We spent enough time banging on about Kate Sylvester's winter 2015 collection, Tartt., in September last year when the designer showed her collection at New Zealand Fashion Week.

Basically, we're predisposed to like any fashion collection when it has been inspired by literature, but we're particularly predisposed to like it when it has been inspired by Donna Tartt's gothic college murder mystery, The Secret History. Kate Sylvester effortlessly evoked the group of Classical Studies students who – not to ruin anything for those of you who haven't read it – become embroiled in controversy after taking their obsession with their subject of choice way too far.

The collection is now available, so get your Ivy League on below, or shop our picks from the collection (the Stella Dress!) over here.
