There may be a considerable lack of the usual Christmas sashaying and party-hopping this year, but that doesn’t negate the need for an LBD or ‘D’ of any other kind.
Thank goodness then that celeb-favourite Vampire’s Wife is collaborating with high-street giant H&M on a limited-edition capsule, just in time for – what is usually – party season.
The collection, which launches at the end of this month, is bursting with the Vampire’s Wife signature gothic detailing, dramatic lace and glamorous velvet.
Speaking to British Vogue, the brand’s founder Susie Cave, said: “H&M took great pains to find the very essence of what The Vampire’s Wife is about, and then realised my dreams to my exact specifications. To design a dress at The Vampire’s Wife and get it through to the finish line is extremely difficult, miraculous really, as we are a small company. H&M is extraordinarily powerful in that respect.”T
Swedish retailer H&M is no stranger to a high-brow collaboration, having secured Karl Lagerfeld and Versace as just a few of its previous collaborators.
Vampire’s Wife was founded by Cave – the wife of crooner Nick Cave – in 2014 and was endorsed by the Duchess of Cambridge during her royal tour of Ireland earlier this year. Killing Eve’s Villanelle, Sienna Miller and Alexa Chung are just a few of the brand’s other devotees.
The Vampire’s Wife x H&M collection launches on October 22.
