Venetian Lady Collection
“Every hour of the day is a miracle of light“
A story of comfy loungewear inspired by visits to Venice with my family. The lifestyle of Peggy Guggenheim who had the most amazing dreamy Venetian palazzo and private art gallery in Venice called the Palazzo Venier dei Leoni on the Grand Canal.
Ladylike dresses in embroidered tulles, jade crepe de chine, fish scale laces, diamanté slips & pyjamas in stretch silk satin. Set the scene for a decadent but playful relaxed look. Dresses are named after Peggy’s dogs. A palate of frosted mint greens, nude and sugared, dusty pinks. Sweet confections with puff sleeves and feathered cuffs and hemlines teamed with fluffy cardies dreamed up to sip Bellinis at Cipriani.
“Venetian sunsets on the water are enough to melt your heart“
