Our cover girl for the February 2016 edition of Luxury magazine was robed in a tiered black dress from the Salvatore Ferragamo spring/summer 2016 collection. We styled the dress with dazzling gold accessories, and photographer Mazen Abusrour shot her against a steel electricity pile-on in the desert, located on the outskirts of Dubai.

If you’re shopping for an exciting spring getaway, this dress should be on your list. It’s ruffle-like tiers and bow-tied straps give it a playful energy, while it’s jet-black tone gives it an air of sophistication. When the dress was shown on the runway at Milan fashion week, it was paired with strappy heels and bold pearl jewellery. Similar designs were also sent down the runway, in different colours and striped patterns.

For our shoot, we gave our model a gold cuff with geometric cut-outs that echoed the shapes shown in the silver tower. The cuff, by Numa, can be found at Dubai-based boutique Boom & Mellow. To finish the look, she wore classic gold heels by Christian Louboutin.

The glory of this dress is that it’s best put on show outdoors, where there is a comfortable breeze to play up the volume of the design. Wear it with colourful cocktail rings to a daytime garden party, or with a leather jacket and a big bejewelled earcuff for a dinner date.
