The Bella Swallows

The Bella dress is a chic, soft silk printed blouse dress. Vibrant colours dance on a white Italian fluid silk crepe canvas, creating divine artistry that has been created in collaboration with the illustrator Susannah Garrod. The elegant bodice and skirt, blouson sleeves, and refined collar are adorned with silk-covered buttons. A divine piece, perfect for city day wear, a holiday escape, a divine dinner or race meet. 


Suzannah and Susannah Garrod's collaboration created a captivating enchanted forest print with birds, magical elements and trailing ivy. The centrepiece is a delicate and feminine hand-painted swallows design. The divine artwork dances around the dress. Immaculately and pristinely printed by our partners in Como, Italy.

The Crawford

A reimagined classic. Our customer favourite shirt waister silhouette has been brought back again this season with a beautiful new print. The lightweight silk twill fabric and flattering tie waist fit give the Crawford an effortless feel. Style with our olive green sheepskin cape in colder months for a chic tonal look.

This beautiful dress is made from lightweight, Italian silk twill, printed with a stunning painted blossom design. Lilac mauves and fresh white pop beautifully against the khaki green canvas. 

 The Bella Dots

A true modern classic, the Bella Polka Dot dress features a button-through design in a magenta and hot pink polka dot print. Made with premium Italian silk crepe de chine, the dress is the perfect piece to take you from day to dinner. The bodice is softly tailored with box pleats and side pockets in the skirt.

Featuring long blouson sleeves with elasticated cuffs, this dress is fun, chic and super pretty. A neat stand-up collar frames the face, and a detachable necktie can be tied into a chic bow around the neck or used as a tie belt to accentuate the waist. The dress is adorned with beautiful heart-shaped glass buttons that run down the centre front.

 The Trixie

Designed in collaboration with the award-winning botanical artist MarieLuise Bantel, this new-season silhouette is based on our best-selling shirt waister style. The classic silhouette of the Trixie is effortlessly elegant, making it a beautiful choice for modern event dressing.

A pattern of delicate wildflowers is interspersed on a canvas of the finest silk twill to create this floral beauty. It was designed in collaboration with award-winning artist MarieLuise Bantel.
