THIS COMPETITION IS NOW CLOSED.
Looking for a feel-good festive look? Enter now.
Office parties and "friendsmas" may be a no-go this year, but we're frankly looking for any excuse to get out of the pyjamas we've been living in since March.
Step forward Lisou, the London-based womenswear brand that wants to put a silky, slow-fashion spin on your Christmas wardrobe. Designed in London and finished in Portugal, its treasure-box investment pieces are perfect for the (three-household) party season. And this, dear reader, is your chance to win a much-coveted £500 Lisou voucher.
Tanzania-born founder and head designer Rene Macdonald is a self-confessed vintage addict and bold dresser. And it shows. Lisou is an unashamedly bright, modern-retro affair. Throwback shapes - ruffled hems, billowing bishop sleeves, kaftan maxi dresses - are created from bright, fine silks adorned with house-designed patterns. Think metallic plisse, pussy bows, voile printed with hearts.
Perhaps you'll pair the ruched Lyla midaxi dress with a headband and face mask in matching blue, rainbow-print silk. Or try the one-shoulder Riva, a shimmering golden number. Our choice? We're channelling 70s vibes with the limited-edition Jade, a diamond-jacquard jumpsuit with a cinching belt, subtly flared cuffs and a far less subtle collar. It screams Saturday Night Fever in all the right ways.
Of course, Christmas is the season of giving. You'll be glad to hear that Lisou puts a portion of its profits towards supporting healthcare and education for young Africans. On home soil, it runs a creative competition between west London's state schools - winning students' designs are printed on a Lisou silk scarf and profits made from its sale go back to the school's art department.
So let's get this party started.
