Here's Dita in Melbourne launching her capsule clothing line at David Jones. I was so cross that the launch was at 10am on a Friday, so I was at work and couldn't go! The collection, called 'Muse', consists of five pieces, which will be priced at $600-$900 a piece. The dress Dita wore to the launch is part of the collection, and has what looks like a bias-cut skirt with a fitted, draped bodice, and three red shoe-string straps on the shoulders.
Dita tweeted a photo of her cat, Aleister, lying on some of the silk print used for this dress. You can see up close that it has a pattern of roses and elegant hands with red fingernails (with Dita's signature half-moon manicure!). This fabric has a blue background, and the one that Dita is wearing has a pink background, so it's probably available in two colourways.
Dita attended Derby Day at the Melbourne Cup, wearing the 'Follow Me' dress from her Muse collection, a one-shouldered red dress with a full skirt, draped bodice, and a floating panel/train at the back. It's very classic.
Here is a sketch of the design, which will be available in black or red, and a look at the label.
This is the black version.
Dita's hat was by Philip Treacy. I love it, the colour is wonderful, and it's so over-the-top but quite feminine too.
Dita tweeted a picture of herself wearing her 'VIP Coat' from the Muse collection, so that makes three pieces so far. It looks like a classic trench, but the colour! Wow, I would love to get my hands on that!
It also comes in black. Love the nipped in waist, and the full skirt. I think if I were to splash out on one piece from the collection, it would be this. I bet it will be the most expensive though!
This is the 'Showcase' dress from the Muse collection. A black velvet, sleeveless sheath dress, very fitted.
Here's a closer look. Personally , I really like it, it's simple and elegant and very sexy.
And last of all, this dress. I can't find any other information about it, but it looks like a fitted jersey dress with a high neck and long sleeves. Plain but very versatile. Hope it's in a wool jersey! The 'Muse' collection will be available at David Jones in January 2012.
