Christmas party season is fast approaching, and with it comes the stress of finding a party perfect outfit to wow the crowds. Fear not – this festive season we’ve created a range with all you need for a Cracking Christmas…and that includes designing a beautiful capsule collection of treasure-forever festive fashion and accessories that are made for party season, from festive get togethers, to Christmas Day itself, to New Year’s Eve.
The star of this fashion show is a favourite print from our Library – Hampstead Rose. This large scale floral print features big bouquets of roses and other blooms, and we’ve given it a chic makeover for winter with a beautiful palette of rich jewel tones – sapphire blue, emerald green, amethyst purple, ruby red and citrine yellow – on crisp ivory and deep navy grounds.
Both colourways appear on bags this season, from failsafe styles such as our busy bag and zipped handbag to premium embossed totes in mini, handbag and zipped styles. We know many of you like your wallet to match your bag so we’ve taken care of that too – be sure to check out our new zipped style with removable zip purse. We think these would make great gifts too – hint, hint!
We’re possibly even more excited about our Hampstead Rose fashion though – think beautiful shell tops, midi skirts and shift dresses in crisp ivory cotton sateen, which has a touch of stretch for comfort and a beautiful sheen that shows off the print to its very best advantage. Wear with the softest faux fur collars in complementary sapphire and amethyst tones – snuggly and stylish!
The midnight blue colourway stars on two of our bestselling fashion shapes – a pretty dress and pleated skirt – cut from drapey, figure-flattering crepe. Why not go matchy matchy and pair with a mini leather-trimmed bag in the same print?
Hampstead Rose also inspired the two beautiful knitwear pieces that round out our fashion story. The wool and cotton blend ivory jumper and midnight cardigan are both embroidered around the neckline with intricate, colourful flowers and embellished with sparkling crystal beads and sweet little pom poms. So pretty, and perfect for party layering.
Complete your Hampstead Rose collection with a scented candle in a beautiful printed glass keepsake votive. The sustainable soya wax has a delicious seasonal Pomegranate and Cassis fragrance and will burn for around 30 hours – we’ll be lighting ours to set the scene as we get ready for parties and festive nights out!
