No woman should head into the holiday party circuit without at least one perfect little black dress in her closet. This timeless, universally flattering wardrobe classic is a cinch to dress up or down—plus, thanks to its versatility, you can wear it to numerous fêtes without feeling like an outfit repeater.
Just in time for this most shindig-packed of seasons, designer-slash-vintage-aficionado Didier Ludot has created a capsule couture-inspired LBDs for French basics brand Petit Bateau. Inspired by 60s-era silver-screen fixtures (and surely drawing upon some of the fantastic antique finds in his editor-beloved Paris shop), Ludot’s petites robes noires feature retro-sweet details like Peter Pan collars, trumpet skirts, and rounded pockets. Take a gander at the Catherine (inspired by Madame Deneuve herself), at top left, and the Twiggy (named for the long-lashed mod goddess) below.
Ludot’s designs for Petit Bateau will be available exclusively at petit-bateau.us starting December 5, with prices ranging from $122 to $140 for girls’ sizes and from $230 to $266 for womens’.
