Afternoon! I’m excited to share with you the debut collection from new luxury loungewear brand Violet and Wren today. I previewed the collection on Sunday at Miss Bush Bridalwear, one of our long term sponsors. The whole morning was filled with beauty, Violet and Wren’s silky floral new collection + Miss Bush’s chapel + flowers by Bloomingayles = so, so much pretty.

The chapel was dressed for the occasion with amazing floral displays everywhere. I loved the mix of lilacs, magnolia and violets together with copper and eucalyptus. It was my first visit to Miss Bush Bridal but I’ve never seen a bridal shop as beautiful. I stroked, literally stroked all the dresses – Jenny Packham in particular <3 <3 <3.

But the real star of the show of course was Violet and Wren – Violet and Wren is the brainchild of co-founders Helen Pollington and Louise Barnard, who are both so lovely. They wanted to create a British loungewear brand with beautiful, crafted investment pieces and believe that a thing of beauty can transcend seasons to become a most loved addition to your wardrobe. All the pieces are classic but with a modern, almost sportswear luxe twist. Everything is designed and made in England. The silk felt heavenly and would be perfect for getting ready on your wedding day instead of your traditional white fluffy gown that will make you have a hot flush {not what you want as you’re having your hair and make up done} and would equally transition seamlessly into your honeymoon. The pieces would make fab gifts for your bridesmaids too. I defy anybody not to get smitten over this collection.

I fell in love with the hand painted botanical prints, they’re so feminine. There’s a delicate magnolia glow which was my personal favourite, a fresh and exotic ‘Glasshouse Palm’, a dark and romantic ‘Lacquered rose’ complimented with a violet haze.

There’s a mix of luxury kimonos, slips, pyjama pants and separates in the collection. The shorts and knickers are flattering whilst being girly and a bit sporty at the same time. I like that you can mix and match the separates.

Which is your favourite design? The magnolia pattern is perfect for Spring.

The floral designs have all been hand painted and digitally rendered to create a unique print.

The prettiest of collections needed the prettiest of treats to accompany it, cue Kalm Kitchen whose white chocolate bark and violet cookies tasted even better than they looked.

We felt like we were in the Amazon or something with exotic blooms to introduce the botanics.
