The little black dress: The story of a timeless elegance
It used to be a dress worn mainly by working-class shop girls and domestic servants. Only in the 1920s, when a “little black dress” by Gabrielle ‘Coco’ Chanel was presented in the fashion magazine Vogue, did the glamorous star story of this timeless piece of clothing begin.
It soon shaped the fashion world of the 1920s and became a symbol of the modern, self-confident woman. The 1950s saw the emergence of a particular category of black dresses made from pressed, starched and perfectly tapered A-line silhouettes. Then, in the 1990s, they were rebuilt into tight, curve-hugging mini versions that we now call bodycon.
The little black dress is actually an eternal it-piece that goes back to the closets of our mothers and grandmothers. In recent decades we have seen it hop from generation to generation. Over time, the iconic dress has undergone changes in cut, length, sleeves, etc., but never went out of style.
