Gamine supermodel Twiggy, neé Lesley Lawson, was the fashion icon and face of the London’s swinging Mod sixties. The clean, A-line shape and sleek construction of the trapeze dress defined the style of this period. This silhouette was both functional and ultra-modern.
The Lawson is an A-line shift dress. With hidden side seam pockets that comfortably hold even an iPhone Plus, this modern version of the traditional trapeze dress is the perfect go-to dress for any occasion. Outer fabric is made of luxurious and crisp silk-wool with a silk habotai lining in scarlet red.
