Why we made this?
Our iconic shirt dress ‘Joy’ has a ‘sister’… Allow me to introduce 'Joyful’!! This exquisite dress highlights the beauty of Artisan block printing techniques which are a signature of our brand.
We’ve taken the best bits of our best-selling ‘Joy’ shirtdress (flattering A-line, cinched but comfortable waistline, structured collar and… pockets), and added a few details. Like a fuller, gathered full-length sleeve – which feels very lux. We’ve swapped the classic and slightly more ‘formal’ white collar for a contrast block printed collar. We’ve repeated this contrast border on the self-belt and cuffs and along the centre closure to create a really couture and unique look. It’s understated, chic elegance which, dare we say it… looks way more than its price tag.
NOTE: This item is created using traditional block printing methods and is hand-made by artisans. The 'print' therefore is not always in the same position as shown in these images and can contain minor unique variations.
Style NotesIf you like a more ‘classic’ look, then pair with some simple strappy black heels and a slim clutch for occasion dressing. Emily is wearing gold which sets off the black and gives a dressy look! The more adventurous can add a pop of colour by swapping out the belt and adding some pretty heels. Choose bright pinks, royal blue or red. If a busy day of meetings is on the agenda, pair with a simple kitten-heeled sling back and a structured blazer – Bond-style briefcase optional ;-)
We’ve worked hard to make sure the sizing is consistent with the average UK brand so take your ‘usual size ‘ as brands like Next, LK Bennet and Boden. Emily is wearing Size 10 / S and is 5ft 6. If you are between sizes, or like a more fitted silhouette, size down in this one! (Fin is 5.2 and wearing the Botanical in XS so you can see how this dress looks on a petite person).
