If you’re thinking 1920s, you’re on the right track. The Detmer dress – like the entire of Dries Van Noten’s AW16 collection – was inspired by the extreme and morbid affair between patroness Marches Luisa Casati and her poet lover, Gabriele D’Annunzio. Every inch of this dress is a signal back to that selfish hedonism as pure silk is embellished with a diamond-patterned tulle overlay that’s as elegant as it is passionate.
