Two’s a Trend

The allure of a little white lace dress is timeless, but both Altuzarra and Rodarte added a little subversion to their offerings in the form of chokers and up-to-there leather boots. Altuzarra’s femme has a stricter sense of kink, with a bold black choker and suggestively frilly lace-up boots—she’s an Edwardian bad gal through and through, though she does get a bra to wear underneath her barely-there dress, which is more than Rodarte’s prairie disco babe can say. The sisters Mulleavy dressed up their pastoral offering with a buckle choker and thigh-high croc boots, but left the underpinnings out, turning their arty girl’s sweet reputation on its head.
