Bring out the flags, clear your throat and get ready to heartily cheer the return of fashion’s oldest and dearest friend; the little black dress. First designed by Coco Chanel in 1926, the little black dress was unsurprisingly a roaring success due to its amazing versatility. Almost 90 years later it is still here, sometimes on the side lines, but every now again popping up and reminding us that it will never really go out of fashion.
The show stopper is always the one in the LBD, from Audrey Hepburn in her Givenchy creation for the 1961 film Breakfast at Tiffany’s, to Jennifer Aniston who is this decade’s Little Black Dress veteran, never seen without her favourite staple item. Strutting its stuff on the Celine, Lanvin, Chanel and Armani catwalks this season, the little black dress has featured in the designer spring and summer collections 2011, with Celine making a real homage to the LBD with their many inspired creations.
