Why we love nature’s finest fibresJune 2018 Style Advice
You may have noticed that here at David Nieper we have a passion for natural fibres. Their lasting beauty is matched by their breathable comfort, and they have an almost magical ability to keep you warm when it’s cold, and cool when it’s hot. So this summer, think about adding some splendid silk and pure, pristine cotton to your wardrobe.
Dress in cotton comfort
Nothing says summer like a light-as-air cotton dress. The cotton that we choose for your clothes is particularly special. Our buying teams select cotton from small, family-run mills in the foothills of the Alps. Their commitment to quality and time-honoured, traditional methods is in tune with our own values.
We particularly love the unique way they ‘finish’ cotton fabrics by softening them in the pure-as-pure-can-be natural glacial water from the mountains.

Supreme silk style
For an even more luxurious alternative, treat yourself to a pure silk dress. As a natural fibre, silk has all the same breathable and insulating properties as cotton, plus irresistible softness and splendour.Shop Silk Dress
Don’t forget to add some cotton knitwear to your stylish summer wardrobe. Cotton yarn is ideal for cardigans and jumpers to keep on hand for when the sun has dipped below the horizon but you simply aren’t ready to go back indoors.Shop Cotton Knits
We recommend that you always choose natural fibres for your nightwear. Both woven and jersey cotton allow your body to breathe and maintain the cool temperature that’s necessary for unbroken sleep. On warm nights, woven cotton will help to keep you cool and comfortable. Jersey cotton is breathable too and has a lovely luxurious feel.
For a great night's sleep
Perhaps you’re looking forward to getting away for a break. Once again, natural fibres should be at the top of your packing list. We are very fond of featherlight overshirts. They’re ideal for protecting sensitive shoulders in the midday sun – and they can transform a simple outfit into something rather special. Our Luxury Overshirt is a truly sumptuous blend of silk and cotton – or you could choose the Luxury Silk Overshirt and enjoy breathable comfort and subtly shimmering pure silk.
