Spotlight On – Eco Friendly Tencel

In recent years the fashion industry has seen a rise in the use of the fabric tencel or lyocell. 

What is tencel? It’s a sustainable fabric generated from regenerated wood cellulose and is one of the most environmentally friendly currently on the market which is good news!

Edward Hertzman, publisher of Sourcing Journal points out that: “Tencel does use less land and water than cotton production,” As well as this, it’s also fully biodegradable.

So what else does tencel offer other than its eco-friendly properties? 

The nature of the fabric creates a flattering drape and is soft, luxurious, breathable, and naturally wrinkle-resistant. With 50% more moisture absorbency than cotton, it’s no wonder more and more sports luxe and holiday attire is fashioned from tencel.

Our wide leg shorts are the perfect thing to take on your summer holiday or winter sun adventure and keep you cool and dry in the heat. 

Dash Tencel Tie Shorts

Our Printed Tencel Jumpsuit is one of our hotly anticipated pieces to launch this season since our SS17 press show. We are proud to introduce Dash’s first ever jumpsuit in this fabulous fabric. The beautiful ‘glass house print’ was hand-designed in our London studio by our talented prints designers.

We spoke to Gillian Peebles, Dash brand director about the design:

“Inspired by the global trend for more green areas in cityscapes, we used the shape and form of terrariums combined with impressionist painting techniques to create a modern feel to our glass house prints.”

Editor’s Pick: Precis Petite Enid Dress

 

 

The question on the top of everyone’s lips at the moment is what to wear to all the occasions we’ve pencilled in our diaries?! With wedding season fast approaching and talk of Ascot and other race-days becoming more predominant, all we’re left with is the nagging feeling of finding something to wear.

If you want our advice, we would suggest finding something versatile, statement and a style that can be easily dressed up or down…

 

 

This week our Editor has chosen the Precis Petite Enid dress for this very situation. Carefully crafted from a textured jacquard fabric, this dress is cut in a soft prom shape and features a beautiful floral print perfect for the season. There is also a skinny belt designed to cinch in the waist for extra shape, so not only will you look super feminine, you’ll be accentuating your figure too!

Modelled by the gorgeous Caroline from blog The Belle Abroad, this dress can be worn with a cropped cardigan and heels for a garden party or with a structured jacket and strappy sandals for a wedding, you can even wear this dress with ballet pumps for a more dressed down summer look.

Editor’s Pick – Eastex Peony Print

Bold prints are going to be BIG this summer, and our beautiful hand-painted peony print will revitalise your new season wardrobe, adding fresh colour and style.

Eastex hand painted peony print

The Eastex design team took inspiration from the SS17 catwalks which were awash with fabulous florals, with Miu Miu and Kenzo leading the way. Designed and hand painted in our London studio, the graceful and colourful peony was worked into the beautiful painterly floral design.

A Very Hygge Valentine’s Day

Tired of sharing your Valentine’s Day with hundreds of other couples at a restaurant surrounded by tacky heart balloons, or perhaps the whole V-Day thing simply fills you with dread…

Well this year we’re breaking out from the mould and planning a cosy, relaxing night in with subtle romantic touches and a nod to the ‘hygge’ phenomenon that has taken the UK by storm. Forget staring at expensive menus in crowded restaurants, instead enjoy a hygge Valentine’s night in with your loved one, the girls, your mum, your pet… whoever you like!

Here are our ideas for a Very

Hygge Valentine’s Day

Light the candles, burn the essential oil, fluff up the pillows, put your favourite chunky knit socks on and relax with ‘Dine in for 2 for £10!’ If you haven’t trialled the incredible dine in for two deal supermarket’s offer at this time of year, you are totally missing a trick – not only is it a super money saver, they are very tasty and require little preparation, so there’s more time to enjoy the company you’re in and the ambient surroundings you’ve created.

While others are braving the freezing February weather in restaurant queues, why not take advantage of a precious night in with your loved one or friends and watch and entire series on Netflix, or a film you’ve been meaning to watch for ages. Or cuddle up and read that book you’ve been meaning to make more time for.

Lucky enough to have a fireplace? Light it up, spread a picnic rug or cosy blanket down on the floor in front of it, and lay with delicious charcuterie, artisan cheese and other nibbly bits – now just add a drop of your favourite wine for your perfect hygge Valentine’s Night In.
