blanc + delta – winner of the Follow the Fashion competition – will release its autumn/winter 2010 collection ‘Beyond the dark night’on 5 February.
Representing a shift into the darkness after last season’s soft and feminine ‘Into the twilight’ collection, the new range is dark and moody, featuring a strong colour palette and heavy winter fabrications. Remaining true to the blanc + delta style, the collection features soft intricate details of ruffles, frills and pleats whilst pushing the limits of texture with metal lace, black soft velvet, velvet, metallic jacquards and soft silk georgettes.
The collection will be available in-store at the blanc + delta boutique, Broadway on the Mall.

“Into the twilight” collection is set amidst a mid-summers dream. A soft romantic colour palette is featured in silver-moon, apricot and peach for twilight and black for Midnight. Featuring exquisite old-world fabrications and soft delicate shapes, the collection makes reference to Edwardian femininity. From white plush velvet and silver-metal jacquard to soft silk satin, georgette and organza each piece is luxurious and textured.
To spice up the silhouette and for a refreshing change, space-age inspiration is added to the mix… Metal hardware features harden up the pieces with zips and metal studs. Straight-lined panel dresses with square angled sleeves are featured with contrasting panels of velvet and jacquard. Frills and pleats in different sizes are intricately placed along seams and panels for fine detail and bring a couture feel to the collection.”
