"romance, elegance and elevation can all be achieved with an underlying, understated and undeniable sexiness."
Words by Nick Remsen
This exclusive Spring/Summer 2018 capsule collection, presented and sold exclusively through Brock Collection’s new e-commerce platform, takes the house's best-sellers and gives each a contemporary—but always classic—twists. Each piece is deeply personal to designers Laura and Kris Brock, too—telling a unique story in terms of both feature, and fabrication.
"The New Originals"
"Each piece is deeply personal to designers Laura and Kris Brock."
Few wardrobe items are as personally luxurious as a slip-dress, and the Donnie, an update from Pre-Spring 2018, suggests a vision of graphic-but-soft romance between its off-white silk crepe de chine body and black Chantilly lace trim. It is elegantly simple, but with texture and allure on account of its amorous filigree accenting.
"With the love-story of flamenco and the sleek sophistication of the color black."
With the love-story of flamenco and the sleek sophistication of the color black, our Darwin dress—adapted here, from Pre-Spring 2018, in lightweight taffeta—embodies the updated classicism of Brock Collection:
it is elegant in structure but easygoing in movement, familiar in attitude but fanciful in aesthetic. The Darwin dress amplifies the traditional with volume, suggesting... well: dancing in the moonlight.
The Dorrie represents love at first sight: it’s an adaptation of a Pre-Spring 2018 finale look, now offered in ivory Chantilly lace over a silk crepe de chine slip dress, all in white. This piece holds true another Brock Collection tenet: that romance, elegance and elevation can all be achieved with an underlying, understated and undeniable sexiness.
In lustrous white Italian jacquard, the Shiloh skirt is an update on a piece from Fall/Winter 2016—at one point, the original design was customized for the stylist Grace Coddington for the pages of Vogue. It is generously draped, but it moves with the lightness and languidness of relaxed nighttime, evoking something of eras past and moments present, together.
Also in Italian jacquard, the Tiffany top is an interpretation of a dress from the Spring/Summer 2018 season. It speaks to Brock Collection's central codes: a commitment to loosened luxury, and nostalgic beauty in deeply personal, lived-in ways.
