There's nothing the fashion set love more than a supremely extra party dress—especially during the festive season. While The Vampire's Wife has held the top spot for a few years now, we have a feeling this year's new entry, Taller Marmo, just might be about to steal the spotlight. Named after the Spanish word "taller," meaning workshop or studio, and "marmo," the Italian word for marble, the Milan-based label was founded in 2013 by designers Riccardo Audisio and Yago Goicoechea. With its distinctively nostalgic spirit, Taller Marmo specialises in luxurious eveningwear, specifically kaftan silhouettes that hark back to pieces worn by the likes of Elizabeth Taylor and Sophia Loren in the 1960s and '70s.

While each dress has its own unique aesthetic—from jewelled tones and monochrome neutrals to fringed and feathered trims—they all boast a flowing fit that drapes beautifully on the body. Spotted on the likes of Lily Allen and Pixie Lott as well as plenty of influencers and fashion editors, Taller Marmo is fast becoming the go-to luxury brand for statement-making looks. And just in time for the party season, no less.
We saw a smattering of the statement pieces throughout summer, but the whole Who Wear Wear team, as well as the entire fashion world, agree that party season is when these sensational dresses really come into their own. Choose from an array of colours, hemlines and sleeve lengths and let the dress do the talking.
