I wanted to introduce a ‘proper’ classic honest coat to the collection. This model is a re-work of our signature silhouette. This season it has been lengthened and the fit tweaked. The coat has been tailored from an Italian pure wool twill weave coating, and the entire coat trimmed in a matt silk. Cinching the waist in beautifully is the silk twill couture bow belt.
A very special, pure luxury winter coat. Also available in red..x
Beautiful British actress Emily Berrington wears the Blush Cape Shift in this week’s Hello magazine
A simple sensational piece for day through to dinner. Styled by Arabella Boyce
The beautiful Welsh actress Alexandra Roach was featured in the Shortlist magazine yesterday 16th July , wearing the Suzannah LBD; The Presidents Dress short. The styling is fabulous and encapsulates the mood of french new wave cinema perfectly. I love the mood of this shoot, created by the amazing stylist Arabella Boyce..x
I fell in love with this beautiful print from a french archive. I found the original artwork which dates back to the 1930s. The clean polka dots swirl into a divine floral pattern. I translated the colours of the print to give the design more depth, and translated it onto a smooth silk crepe, instantly giving the print a modern interpretation. The warm butter cream base colour is contrasted with a soft black and printed onto the most divine weight of silk by our printers in Como Italy. which holds a certain tailored structure whilst being of a light-medium weight. Divine to wear, and can be worn throughout the day looking just as immaculate from beginning to end.
One of the pieces we have created from this wonderful cloth is the 1950s inspired Dancehall dress It is a fabulous silhouette which has a beautiful tailored fit over the bodice , with a slim 3/4 sleeve. The dress is a ‘waisted’ silhouette with a divine full skirt which falls below the knee. The model in our shoot is of height 6ft, and so the dress appears a little shorter than our spec. The dress is available ‘off-the-peg’ in our ready to wear collection.
The dress looks fabulous with our wool and silk cream honest coat and gorgeous points, creating THE most divine look for a winter wedding or chic society event. Whilst the dress itself can be styled down with a smart blazer or simple merino knit and ballet flats for day. The dress looks divine with smooth bare hosiery and opaques for the winter months too. A season less investment piece.
I bought a beautiful quirky pineapple embroidered 1950s cocktail dress!..fell in love with the gorgeous inspiration. It took me on a journey and I translated it into a beautiful, pretty and fabulously frivolous silk printed culotte suit.
The charming piece has been captured by Stella Loves..in the Sunday Telegraph and the Telegraph style agenda..x
Our gorgeous client and sales associate Gloria Budd wore the beautiful Lucille fifties dress at the Henley Festival this Sunday 13th 2014, and received the BMW best dressed! Congrats Gloria! As stunning as ever! ..x
The Block Shift. An effortless addition to the AW14 collection. Chic, sportif and versatile. A wonderfully executed style. The top of the dress is tailored from Italian silk acetate jersey which is compact, and bonded. It has a wonderfully smooth texture to give a chic clean look, with an ounce of ‘give’ to ensure a closely tailored fit which is comfortable and wearable from day through to dinner. The skirt part is cut from our Italian silk polyester weave twill, which is durable and easy. It has a remarkable ability to be worn all day without looking like it has been. Fully lined. with exposed swiss zip for step in ease and aesthetic appeal.
