collection.”
Roksanda Ilincic said: “It’s so wonderful to see my work reaching a wider audience, and a pleasure to work with team Whistles.”
