The Lara chain back maxi is crafted in this season’s most on-trend fabric, plissé. With a delicate pleat effect, in a matte shine finish, this premium quality fabric feels luxurious & comfortable too.

That beautiful open, low V shape back is the ‘piece de resistance’ detail in this statement dress. With gold chunky rounded chain straps across the back of the shoulders; the rest of the back is completely open! Featuring a keyhole neckline at the front, it’s chic & understated - a timeless, sexy yet elegant dress.

Style with this season’s hottest emerald green accessories, or keep it classic with gold. All it needs is some amazing heels!!

Model is 5ft 9 & wears UK size 8. 

The fit is generous with good stretch, if in between sizes we recommend to go smaller.

Dress fastens at the centre back neck with a gold ‘necklace’ fastener & is adjustable with several loop options to make looser or tighter.

Chains can be removed for washing. Please follow instructions inside the garment.

Quality is very good

Hi there
I bought this for my 21 year old daughter and she loves the dress but unfortunately it is a little big. Not sure how to return it? Do you still have it in stock in size 6?

The perfect dress

It’s amazing. The lining is so heavy and luxe that it hides a multitude. The chain detailing is really beautiful
