Imagine yourself luxuriating in the drawing room at Mitford Manor with a bunch of aristocratic English eccentrics. Peers and nobles with triple-barrelled surnames talk you through each of the animal heads on display and regale you with hopelessly un-PC (yet fearfully British) tales of hunting safaris.
Of course, one should never wear highly flammable fabrics next to a fireplace, so this silk Isabel Marant dress is the perfect frippery to hide under your coat and dance around in once inside. And with its slightly animalistic print you have just the right mix of high fashion and eccentric individual flair.
