Timeless and chic
Chanel said: “A woman can be overdressed, but never over elegant.” The simplicity of the little black dress could never be considered overdressed. To this day, it is considered a garment one can rely on to be a good choice. Tracing the bold curve of social history across the 20th and 21st centuries, “Little Black Dress” explores the evolution of a definitive yet democratic style that, for more than a century, has embodied the shifting social tides of the modern world. In its ubiquity and versatility, the little black dress has delivered some of the most indelible images of our visual age. Endlessly appropriated and translated, each dress is imbued with the value of its day — from service to independence, from restraint to temptation, from glamour to grace.
A fashion icon
A style icon does not necessarily need to wear chic clothes. Created as a universal solution, the little black dress has conquered the world and can be found in the wardrobes of even the wealthiest women. For instance, Elizabeth II, who was viewed as a fashion icon, was one of the perfect examples of the ability of high society women to create a unique style. The little black dress was always present in her wardrobe. By the way, do you know that members of the Royal Family must always take a black ensemble with them? The right choice of clothing demonstrates a woman’s charm, mysteriousness, and self-confidence. Let’s look around.
The pendant coin dedicated to the little black dress created by the Lithuanian Mint portrays this fashion revolution and a true fashion icon, Elizabeth II. It is a unique and stylish gift for any woman or girl.
