Labelled ‘The Ultimate Shirt Dress’ by Anna Murphy, fashion editor of the Times last year, Louise is back! To celebrate Palava's heritage and the origins of our hand-illustrated designs, we have re-released this vintage gem - our oldest print!
Louise - Ivory 'Roll Up, Roll Up!' is one of the first dresses ever designed by Palava. The fabric is from our archives, and because of this is not made from our usual organic cotton, but has a slightly thicker and more substantial feel to it.
Just as nice, but slightly different from our more recent cotton sateen. This limited edition dress has been made with care in our London manufacturing studio.
Louise is looking better than ever with a new cuff added to her sleeves. Louise has the same great shape as our no1 best seller, Cynthia. The only difference is her shorter sleeves. She continues to fit like a dream, have our trademark deep pockets and is available in such a great array of prints this year, you’re bound to find one that you love.
We use Corozo nut buttons on Louise - 'Roll Up, Roll Up!' - an ethical, sustainable and biodegradable alternative to plastic buttons (and a favourite choice in the 1920s!). Read more about the Corozo nut and why we love it so much here.
