The LBD – the Story of Little Black

The Little Black Dress, a myth and indispensable piece of clothing in every woman’s basic wardrobe. Why why why? And above all what?

An icon of fashion history has proved to us women good service for many years. The LBD (Little Black Dress) has become an essence of elegance and glamor without having to do much for it. 

We owe this to no one less than Coco Chanel, who in 1926 put the little black dress for the first time as a fashion must-have. Previously Black was still considered a mourning color and was not really noticed under fashionable aspects. Although already around 1600 black at the Spanish royal court under Philip II was worn only to the highest occasions. Coco Chanel made the simple dress “a sort of uniform for all women with taste”, For them it was a piece of clothing that both women can understand as well as carry. Minimalist and classic, a revolution in women’s fashion and a sign of new-found freedom.

Whether Betty Boop and Anita Ekbert extremely curvy and sexy, Scarteltt O’Hara rather strict, Jackie Kennedy or Lady Di edel and Kate Moss and Liz Hurley quite daring: Stars and starlets had their biggest performances in the Little Black. Audrey Hepburn also wrote in breakfast at Tiffany’s little black film history. Her Givenchy dress has created her personality and all that Audrey Hepburn still stands for. For C hristian Dior , the inventor of the New Look :Black can be worn at any time, any age and any occasion. A black dress is indispensable for a woman??. 

For years, the little black has now appeared in various shapes and variations and becomes an essential and absolutely timeless must-have . Thanks to constant innovations, it has not lost any of its invincible charm ever since. Each designer interprets it differently and defines his style. Whether graphic at Balenciaga, futuristic at Mugler, eccentric at Galliano or simply at Prada. Draped, asymmetrical, short, floor-length, with cut outs, embroidered or entirely in glitter.

What makes the myth of Little Black? 
The LBD gives an incorruptible look, it is sexy, the color black makes you slim and brings out the strengths of each woman even better. It is absolutely timeless and thus does not get out of style, it can easily be combined with accessories, it offers an infinite variety of styles and interpretations. It is difficult to be wrong, tasteless or unsuitable when worn.

A little black is the last salvation for the date when we do not know what to wear and the life insurance for any occasion. It is never unstated and gives with this discreet discretion this certain flair of simple elegance. Since it became the great classics of the twentieth century, the Little Black is surrounded by a touch of seduction, maturity, experience and also sex. It can be as severe as it is sensuous, can be a sign of restraint, or a crime, but it always gives a woman the certain something. It has the power to create drama and yet a certain ease. In short, it is THE weapon of women par excellence!

Every woman should have at least one of them in her wardrobe and be assured in the choice that she emphasizes her merits. Although this garment is black, it can be treated as a canvas. That is, it may be decorated with accessories, worn with killer high heels and crowned with dramatic jewelry.
