THE HUNGARIAN COLLECTION

We are delighted to announce the arrival of our Hungarian Collection

 
Hungarian Close Up-04.jpg
 

We have had the great joy of using vintage Hungarian fabrics for our latest Eponine collection. The collection is made entirely from hand embroidered cushion covers, tablecloths and wall hangings that mothers and daughters would have worked on together for a wedding trousseau.

We have also used old linen chemises, carefully deconstructed and re-cut in our studio. These heirlooms were sourced in antique shops, flea markets and specialist dealers during two visits to Hungary this summer.

WE HOPE YOU LOVE THIS COLLECTION AS MUCH AS WE LOVED MAKING IT

TO-DO LIST > CHIHULY NIGHTS

We are oh so excited to go and see the, frankly, spellbinding work by glass artist Dale Chihuly

The exhibition will be taking place under the night sky in Kew Gardens

Music has been commissioned by Guest Artists, and is based on a composition by composer Nico Muhly, featuring instruments and vocals to reflect Chihuly’s use of glass and breath. The soundscape will change each evening and will include a rotating line up of musicians, including the UK's only glass harmonica player Alasdair Malloy.

FOR THE LOVE OF THE COAT

the season of the coat is (almost) upon us!

Of course we’re sad the summer is coming to a close, but as perpetual coat lovers we are also awaiting coat season with much enthusiasm. It is in this spirit that we have selected some of our favourite Eponine designs - old and new - which we’ll be dusting off to waltz into coat season with a bang.

TO-DO LIST > "THE SOUVENIR"

We have officially heard too many wonderful things about Joanna Hogg’s new film The Souvenir to resist seeing it any longer

A shy film student begins finding her voice as an artist while navigating a turbulent courtship with a charismatic but untrustworthy man. She defies her protective mother and concerned friends as she slips deeper and deeper into an intense, emotionally fraught relationship which comes dangerously close to destroying her dreams.

THREE CHEERS TO AUTUMN

Orange and red overtaking the green, summer-abandoned fireplaces taking centre stage, the cup-of-tea-per-day count on the up; this can only mean one thing . . .

Autumn is back

and we couldn’t be more ready for it

EPONINE MEETS > ISABEL SPEARMAN

we caught up with Isabel Spearman (or, as we like to call her, the queen of the dress) - FOUNDER OF @DAILYDRESSEDIT AND BRAND AND IMAGE CONSULTANT

Isabel told us about smart works, the charity for which she is an ambassador, the power of the print dress, and why you should never save an outfit for a special occasion

You are, as reflected in your instagram account @dailydressedit (and subsequent pop-up on Motcomb Street), an almighty fan of the dress. What it is about the dress which you particularly like?

For me a dress is my uniform, I know I feel my very best wearing one. I also love that its only one item of clothing to think about rather than pairing separates, lazy dressing at its best.

Talking of dresses, you have an Eponine Columbia Road dress. How have you been putting it together in these one-minute-rainy-one-minute-sunny summer months?

This summer I haven’t sadly haven’t the chance to wear many of my beautiful summery dresses sadly. However, my Colombia road dress has been a wardrobe constant as although it is incredibly colourful it has an easy dark base you can pair with anything from a pair of black Birkenstocks to tan espadrilles. What I’m really looking forward to is wearing it with black boots in the cooler months, this dress transcends any season.

What is your biggest fashion “Do" and biggest fashion “Do Not"?

I really believe that you have to wear what makes you feel your best. I can see from the many women I work with throughout a wide variety of industries, that wearing a print dress is now much more accepted, even in the corporate world. If it is a print midi dress that makes you leave the house ready to tackle the world every morning, then wear one and enjoy it. Smarten it up with a blazer if needed, or just dress it down with a pair of trainers, don’t save your best for special occasions or you will never wear them. It all goes back to confidence and if you are wearing something you feel great in, you exude confidence.

Please could you tell the reader a little more about smart works?

Smart Works is a charity I am really proud to be an Ambassador for. They help vulnerable women get back into the work place through dressing and mentoring sessions. Its all about giving them confidence in themselves and they leave their sessions for the job interview feeling like Beyonce. It is an incredibly simple and powerful concept that uses fashion as a force for good.

What do you most like to do when you’re doing none of the above?

I spend a lot of time thinking and dreaming about dresses which is why I set up my @dailydressedit instagram account. My feed is very much to inspire other dress obsessives, not to shop because we actually don’t need that much in our wardrobes, but its a feast for the eye if you love a dress as much as I do. We did a very successful Pop Up in May which Eponine was part of and watch this space for another one in 2020. You heard it here first!
