The 1940's Collection

The Cotswolds Story

The blooming Cotswolds are our final destination on this British tour. The bright colours of summer are played out in fuchsia, periwinkle, peridot and white against the rolling landscape of soft cottons and luxurious jacquards which offers the promise of a relaxed summer.

The Cotswolds is the place of romantic inspiration for Jane Austen, and equally the visual muse of Lewis Carroll, complete with tea parties, high summers and coming of age. Our unique print is a floral bouquet, teamed up with textured cottons in tonal hues, strong and delicate in equal measure. Soft gathered skirts for this story, with frills, pin tucks and piping for added detail.

The Henley Regatta Story

Fun in the sun at this prestigious boat race, established in 1839 at Henley-on-Thames and continuing and growing it’s traditions to this day.  The social event of the season, the Regatta has a strict dress code and as such it is the perfect picture for this stunning collection that blends across Little Lord & Little Lady, with strong navy, hues of blues, poppy reds and white to reflect the main colours of Henley but also to showcase the stunning scenery on the River.

The Chelsea Story

A show of flora in the delightful story, coloured by apricot, blossom, blush and sage highlighting the natural beauty of Chelsea. For heritage, our designers have focused on the annual flower show, established in 1912 and still a popular day trip in the Spring. The Royal tea parties, amazing sights and truly British pastime of gardening emphasises the long established tradition of passion for our beautiful scenery. Our unique ditsy floral print is the central visual for this story, and features in dresses and separates. Coupled with strong brocades, unique jacquards and soft chiffon, this story is a subtle yet stylish collection. Traditional tea dance silhouettes highlight the social nature of this London Borough which plays host to some of Britain’s most regal heritage.

The Sandbanks Story

With Summer in full flow, let’s take a trip to the annual Beach Polo tournament at Sandbanks. Filled with the colours of the festival, we have combined tan, Royal blue, sand and silver to showcase the horses and riders dashing over the glorious beaches, brandishing wooden mallets.  The event is the height of the social season for the upper class stepping out in London and, in this millionaires paradise off the Canford Cliffs in Dorset, it is most definitely the place to be seen.

For this unique print a floral in blue hues to reflect the impact the sea has on the beautiful flowers at the coast.  Coupled with gingham and squares on woven fabrics, a nod to a traditional British style and the polo field. This cool style is the epitome of class for the high summer, with block colour to keep the lines clean and neat.  Our usual intricate trims bring this story to life, especially as the detail is subtle yet luxurious, just like the location it represents.
