Contrast-stitching high-neck silk dress


Sarah Burton delves deep into ancient Cornish traditions for Alexander McQueen's AW17 collection and this black knit silk dress is the enchanting result. It's crafted in Italy with knife pleats across the blouson sleeves and midi skirt each of which are finished with metallic-gold zigzag embroidered red piped wool trim inspired by rags tied to Cloutie trees. Ground it for the evening with pin-thin stilettos.
