With the UK weather taking a turn for the worst in the last few days (snow, in April, really?!) my mind has been, inadvertently wandering shall we say, to blue sky’s and sandy beaches. Wedding planning is the perfect excuse for browsing the travel section for honeymoon ideas and dreaming of being able to wear sultry slip dresses sipping wine over Italian vistas or bohemian (yes ‘boho’ is back, just don’t call it that) beach coverups drinking cocktails by the infinity pool in Bali. But, In addition to the views and the drinks you need the perfect honeymoon wardrobe to match!
I recently showed a collection of big day suitable dresses for mums. One of them was from Swedish fashion house Dagmar. As a brand I had never heard of, (their green, floor length silk dress was one of my favourites from the post) I did a bit of research and had a look at the collections from the last few years. I discovered they have recently launched a 10 year anniversary collection with some perfect options for your honeymoon capsule wardrobe!
House of Dagmar is a Swedish fashion house founded by three sisters. Dagmar’s design is characterised by its intellectual, sexy and contemporary style. (It actually reminds me a little of eponymous British label Nicole Farhi.) Many of the garments are hand-knitted or have added hand-made details. And I love that the principal source of inspiration – and muse – is the sisters’ late grandmother by the name Dagmar.
The Anniversary Collection “Ten Dresses” has just launched showcasing 10 of the favourite and most significant spring dresses from the last 10 years, updated and reworked for a 2015 look. It also features some examples of perfect honeymoon capsule wardrobe attire, taking you from beach, to city exploring to dinner and drinks. Check out the collection below, I know I will be…Bring on the holidays!
