Inspired by the couture salons of a bye-gone era and boutiques such as Didier Ludot’s La Petit Robe Noire in the Palais Royal, Paris, The Little Black Dress Shop provides women with an experience of the utmost luxury and style, paying homage to the enduring fashion phenomenon that is The Little Black Dress…
“Generations of women have been drawn to the little black dress. Indeed the word has entered our cultural lexicon. Say it and everyone knows what you are referring to: a dress that’s simple enough to appear effortless yet elegant enough to mark the wearer as a woman of taste….delicious ambiguity is what makes the LBD so attractive. By turns seductive or demure, bold or self-effacing, chic or gamine, its one of the big guns in any sartorial armoury….Black suggests a uniform chicness that transcends any mere trends.”
Nancy MacDonnell Smith, author of The Classic Ten
Situated downstairs of Boudoir Chic in Paddington, Brisbane, The Little Black Dress Shop blends seamlessly with the stylish aesthetic of Boudoir Chic, the proprietor’s original store. The 199 Latrobe Tce address is now home to a veritable emporium of luxury with the original store upstairs housing lingerie collections as well as hosiery, shoes and jewellery and The Little Black Dress Shop presenting a sublime selection of classic outerwear pieces.
Elegant décor in ebony and metallic grey accented with creamy marble provides the perfect backdrop to showcase the shop’s exquisite collection; primarily the store’s eponymous Little Black Dress in all its guises but also separates in neutral shades and trend-transcending styles. Gathering chic and quality pieces from across the globe, The Little Black Dress Shop presents collections from Paul & Joe, Hugo Boss, By Malene Birger, Fillipa K, Maje, Hoss Intropia, Gerard Darel, Marc Cain, Little Joe, La Perla, Christies, Missoni and Wolford as well as impeccably crafted garments from local labels Grbac and Tijdelijk.
