Oh to be five years old again. When a tutu was your wardrobe staple and it was ok to tear aroud acting out your ballerina fantasies to your heart's content. If you mourn those days then this for you. Bilitis Dix-Sept Ans. A Japanese label who make exquisite, grown-up versions of our daydream outfits; part ballerina, part Paris street style; full net skirts, heavy lace blouses, gathered yoke wool coats and angora sweaters; the imaginings of designers Yuko Seshimo and George Hoshi who dreamed up the line around Bilitis, an imaginary 17-year-old French girl. Five, seventeen, whatever age, they are indeed the kind of clothes dreams are made of. Timeless and ever so beautiful.
