While Vilagallo is a Spanish designer brand, it is very European in its tailored, feminine elegance. Using classic, simple silhouettes as the showcase for their stunning prints and textures – for SS18 they used a lot of embroidery detail and jacquard weave as well as bold botanical prints like the Katia Dress (main picture). Designed and manufactured in small runs to ensure the highest quality and heighten that sense of exclusivity – Vilagallo is still a ‘well kept secret’ on British shores.
Amongst Vilagallo fans (civilian and celebrity alike) they have become known for their patterned silks, mixed textures, beautiful tailoring and diverse prints – creating a modern take on popular classic shapes, such as the shift dress or tailored shirt. Designed to flatter and feel effortless to wear, in perfect lightweight summer cottons and silks – from statement shift dresses, to casual Breton stripe tees.
The hero piece for me has to be the Vilagallo coat – immediately identifiable (I’ve been stopped in the street before by women who can spot a ‘Vilagallo’ a mile off!) – their signature collarless, 3/4 length jackets are a wardrobe saviour. Fantastic worn over a simple shift dress, or with trousers and a blouse. They are lightweight enough for summer events, yet will work well into autumn as an ‘extra layer’.
