A season favourite. A relaxed and elegant shirt style dress in our exclusive Glacier print. Soft collar and sleeves which skim the elbow. Shell buttons close the front of the dress.

'The Lost Pink Valley.' The Hindu Kush, the Pink and White Terraces, the past, all tinted rose and all lost today. Ingrid Starnes’ AW17 collection travels through places unreachable, with a romantic sadness and celebration. Fashion writer Eric Newby wrote a wonderful book, ‘A Short Walk in the Hindu Kush’, of his explorations in the 1950s of areas that are now Taliban controlled. You’ll still find the pink valleys and vast glaciers he describes, but out of reach. The collection also draws inspiration from the textures of the artist Mona Hartoum who explores territories like this, her Lebanon and Palestine. What we have now is special, and not forever. Imagination and memory,bespoke prints, embroidery, colours and textures make up an ephemeral story of beauty, hue and silhouette.
