We’re smitten with our latest Designer Crush, the London label Darling! The brand’s vintage-inspired designs are all about flirty frills, pleasant prints, and intricate embellishments — which means there’s a lot to love about Darling. They’ve become an international sensation since their launch in 2008, and we’re delighted to showcase their beautiful clothes on our site.
In honor of Darling’s inspiring designs, we asked our stylist, Annie, to fashion an outfit using her favorite piece from the collection, and to tell us which darling details she loves best!
Inspired by Darling’s Frilly Pond Dress, Annie styled Susan’s assistant, Lauren, this elegant ensemble with the Clover the Rainbow Flat, Oval and Oval Again Earrings in Blue, and Faux Sure Bag. “Darling always puts a twist on the traditional — they design modern pieces you’d swear were vintage treasures!” says Annie.
As far as details go, Annie especially loves the lace and pearl embellishments seen on the Blooms in the Sky Cardigan, Evening at the Manor Top, Naturally Sweet Dress, Act Two, Scene One Dress, Pastoral Paradise Dress, and ‘Peace’ of My Heart Skirt.
