Luxury minimalistic brands Alighieri Jewellery and BIAS have joined forces to create a stunning three-piece collection to celebrate the New Year. This elegant and romantic collection consists of BIAS silk slip dresses with Alighieri golden chain straps carefully handcrafted in their Hatton Garden Studio. Each piece tells a different story inspired by Dante’s Divine Comedy.
Created in a very limited run, each piece feels incredibly unique and personal. The simple and flattering feminine cuts of BIAS are accompanied by Alighieri’s signature molten and imperfect jewellery. This harmonized composition is perfect for any occasion, making it the ultimate black dress.
“Olive and I dreamt about creating the ultimate Modern Heirloom: the slip with tough gold chain straps, dripping with molten stories. A dress you could wear to your best friend’s wedding with sling-back mules, or to the office over a white t-shirt. Alighieri has always been about timeless classics with a twist, and I’m so happy to finally have our own slip dress to live in, for seasons to come. Creating it with one of my best friends has been a magical journey” says Rosh Mahtani, Alighieri founder.
This collaboration is the fruit of a long-lasting friendship between the brand’s founders, Rosh Mahtani and Olivia Pope. Combining their passions and specialities, Rosh and Olivia have created a truly unique hybrid of clothing and jewellery.
“I am Rosh’s earliest customer and biggest fan, so it is a dream for me to able to work with her on this capsule collection of dresses for BIAS. I dress simply and classically with layers of Alighieri jewellery to add interest, so this collection encapsulates that sentiment. A timeless wardrobe staple with a sprinkling of Alighieri’s signature embellishments, so all the accessorising is done for you.” says Olivia Pope.
