More Beth than you can handlePosted: February 29, 2016
I’m in full Beth Ditto overdrive. I went back to Selfridges yesterday to eye up/ drool over the BD range. Again. On my return it was good to see that Selfridges had put a few pieces onto mannequins but I couldn’t help but wonder why they didn’t beg/ borrow/ steal a couple of plus sized dummies.
The range isn’t there in its entirety and annoyingly, they only have two of each of the pieces that they do have in stock so of course there isn’t even a full size set in ANYTHING. No sizes 26 or 28 in any of the fitted items so I coudn’t even try them on. What this means is that if I want to buy a piece I will have to go online. Selfridges will say the collection didn’t sell instore and any future BD collections will be relegated to online only. Am I just being cynical?
On the plus side, (boom! a pun) I had a bit more time than last week so was really able to pore over the collection and you know what? Its really well made using great fabrics. The Lola dress and skirt are made from a very sturdy modal, nylon and elastane mix and they are lined as well. As it says on the Selfridges website- “…..provides shaping without the need for shapewear” and that’s the truth. Even the pockets are lined and thats something you don’t often get at standard high street level.
Have you copped the detailing on the Nina dress collar?
Have any of you lovely readers bought anything yet?
