We’ve just launched our new range of linen clothes, and we thought we’d treat you to a profile of three key pieces from the collection. As summer approaches many of us are sorting through our wardrobes in readiness for warmer weather and vacations. If you are in need of a closet refresh, or just want to add some wearable new staples, our linen clothes are perfect for the coming season. The pure linen fabric wicks away moisture, keeping you dry and comfortable; and linen helps regulate body temperature, keeping you cool on hot days and warm on chilly evenings. Linen travels brilliantly too as you don’t need to worry about ironing (the crumples are part of its charm!), and it’s lightweight and easy to pack. If you are looking for some beautiful wardrobe staples, we’ve got just what you need.
Shown here in the gorgeous Aqua colour, this simple linen dress will perform all summer long. Cut in a flattering, timeless tunic shape, our favourite thing about this dress is the large pockets at the front. We are nuts about pockets on dresses – they add a casual charm and easiness to a garment, perfect for laid back summer days. The Felisa dress looks stunning on its own with a pair of pumps or sandals, but can also be dressed up for evenings or work with a well-cut jacket or a neat cardigan. The length is not too short and not too long, just skimming the knees, and there are cute ties at the back which add some interesting detailing. Basically, if you need a new summer dress, look no further.
This adorable linen blouse comes in white and indigo (shown here). We love its adorable capped sleeves, and the understated V detailing to the neckline. Cut from pure, soft linen this blouse will work brilliantly with anything, whether tucked into jeans or paired with a short skirt. Layer with woolly cardigans on cooler days, or with a long-sleeve tee underneath. Great for everyday wear. This blouse will wash amazingly, so no need to worry about ice cream spills or suncream smears, just bung it in the machine and even tumble dry on a cool setting if needed.
If you are fantasising about slow days on the beach or stretched out by the pool, you will love the Dona linen dress. Long and elegant, this dress is the ideal cover-up to throw over a swimsuit or for lounging about on holiday. The lightweight linen means that although there is a lot of fabric it still feels floaty, and the two side splits make it comfortable to wear. And there’s pockets (did we mention pockets?). Dress up with some heeled clogs and a scarf for evening cocktails, or pair with simple sandals for a laid-back look. Just picture yourself wafting across a sunny terrace, barefoot and relaxed, in this graceful beauty.
