As the weather gets warmer and sunnier, we're preparing our outfits for visiting the horticultural sights there are to see around London over the summer. The new collection celebrates some important landmarks like the Pagoda and glass houses of Kew, or popular events such as the Chelsea Flower Show.

Beatrice Cap - Ivory Chelsea Flower Show Dress

£155.00GBP

 This one is from the archives, if you are lucky it might even come with a little story book.

About the Style: Have you ever worn a fully lined dress? They feel so wonderfully luxurious to wear but are hard to come by these days. Beatrice is here to put all that right. She’s lined with the softest lightweight organic cotton. Beatrice is the dress we reach for when we want some classic and elegant simplicity. Her boat neckline has a twist with a pretty v-neck back. She has summery cap sleeves, an elegant tie belt and deep pockets.

Beatrice is made by Satnam and his team in our London factory.

Brand new for this summer, we introduce the Leah cardigan - a beautifully feminine nod to luxury vintage knitwear. Leah comes in a selection of solid colours, all with a lightweight basket textured knit, making them perfect for layering over our printed dresses.

About the Style: She is cropped, with a deep waist cuff to create an hourglass silhouette. Leah’s sleeves are full-length and slightly puffed, whilst her V-shaped neckline is accentuated by delicate scallop detailing to give the style a sophisticated finish.

She features a pretty mandarin collar that can be worn up or turned down, she has short sleeves, a belted waist, deep pockets, and a full skirt.

Kew Gardens

Royal Botanical Gardens at Kew are a must visit in London, if not for the "largest and most diverse botanical and mycological collections in the world"(1), then at least for the beautiful and architectural glass houses.

And of course no visit is complete without a stop in the gift shop for some postcards...
