With spring well and truly here, it feels as if the time is right to find the joy in getting dressed up again. The new Autograph collection features relaxed, one-step dresses and easy separates with wear-forever appeal, crafted from premium-quality fabrics: think pure silk, or Irish linen made using traditional methods. Give your capsule wardrobe a sense of escapism with this beautiful bamboo-print linen midi skirt featuring a sarong-style tie that will lend your day-to-day outfits a relaxed vacation vibe. Just add an ivory silk T-shirt and smart sandals for a chic look that says summer is on the way.
Punchy pink shades and feelgood prints were key themes of the spring/summer catwalk collections. This hot pink satin floral-print dress brings them together in one easy-to-wear design that nails spring’s optimistic mood. It’s a versatile style that can be worn with chunky boots or sneakers now and barely there sandals soon. And when the time comes to return to the office, it will be a star player in your 9-to-5 closet. The print also appears on an elegant statement blouse that pairs perfectly with our classic cropped leather pants, a soft napa leather midi skirt or smart indigo jeans.
Like a pair of straight-leg jeans, a basic T-shirt or a black blazer, a white shirt is a versatile capsule wardrobe staple with seasonless appeal. The best white shirts transition effortlessly from night to day and beach to city, looking just as good worn with tailored pants as chucked over a swimsuit on vacation. Unexpected twists are an Autograph signature and we’ve given this classic white linen shirt a chic update with a detachable linen belt that can be tied at the front or back to create a more fitted silhouette. For an outfit that looks smart but feels laid-back, wear it with relaxed elasticated-waist linen pants and classic white sneakers.
