Inspired by Marchesa Luisa Casati, an Italian heiress who would drape herself in necklaces and pearls in equal measure, Dries Van Noten's collection this season emphasises decadence.
This black dress is fairly dripping with faux-pearls; the silk slip underneath helps ground this look. Follow the designer's lead and pair velvet boots.
