For summer 2020 our Own Range not only features gorgeous dresses to suit different figures (read Rowenas blog about them here
) but also some really good mix and match separates that you'll reach for time and time again.
The Liberty Tana lawn cotton is dream to wear. It is a cotton that behaves like silk – ultra-fine, with a fluid hand-feel and intense depth of colour that is truly unrivalled. An everyday marvel of a dress material that is made without the use of crease resisting chemicals or irritating allergens, Tana Lawn cotton is soft yet durable, cooling yet warming, and even machine washable.
The red berry Wiltshire print matches perfectly to our red Notting Hill skirt (view the skirt here) but thanks to the touch of teal in the print it also works splendidly with our teal Waterloo trousers (view them here)
! Thank you to Katie (@instantgoddess) for the fab pictures.
For our Notting Hill skirts we stuck with the GOTs certified organic cotton that Rowena delves into a bit more in her blog here
. The fabric lends itself really well to this panelled full skirt. and we're pleased with how well it washes and wears.
Now if you know us then it will come as no surprise that our Notting Hill skirts have pockets! We are always harping on about pockets because they're important to us and to many of you. I won't start listing all the reasons why they're important, but I will point out that the pockets in our Notting Hill skirt are practical. And by that I mean you can actually fit things in them. Even the biggest of phones fit in them. Along with your keys, purse and a snack. And don't worry the skirt has just the right amount of fullness that the line of the skirt isn't ruined so fill 'em up!
When the temperature drops, you can team your Notting Hill skirt (view the blue one here)
with one of the much loved Emmy cardigans
. Whilst they are not specifically part of our Own Range, I'm including them here as they always feature in our general collection throughout the year as they are the ideal layer for many of our outfits. Thank you to Mona (@goodshoesbadhair) for the fab picture.
Now we know not everyone likes a full 1950s style skirt so if you fall in that camp then you should really try our pleated Wandsworth skirt (view it here)
. It has a more 1940s style and was actually developed from an original vintage skirt. We updated the design by making the zipper concealed and by adding, you guessed it, pockets!
We wanted another fabric option for you too so this skirt is actually made from the same crepe fabric as our Pimlico dress (view it here)
. Everyone who owns that dress has raved about the fabric. It washes and wears well and is just really lovely to wear. We're thrilled to be able to offer more pieces in it.
When we design our Own Range clothing we're thinking long term. Our pieces are made to last. These are not items that you wear for a season and throw out. So for those of you who have shopped our wool suiting in previous years you will be pleased to hear that the red berry Witshire print Hampstead blouse
also works well with our wine wool suiting and the green/blue Floral Affair print Hampstead blouse
works well with our brown wool suiting.
