Summer parties? Yes, you may accuse us of jumping the gun somewhat but over the last year we've conditioned ourselves to inhabit the near future in order to contend with the present and we're not deviating from that strategy just yet! With the first signs of spring making themselves apparent, we're looking forward to a summer of fun, friends and freedom... and a couple of beautiful floral dresses thrown in for good measure!
There's something about a floral dress that immediately inspires connotations of free-living, a carefree attitude to life, and the simple joy of living in the warm glow of the moment. The colourful blooms say something about us as individuals, too - that we can be both delicate and confident simultaneously; that we can be inspired by the natural details around us; that we find joy in the expression of colour.
Whether it's croquet on the lawn with a group of friends, or the annual summer party, a floral dress is always pitch perfect. We have selected three of our favourite styles from the new Spring/Summer 21 collection that we think you'll love. Each does floral in its very own way, from a bold bouquet to more subtle accents of petals, but we're sure you'll find great delight in wearing them this summer.
Decorated with palm fronds and tropical flora, our Florence dress is cut in a lightweight cotton mix. With a classic silhouette and v-neckline, it has a relaxed formality to it, perfect for dressier summer events.
NANCY DRESS CREAM
AMELIA DRESS IVORY
The most delicate of the trio, our Amelia dress in ivory Armenia silk features a coral Georgette skirt, slash neck and Italian embroidered silk organza. Fully lined, it's a wonderfully feminine choice for drinks with friends. The peach and nude tones also make it easy to wear with similar tonal hues or even coral pink and pastels.
