New Spring dresses from Feral Childe

New dresses are in from bi-coastal designers, Feral Childe. Coming from fine art backgrounds these ladies create their own designs AND their own textiles. Love. For spring they found inspiration from an old book they dusted off in their studio called Tarquinia. Inside were pages filled with images of ancient tomb paintings and bronzes. Instead of creating an all over print, the textiles were made around the construction of the garment for a one of a kind look.

We are in love with this coral number above. The silk was digitally printed (for an eco-friendly, water saving approach) and pleating along the side was made using a vintage press.

We're also loving this adorable one of a kind geometric print sleeveless blue dress with coral trim. Wear it with strappy sandals, long necklace and a messy up-do on warmer days, or layer it over a long sleeve tee, scarf and boots when it's cooler.

We've got lots of great new spring items in the shop. Stop on by and take a peek!
