The debut Three Graces pre-fall collection presents a seamless evolution of our signature easy elegance.
Taking the same principle of timeless style but shifting the context to cooler climes, this cohesive and considered edit puts the wearer centre stage; acting as a canvas for her character and personal accessories. These are clothes to quietly enhance rather than overpower.
A kind of poetic grace is encapsulated in each piece; bringing to mind a modern-day version of Johannes Vermeer’s Girl with a Pearl Earring. This season’s sumptuous hues – from saturated sapphire to bottle green, earthy brown and inky blue– could similarly be lifted straight from Vermeer’s pigment-rich palette; echoing the compelling, sensual appeal of his scenes of everyday life.
This painterly quality is also found in the collection’s prints. A new blanket check wool features a woven stripe where the lines have an ethereal effect, like the mark of a tailor’s chalk.
Effortless dresses, chic midi skirts, expertly tailored trousers and relaxed tops are made from exquisite Italian fabrics - woven especially for Three Graces. Lush corduroy gives substance to curved lines and sculptural silhouettes. A slinky sweater dress cut from boucle jersey envelops the wearer in a cosy cocoon. Wool viscose adds depth to a sequence of draped and pleated wardrobe staples, from wrap-waist dresses to wide-leg trousers.
Perfect for layering as the temperature drops, these garments make ideal travel companions. Ease and versatility are high on the agenda, with each piece designed to be mixed, matched, dressed up, dressed down or whipped out of a suitcase at short notice.
Gentle 70s influences are felt throughout, with swooping bell sleeves, flared hems, high waists and midi-lengths adding feminine charm. Luxurious detailing, like couture-style stitching, ensures a thoughtful finish.
