Designers and sisters Fannie Chan and Connie Majoros understand the modern woman. Dominated by dramatic blacks and crisp whites, the understated style of their Femme D’Armes spring collection is spot on. Menswear inspired silhouettes are occasionally complimented with delicate lace and feminine details. Every piece is refined but approachable, strong but sweet. I’m obsessed with their floor skimming Bailey gown, which has a thigh high slit and plunging back – and is available in black, nude and white lace, green chiffon and a birds of paradise print. Stunning.
