Luxe Linen: The Elevated Staples Crafted From The Most Summer-Ready Textile

Effortless, breathable and lightweight, no fabric exudes a summer sensibility quite like linen. As well as bringing a homespun appeal, the textile makes a timeless addition to your wardrobe, softening over time to age beautifully. As a natural fibre, linen is continually renewable, so the fibre source can be replenished and harvested again and again, making it a sustainable clothing choice that will stand the test of time.

This season, enjoy lightweight linen in new guises; see neutral co-ords and nonchalant dresses and jumpsuits. We’ve handpicked four of our most-desired linen staples for a distinctly modern spin on summer’s favoured fabric.

The Easy Co-ord

In a matter of seasons, head-to-toe dressing has evolved into a tried-and-tested styling trick, and it’s easy to see why. Rendered in a timeless shade of neutral oatmeal, our tie front linen blouse and curved hem linen skirt are a classic pairing that you will wear on repeat, whether you’re dressing for work, weekends or anything in between. For laid-back affairs, slip into a pair of easy sandals, or exude elegance at elevated occasions with accents of silver jewellery and a pair of leather sandals.

The Everyday Linen Trousers

Humble and understated, yet reliably cool, build your summer outfits around breathable linen trousers. Designed from a beautifully relaxed shape that falls just above the ankle, they offer a unique utilitarian approach to tailoring. From classic black to bold red and easy khaki, keep things casual by stepping into a pair of comfy sandals and throwing on a staple Bibi Bag for warm days spent strolling in the city.

The Timeless Summer Dress

Summer is the time to embrace the transformative power of a beautiful dress and our Molly dress is made for sun-kissed days. The breathable linen fabric with slit details makes for a summer dress you’ll want to sport all season. Simply add tasteful touches of jewellery, polished leather sandals and a classic handbag to be ready for anything – from a picnic in the park to attending brunch and a gallery, or even a special occasion. This is a dress that speaks for itself.

“Now is the time to embrace the transformative power of a summer dress - and nothing lifts our spirits as much as a style that makes a statement.”

The wear-anywhere jumpsuit

This Emmie Linen Jumpsuit is both cool and cooling for sunny days, with a sense of versatility you can rely on. The fitted bodice is tempered by relaxed, cropped legs that give a sense of ease and comfort. Its all-over black shade is a testament to the refined appeal of minimalist style, making it the perfect companion for city-dwellers. Style this all-in-one piece with sandals and a relaxed blazer for a contemporary look to take you anywhere.

“When planning outfits in the summertime, jumpsuits might not immediately spring to mind; however there is something to be said about the chic and easy qualities of a linen all-in-one.”
