New Fabrics

Our designer, Ruth has been busy creating a plethora of new stunning embroidered silk fabrics which will be launched officially from March but available to view and order, only from our showroom, from early February. 


Fabric & Style Inspiration

For a Spring or Summer wedding, envision a palette that captures the essence of the season, featuring fabrics such as Tahiti, Mother of Pearl, Avalon, and Soft Pistachio. Each fabric exudes its unique charm, and when created in one of our coat designs over a silk shift dress, the result is a glorious blend of elegance and seasonal vibrancy.

Tahiti is one of our plain raw silk fabrics, with Mother of Pearl being the same fabric but with a subtle, delicate floral embroidery. These soft, pink/taupe, beautiful fabrics cast a soft and iridescent sheen that evokes the delicate gleam found within the inner layer of a seashell. These luxurious fabrics add a touch of opulence, making it an ideal choice for those who seek a refined and elegant ensemble.

Avalon is an elegant, natural green embroidered raw silk, adorned with intricate gold embroidery and features a subtle warm sheen. This fabric is the epitome of glamour and sophistication and truly elevates an outfit. To really allow this fabric to shine, we recommend pairing it with one our silk shift dresses in Oyster Gold or Star

Soft Pistachio is one of our more classic embroidered silks incorporating a pale pistachio green silk with a pattern in sage green and burnt orange. Shown above in a matching combination of our Lyra Coat and Bardot Dress in Soft Pistachio; it embodies the perfect style for simple, understated elegance.

Incorporating more soft, pastel colours is always a popular choice for Spring and Summer weddings. Our plain raw silk fabric, Moon Dust, combines the cool, calming hues of soft eau de nil and a subtle hint of blue, creating a more muted and refined colour palette. If you would like to add a touch of creativity then this fabric is also available in our embroidered silk fabric, Moon.

Annabel Allen, the milliner we are honoured to collaborate with, has created a gorgeous hat, as a part of her Shibumi collection, which is trimmed with our beautiful Moon Dust silk with a delicate arrangement of shaped ostrich feathers. It’s simply stunning and the perfect finishing piece to your Shibumi wedding outfit.


Trench Coats

Wearing a silk trench coat to a Spring or Summer wedding is a stylish and sophisticated choice, blending practicality with elegance. Opting for light and bright colours that complement the season such as pastels and florals can enhance the Spring/Summer vibe. This gorgeous, refined Trench Coat is the perfect wedding guest outfit or modern Mother of the Bride/Groom ensemble.

This lightweight design is the definition of a dress coat as it can be comfortably worn all day, without feeling the need to take it off. At a standard knee-length length, our midi silk trench coat is a versatile choice that can complement various dress lengths and styles and looks especially stunning when worn alongside one of our raw silk shift dresses.


Silk Suits

A modern silk suit can be a show-stopping choice for a Spring or Summer wedding, combining comfort and style, along with a contemporary edge to create a memorable and sophisticated look. Whether you choose to wear the jacket and trousers in the same fabric or different fabrics depends on your personal style and preference. Wearing the same fabric exudes a more traditional ensemble whereas mixing the fabrics adds an element of creativity and individuality.

If you're interested in elevating your outfit with a hat or headpiece, exploring the work of talented milliners like Annabel Allen can be an excellent starting point. A well-crafted and thoughtfully chosen piece can become a focal point of your ensemble, adding a touch of flair and individuality to your overall look.
