From the perfect printed dress to a shimmer-flecked faux fur gilet, take inspiration from our designers and find party-ready pieces in our new collection. Get set to shine!

Your party-ready long sleeve occasion dress

A long sleeve occasion dress will see you from pre-Christmas gatherings to New Year's Eve drinks. Elegant and stylish with that all-important touch of warmth, you’ll always feel fantastic in a long sleeve occasion dress.

Winter Floral Keyhole Dress

Luxe Floral Keyhole Dress

Pull on an easy jersey printed dress for day-to-evening style. Our Winter Floral Keyhole Dress is a gorgeous choice – it’s just as suited to Sunday lunches as festive evening soirées. This Luxe Floral Keyhole Dress is another special printed dress. Bright with purple blooms and cut to a comfortable, semi-fitted shape, it’s the perfect feel-good piece for winter.

Perfect Ponte Dress

Luxurious Faux Fur Gilet

Prefer a colour-block style? You’ll be wearing this Ponte Dress all season – and next. Available in black and on-trend emerald, this bestselling dress is perfectly simple yet wonderfully stylish. Dress it down with boots or add some glam with accessories and a faux fur gilet.

Speckled Jersey Palazzos

Prints for make-a-statement style

Our love for print is no secret. We’ve been perfecting gorgeously vibrant designs for decades, and take pride in getting colour, quality and pattern placement spot on.


Just take a glimpse at these dazzling palazzos – aren’t they stunning! Discover the magic of a coordinating set by styling them with the matching wrap top or enjoy the captivating print as interchangeable separates.

We loved designing this Modern Jersey Top in supersoft jersey. With a contemporary crossover neckline and ever-wearable white and blue print, it’s a great piece to have as the weekends get booked up. We’ve created a skirt in the same print too.

Printed dresses are an occasionwear must, and this gorgeous devoré dress sings party season with its floaty, semi-sheer fabric and fabulous print. As do luxury silk scarves, of course – we print ours right here in Britain so you can complete your outfit with a flourish.

Lily of the Valley Silk Scarf

Satin Devoré Dress

Build outfits with elegant essentials

Beautiful prints need colour-block capsules, and we’ve got pieces you can restyle all season.

Discover our collection of classic trousers made from jersey, smart crepe and pure wool. These Classic Pure Wool Trousers are crafted from premium wool yarns and feature a flat front with elasticated back for comfort and fit. If your style calls for a skirt, we know you’ll love this Modern Micro-pleated Skirt. The soft satin-feel fabric falls beautifully around your legs, while the sheeny accordion pleats catch the glint of evening light.

A touch of sparkle never goes amiss during the festive season. Nothing says ‘party’ like the glint of glitter or the opulence of a faux fur gilet!

Shimmer Batwing Top

Collarless Evening Jacket

For instant sparkle, pop on our Shimmer Batwing Top. Detailed all over with silvery thread and styled with a modern twist front, it makes a statement with minimum effort. On chillier evenings, slip on this Luxurious Faux Fur Gilet or this Collarless Evening Jacket – we’ve made its tweedy fabric ultra-modern with a boxy fit and glimmery thread.
