We don’t know what we’re more excited about here – Alessandra Ambrosio or the Coast Icons collection itself. Or the fact that we’ve bagged 25% off it (more on that later) Ringing in the start of occasionwear season – yes, that is a thing – Coast has reinvented the most-loved pieces from its archive to create a capsule collection that’s worthy of a red carpet starlet. Or supermodel, for that matter. And that’s where Alessandra comes in.
The Brazilian beauty is the face of Icons, and, having modeled for the likes of Armani and Ralph Lauren, makes the pieces look majorly high-fash. We’re still getting our heads around the fact that striped number is actually high street. But it is, and even without Ms Ambrosio’s model prowess to show them off, the clothes stand on their own. From ballgown skirts to dramatic dresses and cool jumpsuits, Icons has you covered for weddings, prom, the races, graduation or if you just want to add something a little fancy to your wardrobe. And with 25% off*, you definitely don’t need a supermodel salary to look as good as Alessandra.
“Bold stripes were all over the spring catwalks – I’m just wishing I had more than one wedding to go to this year so I’d have another excuse to slip into this showstopper.”
Gemma Yates, Fashion News Editor
Striped maxi dress, £195
“This totally makes me think of Raf Simons’ Dior dresses. And that can only be a very good thing. Let it speak for itself with simple silver heels and minimal jewels.”
Hannah Banks-Walker, Fashion News Writer
“I live in my leather biker trousers, but this top will overhaul them for after-dark. When the occasion calls for something a little smarter, try it with the floral trousers or skirt.”
Bridie Wilkins, Fashion News Assistant
Sequin top, £89
“I like my occasionwear a little more edgy, so this striped number is right up my street. Plus, what’s not to love about elongating – and slimming – black and white stripes?”
