Antonio Berardi Draped-Back Panel Velvet Gown £6,825.00 Selfridges (Shop Now)

Velvet conjures concepts of mystery, and it renders itself in true decadent form with the languid construction of this gown from Antonio Berardi. Inspired by the twisted nature of Lady Macbeth and of traditional costume during that period, the designer trades his signature body-con silhouette for a fall to the floor. The drama over the shoulders reveals an entirely open draped panel complimenting the embroidered stripes at the skirt.

Alena Akhmadullina Tapestry-Embellished Velvet Coat £2,280.00 Selfridges (Shop Now)

Tickled by a fairytale about a firebird from her Russian homeland, Alena Akhmadullina’s AW17 edit was her most whimsical yet. Although her vision for Stateside is arguably less fur-heavy than her Russian output, plush fabrics still reign. Capturing the theme in light-catching velvet, one look at this coat and you’ve opened a whole storybook. Its dropped shoulders, slip pockets and tapestry embellishment speak an intricate and far-flung aesthetic poetry.
