My favourite piece of the moment: the Relaxed sleeveless lurex dress
By Elisa, Chief Wanderer and Founder
It does feel a bit wrong to devote an entire blog post to a single product. Yet when the product is this good, it just needs to be done. I didn't think I would like this dress by French label Cozete so much when I chose the collection based on the lookbook a few months ago. I was somehow more attracted to the more classic and feminine viscose pieces that the brand is so good at producing.
And yet when we first received the collection, I knew this would be the piece I would be keeping for myself this season. Let me explain why. First, the fabric and the colour. Lurex can be a bit too much sometimes, yet this feels totally wearable and very, very cool indeed. The thin fabric isn't clingy and feels comfortable. The dark grey hue is given a subtle shine thanks to the lurex thread running through it; it doesn't feel dressy, however, in this case it gives the piece an urban edge that's perfect for everyday wear. Second, the fit and the length. The sleeveless, t-shirt shape has a definite relaxed feel to it, and most importantly, it's not too short and feels just right for going to meetings during the day but also to hang out with friends at night. Finally, the details. The twist back is interesting but not too fussy, and the little touches, like the slight pintucks on the shoulder and the roll-up effect on the sleeves, make all the difference.
Long story short, I'm in love.
