The Modist

There was a period of time, around a decade ago, when body-con reigned supreme. Remember those Herve Leger bandage dresses? The Balmain shoulder dress? We’ve now come full circle, as the creation of The Modist reveals. Partly an attempt to cater to those who might need to dress more conservatively for religious reasons, the platform is essentially a fantastic edit of the best modest clothes produced by the world’s top designers. Christopher Kane, Mary Katrantzou, Emilia Wickstead, Marni, Peter Pilotto are just some the names who have come on board, and we can expect that number to grow as the site gains followers—which seems likely given how popular long sleeve, high neck dresses are across the board in fashion at the moment.  So if you like covering your shoulders and your arms, prefer midi and maxi to anything grazing the knee, this is the place for you.
