Named after Elaine of Astolat, the Elaine Dress really brings the romance. Made from beautiful 100% Cotton Broderie Anglaise, with cotton guipure lace trim and a scalloped edge.
The seams of the dress mimic armour plating and the billowy sleeves are shirred with elastic along the bicep to create a medieval effect double puffed sleeve. Completing the look is a wide waistband with a tie belt. The dress will be 120cm in length in final production.
Printed in our bespoke navy Morris print featuring dragons, knights and British wildflowers inspired by the Arts and Crafts movement of the late Victorian period.
Eva wears a UK 8-10 and is 6ft wearing the heeled boots pictured.
Enter the world of legends, dragons, mythological creatures and magic. Inspired by the local folklore of Alderley Edge Forest and it’s resident wizard, our jewel toned prints this season take on the form of ancient stories, retrieving swords from mysterious lakes, welsh tales of dragons with acts of chivalry and bravery. Paired with classic tartans, regal elements and William Morris inspired symbolism to evoke this mystical era but in an updated and wearable style.
To encapsulate the romance of this theme we looked to the pre-Raphaelites, who reinvigorated interests in classic British folklore in beautiful painted form, with flowing fabrics and unconventionally loose waistlines. We have imbued a sense of medieval dress in our shape design by taking bodice shapes and panelling details from armour and doublets, with gathered puff sleeves to create this iconic whimsical silhouette.
