It’s always good to see an old label back on the modern-day high street. Saying that, I don’t think Horrockses retro-style dress collection is on the high street, as it’s an exclusive at online site ASOS.
‘Horrockses Fashions’ was at its peak in the 1950s, creating dresses very much of that era with its colourful cottons catching the eye in the windows of fashion retailers of the day. The good news is that the original winning formula is still in place.
Ok, there is some concession to the modern era, but you are still talking retro shapes and equally retro fabrics that are ideal for a big night out on a summer’s evening. You can check out the full range on the ASOS website, but we have picked out a few here to whet your appetite.
Above is the Horrockses Monica Prom Dress, while below is the Pineapple Mini Prom Dress with Bow Back and below that you’ll find the Lucille Midi Dress.
Note that none of the range comes cheap though. Crop tops in the range start at £32, but for the dresses, you are looking at a starting price of around £125.
