High-fashion meets Halloween: Violet’s Box pop-up at Austique, Chelsea
Online fancy dress boutique Violet’s Box is set up at Austique, Chelsea and online until Saturday 2nd November. Stylist and party-planner Violet Naylor-Leyland has curated a beautiful collection of tasteful fancy dress outfits and accessories, which are available to buy or hire at some fairly reasonable prices. So far, the bestsellers have been the corsets, designed by Violet herself, catsuits and black lace bunny ears for ladies, while the pumpkin and bat suits have been quite popular with the men.
Violet will be on hand to offer expert styling tips at the Chelsea store throughout the pop-up. She states: “It feels absolutely perfect doing a pop-up at Austique this Halloween. I’ve always loved the luxurious but fun feel of Austique and I am a big fan of many of the beautiful labels they buy in.”
The boutique is a real feminine paradise full of hidden gems and exclusive labels. Stocking designs from the likes of Mara Hoffman and Markus Lupfer, and cult brands such as Lucas Paw Paw, Essie and EOS makes Austique a one-stop shop for all things feminine and fun.
Fabulous accessories are in abundance, but we’re most envious of the covetable jewellery collection. From delicate pieces from Jacquie Aiche and Sydney Evan to art deco opulence from Lele Sadoughi, the boutique has something for just about everyone. There’s a dreamy area with lotions, candles, books and lingerie that boasts a luxurious slumber party vibe and has great gift ideas for the holidays just around the corner.
Alongside Austique’s classic luxury labels, there is a certain flair of whimsy ingrained in their culture. After all, they’ve recently redecorated the shop’s walls in metallic gold polka-dots! The variety and light-hearted atmosphere make it the perfect pairing for Violet’s Box in this high-fashion meets Halloween dream-come-true.
