Cotton Poplin Midi Dress, £159
During the warmer months, lightweight and breathable fabrics are of the utmost importance. Our Cotton Poplin Midi Dress will keep you cool whilst maintaining a level of sophistication.
The cut of the collar and fluted skirt is reminiscent of the costumes worn by Audrey Hepburn in her Academy Award-winning film, Roman Holiday. Falling just below the calf, this versatile dress will effortlessly pair with pointed heels at the office or flat sandals on your next city break.
Leopard Print Sleeveless Dress, £169
Summertime marks the arrival of one of our favourite styles – the printed dress. Leopard print was a staple piece for the Parisian icons of decades gone by; Brigitte Bardot, Catherine Deneuve and Jeanna Moreau were all fans of the feline-inspired fabric.
Our Leopard Print Sleeveless Dress is a modern twist on a classic, crafted from a soft jersey fabric, it’s the ideal piece for all-day-wear. Follow Bardot’s lead and style yours with neutral accessories and leave the dress to do the talking.

It can be challenging deciding what to wear on balmy summer evenings - you want to be comfortable and confident but still look elegant. Next time you’re heading for al fresco drinks reach for our Silk Slip Dress – it’s the ultimate sartorial solution this summer.
A truly versatile piece, it can be dressed up for evening events with statement jewellery and strappy heels or worn more casually with sandals and your favourite sweater draped around your shoulders.
Pure Linen T-Shirt Dress, £99
Linen is another fabric that is perfect for summer. Our Pure Linen T-Shirt Dress is cut in a relaxed fit and can be styled with just about everything in your current rotation.
Winser muse, The Duchess of Sussex made sure that her wardrobe was full of the lightweight material whilst touring Australasia back in 2018. More recently she reached for it again, on her first outing with baby son Archie Harrison at the Polo. Although the Duchess has caused a recent surge in its popularity, linen will still remain a quintessential seasonal staple for years to come.
Marilyn Miracle Dress, £139
Inspired by icon Marilyn Monroe, the aptly named Marilyn Miracle Dress is the perfect choice for more formal occasions this summer. Designed with ruching around the stomach, it’s the ideal garment for concealing the areas that you may wish to hide.
Team it with silver jewellery and heels at a wedding reception or layered under a light jacket for client meetings.
