Zucca Nylon Taffeta Dress

This morning, when we popped onto La Garconne to see what had posted over the weekend, 'oh la la' dribbled out of our mouths. La Garconne has a clean little way of editorializing their products. It's a simple splash, like the one we have on our front page, which shows a garment of note. Although we wholeheartedly agree with the way sites like Net-a-Porter editorialize their goods, we also have a soft spot for La Garconne's tidy, honest personality a la their front page. What helps give this simple design a little more panache is when the garment being featured is bright and wild like this Zucca Nylon Taffeta Dress.

Zucca is part of La Garconne's new Atelier section. The line, started by Onozuka Akira (protege of Issey Miyake) in 1989, is known for embodying the modern Japanese aesthetic which plays with proportion and textile at the expense of giving consumers those 'pretty cocktail dresses' they love so much. The Zucca dress is no exception. We'd expect someone with a lot of personality to show up to an event in this dress...she would likely be referred to as The Gal In A Blazing Taffeta Dress and she'd easy to spot standing in a sea of girls wearing their Herve Ledger and Louboutin outfits.
