Escape of the Nightingale
The collection is inspired by the story of an Eastern princess, coveted for her beauty in the gilded cage of the Emperor’s palace, who breaks the bounds of ritual to join with the sky, the air and nature. Lanterns, throne and formal portraits give way to dance, movement and play. Drawing on this tale, the collection features silk pyjamas, kimonos, robes and kaftans embellished with our signature hand-drawn artwork and a dazzling colour palette. Mix and match cherry blossoms, fantastical song birds, polka dots and psychedelic chrysanthemums in print and jacquard weave – some in neat repeats, others wild and gloriously free. An introspective palette of contrasts with soft hues and bright dream colours. Burgundy, teal, cream, silver grey and seafoam, are accented with terracotta red, rose and a myriad of blues. Crafted in silk jacquard, satin and georgette, silhouettes range from formal to free, framed with contrast edgings and linings.
