Intelligent design: the details that set our clothes apart

October 01, 2023

Considered details sit at the heart of our handcrafted designs, just as they have done for sixty years.

From beautiful dresses with thoughtfully lengthened sleeves to perfectly placed, figure-enhancing front pleats, our designers hone each piece for the ultimate fit. Combining an intuitive eye with decades of style experience, they craft clothes to suit your shape – not the general market.

Discover the details that set our clothes apart, and help you build a wardrobe of joyful designs.

Textured Cowl Neck Top & Jersey Skirt

Perfectly coordinated separates

The solution to finding the perfect fit on the top and bottom? Stylish separates.

Simply choose your sizes and enjoy the freedom of limitless looks. Wear together for the effect of a two-piece or mix and match with wardrobe favourites. Our coordinating sets span both print and colour-block iterations, so you can be sure to find the perfect pieces.

Bramble Jersey Dress

Longer-length short sleeves

Sometimes, short sleeves can feel a bit… short. That’s why we design many of our tops, tunics and dresses with considerately lengthened short sleeves, plus lots of elbow-length options.

It’s these little touches that other brands seem to forget, and which make David Nieper designs feel so good to wear.

Relaxed Jersey Top

Signature stretch jersey

We build our collections around a luxurious curation of fabrics. But we’ll always have a special place for supersoft jersey – it’s one of our customer favourites.

Our signature jersey drapes beautifully, never clings and feels delightfully soft against your skin. It keeps its shape and stays crease free – we’ve dubbed it a wonder fabric!

Lovely jersey has pride of place each season. We use it to design dresses, tops, skirts and more, so you can enjoy its irresistible feel whatever the occasion.

Pure Wool Trousers

Discrete elastic waistbands

Unfortunately, fashion doesn’t always put comfort and style together. We believe otherwise. Years of experience tell us that clothes can feel as comfy as they look – it’s all about intelligent detailing.

That’s why you’ll find flat-fronted, non-restrictive stretch waistbands in our skirts and trousers. Sitting perfectly neat at the front with comfort you’ll wish you’d discovered years ago, our signature waistband achieves a streamlined silhouette.

And, because they’re so discreet, there’s simply no compromise on style.

Vine Print Jersey Skirt

Luxe linings and layers

We design our linings to smooth, skim and move with you as you go about your day. Some of our stylish tops, tees and dresses feature a double-lined front for enhanced coverage and shape. The majority of our skirts, meanwhile, are fully lined to ensure they last longer, fit better and drape beautifully – today and for seasons to come.

“We really do think it’s the details that set our collections apart – being comfortable isn’t always a top priority in women’s fashion but it’s key to our designs. With comfort comes confidence, so creating stylish pieces that look and feel great to wear is always our goal. The styles may change, but our signature approach of crafting high quality, thoughtfully-made clothes remains.”
