Treat-yourself texturesOctober 2019
What’s your favourite thing about late autumn? For us, it’s the richness of colour and texture.
When we think of October and November, we imagine the scent of cinnamon and nutmeg and the lavish palette of gold, red, and bronze. It’s a time of fragrant, slow-cooked stews, cream-topped hot chocolates, and thick, soft blankets. And in this season of decadent flavours and irresistible indulgences, we simply can’t get enough of silk and velour.
These fabrics feel warm and wonderful against your skin and come in all kinds of luxurious, autumnal shades. Here’s why they’re must-haves this season.
Pure silk womenswear
All silk is special. But ours is extra special. We use only the very best quality silk with a high momme count, which is similar to a thread count for cotton. Not only that, but each and every garment is meticulously crafted by hand in our Derbyshire sewing rooms.Shop silk
Quality velour womenswear
If you’d like something a little cosier but just as luxurious, discover sumptuous velour. This plush, thickly piled material combines the regal look and feel of velvet with the wearable comfort of a knitted fabric. It’s utterly scrumptious, particularly in decadent autumnal shades and jewel tones.
Velour is superbly soft and luxe, which makes it especially good for after-dark dressing. Try it in our luxury dressing gowns or scene-stealing occasion wear, but take note: these garments demand to be styled with a glass of red wine!
Once you’re swathed in silk or snuggled up in velour, you might find yourself wondering why you don’t treat yourself more often. Perhaps just another look at the nightdresses...Shop Gowns
