From runway samples to limited edition runs of past favourites, each month Anna Popovich will be bringing back selected pieces from our archive…
Marilyn is a dreamy and luxurious, hand-draped silk cocktail dress. An original design from the very first Anna Popovich collection, back by popular demand ...and have you noticed modelled by Anna herself for her very first collections photoshoot from back in 2009. Aw!
This 2009, Under My Skin collection was inspired by an essay Anna came across about the ways in which clothes have been used to show and hide the body throughout history. For example, the Marilyn dress draws attention to the bust and hips without actually revealing them at all but instead exaggerating them with voluminous draped fabric in contrast to the slim fitting pleats around the waist. This creates the illusion of a Marilyn Monroe-esque hourglass figure.
A very sumptuous dress, sexy without being revealing and in gorgeous soft grey silver, we think Marilyn is perfect for sultery summer evenings.
Marilyn is available From The Archive online for a limited time only.
