The breezy fabric along with statement accessories catapult this dress to ancient BC. This is certainly a look that Cleopatra of Egypt, Khaleesi the Dothraki wife of Khal or Lucretia of house Batiatus would effortlessly pull off. Think Alexandria (Egypt), Westoros (Game of Thrones) and Rome (Spartacus). Now all I need is some bronze and brass cuffs and rings and I am all in character.
All these women were supposed to be soft and feminine and at the same time maintain an intimidating presence over their kingdoms. Tough hardware with the dramatic necklace and corset belt paired against soft flowy chiffon is a deliberate reflection of the two opposite dimensions. As in; if I like you the world will be yours, but piss me off the slightest and I’ll toss you over an endless cliff or chop your head off. Smile.
