Peacock is influenced by the 1950s with its sweeping skirts, fitted waists and natural shoulders. This collection’s staple is the soft bias-cut dress, although ball gowns and mermaid silhouettes abound. This season also welcomes the introduction of a mix-and-match philosophy, with a halter-neck top, an appliqué lace corset and companion skirts. Deep necklines and backs plunge into bias-cut satin skirts and corseted bodices trail pearl buttons into layered skirts of lace, tulle and bejeweled satin. Hand embroidery, tiny belts and silk petals accent and soften the bold lines of this collection.
