Revoque hit our radars late last year, with its debut Spring/Summer 15 collection that featured sleek flattering silhouettes, luxurious fabrics, sophisticated tailoring and a fresh and vibrant colour palette. It became the go-to label for all women wanting to look and feel fabulous.
This time around, head designer Danica Ryan is heating things up with her latest A/W 15 Collection, entitled Grey Luxe. This collection is an extension of the debut range, featuring all the elements that make Revoque the success it is, but with new innovative details like contrasting mesh, lush thinker fabrics and a darker colour palette (perfect for the cooler months).
"The colours are really a darker expression of the SS15 colour range", says Ryan. "Grey is the biggest shade for A/W15, so it was important to incorporate this into my designs."
Grey Luxe features some must-have winter staples for every woman's wardrobe, from a classic day-to-night A-line dress, fun playsuit to an easy to wear wrap dresses. Classic silhouettes mixed with lush fabrics and a mindful approach to designing real clothes for real women, it's safe to say we LOVE Grey Luxe!
Essentially, Revoque came about from Ryan's own struggles in finding clothes her figure, and lets be honest... we have all been there in the fitting room, frustrated with the inconsistent sizing and unflattering cuts of clothes.
"Revoque is designed for women that have shape to them," says Ryan. "I have designed the range with comfort but crisp styling - so there is more width in the hips, clever pleating designs and deep pockets for comfort. The designs are classic silhouettes that will suit many body shapes, however the fabric and detailing of mesh makes the designs modern."
"The fabric is a mixture of 52% cotton, 45% brocade and 3% spandex. It has a luxe soft feel, yet still has a little stretch and holds shape really well. In fact, it becomes softer and more subtle after being washed. Personally, I adore this fabric and aim to use it for the brand going forward," adds Ryan.
With so many beautiful yet equally practical designs, we personally love the flattering cut of the Suzana Dress, that perfectly defines the waist, and the practical sleeve and innovative mesh detailing of the Ivanka Dress.
"My favourite piece is the Valentina wrap dress. It’s so versatile and can suit a wide range of body shapes. Being such an easy piece, you can just throw it on and go, whilst still looking sleek," says Ryan.
