Favourite pieces from our collection…x

We have produced a beautiful Spring Summer 2018 collection with new printed silk pieces to style up or down. Key pieces include our silk Odette Jumpsuit with a classic coin sized polka dot, a wonderfully flattering relaxed wear. Similarly, tailored from our gorgeous silk which has been printed in Italy the silk polo neck top in the reverse coin sized polka dot and high waisted slim trousers are perfect versatile pieces to take you stylishly from day through to event! We have also updated our classic tea dress with a round slit neck line and 3/4 sleeves. Introduced in several prints, the poppy red quill feather print is certainly a team favourite and can translate through the seasons easily.

Suzannah speaks at Coworth Park… x

We were invited to take part in one of a series of Speakers lunches at Coworth Park Ascot. The audience enjoyed a beautiful Michelin Star 3 course lunch with champagne and chocolates. During coffee Suzannah spoke about her history and told the story of her career and the brand path. Then she progressed into the etiquette for the social season events and what to wear for black and white tie whilst our beautiful model Rebecca walked the room in her Suzannah outfits dressed from head to heel in coordinated stylish millinery dress coat and shoes. Kate Wilkinson provided the make up and hair and created Rebecca into a perfect modern-day Audrey Hepburn. Here are the etiquette guidelines with accompanying photographs from the event…x
