Meet Rita! A new dress style for SS18 - Rita features a flattering v-neck, full skirt and gorgeous tulip sleeves.
Our new Spring/Summer collection includes three special prints that feature synchronised swimmers! This is our simplest print of the three - a beautiful all-over design of diving ladies in their vintage swimsuits and matching swimming caps! Evoking the awe-inspiring formations of synchronised swimmers as featured in the Hollywood films of Esther Williams, this captivating design will have you dreaming of warm days - with or without a splash!
Rita is a classic, feminine dress that is made carefully to the highest standards by our U.K seamstresses; with a concealed side zip and fitted waist, finishing just below the knee for most women.
All of our fabrics are unique - designed and hand illustrated by Palava founder Bryony in our little London studio. Our dress production is environmentally friendly; we always aim to use sustainable fabrics that have minimal impact on the environment and we strive for zero waste.

We recommend matching your Rita dress with either one of our bright coloured classic cardigans or our statement knitwear. You can also choose a beautiful hand-crafted matching hairband to complete the look.
