Asymmetric dress by Massimo Dutti flatters dark-skinned women at a price of 26 euros
The model focuses on the contrast between narrow and wide elements. Timeless design worth the investment.
A full skirt is always a suggestion of elegance and sophistication. It was born in the post-World War II scenario and revolutionized the world of women’s fashion. The scarcity of fabrics made producing new pieces very difficult, so women chose simpler, more boring designs. When the conflict ended, there was a need for change at all levels, and that is when Christian Dior introduced the “New Look” that would define the 1950s – with the innovation of the full skirt.
After several decades, the model underwent massive transformations in length, size and shape. It also began to be incorporated into dresses, for example. Contemporary fashion thrives on mixing styles and renewing classic models. In this sense, Massimo Dutti’s new piece fits perfectly into the spirit of the times due to the asymmetrical style of the upper part, combined with a wide lower part, neither too round nor too bulky.
The asymmetrical neckline was made popular in the 1970s by designer Roy Halston, when he launched a collection that combined two completely different designs: cocktail dresses with a touch of Greek models to create flowing, unique pieces on the market.
The simplicity of its appearance gives it the ability to attract positive attention, as it does not rely on strong colors or an exuberant silhouette. The asymmetrical top makes the model more interesting and tight, which contrasts with the full skirt that helps structure the model. The elastic waist is the detail that defines the model: it makes it fit better to the curves and helps to create a more pronounced contrast between the two elements that make it up.
The dress is available On Massimo Dutti website and stores at a 55 percent discount. After dropping the price twice, the piece that you could previously buy for €59.95 is now available 25.95€. You can also choose between sizes from XS to L.
