The ultimate velvet guide
This Winter season’s best-loved fabric? Velvet, of course. There is something utterly decadent, incredibly luxurious and beautifully comforting about velvet when the temperatures drop. At once chic and reassuringly warm, it functions equally well as elevated loungewear to snuggle in at home, as it does adding an instant dash of glamour to any going-out look. Here is an edit of some of our favourite Galvan velvet looks, from street style to party chic, casual to red carpet. Find your ultimate velvet dresses, jumpsuits, suits and cover ups to rock the velvet trend in style.

Caro Daur in Galvan
The epitome of cool & chic, Caro is velvet perfection in our Winter Sun Suit in Hunter Green. A best-seller, this design combines soft tailoring with comfort, and has been reissued year after year by popular demand in new colour ways. From midnight blue to emerald, aubergine to ruby, and our original bold shade: golden mustard, it has become a Galvan icon for a reason.

We are big fans of Diane’s flawless style, and her new film 355, due to be released this year, looks like the ultimate girl power spy movie. Seeing her in our Aubergine Velvet Corset Jumpsuit in the film’s trailer makes it even more exciting!
