JUST IN: Whistles announce designer collaboration!

Whistles is going to be one of THE go-to shops this autumn. Why? Because not only is their regular collection stocked with beautifully cut pieces perfect for work wear and accessories that were received so well by fashion editors they've put them in store already, we've just heard that uber-cool designer Roksanda Ilincic is creating a line of seven cocktail dresses for Whistles. This is seriously exciting news. Dresses are Roksanda's statement pieces. Using satins and silks, the British-based designer plays with shape so expertly her dresses are always uber-feminine but modern, too. You only have to look at how drop dead gorgeous Roksanda herself looks in her often jewel-coloured designs to know you've got to get yourself one of these dresses. ‘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,' Jane Shepherdson says of the Whistles collaboration. ‘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.' The pieces will go on sale in limited numbers early September, priced between £175 - £300 - a serious bargain considering her pieces would normally cost you upwards of £800. ‘It's so wonderful to see my work reaching a wider audience, and a pleasure to work with team Whistles!' says Roksanda. And we couldn't agree more....
