Adele's bespoke Chloe Glastonbury look took more than 200 hours making
" Where can I get Adele's dress?!" was the definite question being asked on Twitter as the Tottenham-born star performed her headline set at Glastonbury festival on Saturday night. For anyone wanting to get their hands on the floor-sweeping, flute-sleeved, 70s-inspired black gown it won't be a simple case of putting in an online order. The dress was a bespoke design by Parisian fashion house Chloe.
Adele and her stylist, Gaelle Paul, had actually turned to Clare Waight-Keller- the British imaginative director of Chloe- to produce a unique design inspired celebration culture over the years. The atelier has exposed that the dress took more than 200 hours to make, with buttons and shells hand embroidered onto the corset of the dress.
Their option makes ideal sense; Waight-Keller often draws inspiration from the free-spirited state of mind of the 60s, 70s and 90s for her collections, revealing clothes which stimulate retro music and celebration scenes. As a result, Adele's Glastonbury dress had an authentically classic look, appearing like it may have originated from the closet of Janis Joplin, Joni Mitchell or Stevie Nicks.
In an interview with The Telegraph last year, Waight-Keller discussed her seventies fixation; I grew up because age, Waight Keller says, and I believe it’s something that still has a massive influence in the brand; it has actually constantly dipped into that spirit. It's a sentiment which mixes completely with Paul's styling method for the Someone Like Your singer." I like the '60s and '70s references, which Adele uses wonderfully" she recently informed The Hollywood Reporter.
This is not the first time that Adele has actually used Chloe. In November 2015, she was imagined in New York embracing Chloe's luxe-bohemian signature in a lambskin jacket with fragile beadwork, including a fedora for additional authenticity.
It's no surprise either that Adele's Glastonbury look was a bespoke project. Paul and Adele have actually established a habit of working carefully with a design team to attain exactly what Paul recently called, "one terrific dress that (goes) the extra mile and that actually wow(s)." Simply put, they have discovered that investing the time to develop something which is perfectly tailored and considered for the occasion will always settle.
The "wow" part certainly worked for Glastonbury.
Adele finished her Glastonbury look with a scattering of delicate jeweler which chimed with the eclectic feel of her dress. A 3,300 'Alhambra' bracelet by Van Cleef and Arpels enhanced the appearance's haute-hippie result. On her little finger was a gold ring by Ruth Tomlinson, a fine jeweler understood for making "ethereal jeweler imbued with a transcendent sense of a lost era."
