For Summer 23, we have blended elements from our summer inspirations with a freewheeling, Bohemian spirit. The designs reference pioneering photographers Lee Miller, Ilse Bing and Madame D’Ora, who brought new perspectives to bear on work that chronicled a fast-changing world.
Layered dress suits in hammered satin feature bold, hand-painted prints combining vintage maps and flowers. Shell prints, in particular the Cowrie – thought to bring good luck and historically traded as a form of currency – are also important. In chic summer separates perfect for layering, the Cowrie story is among Alice’s favourite groups in the collection.
Safari-style summer suiting in a soft-woven dogtooth check and boldly striped knitted suits revive hits from past collections. Reimagined sequins, soft fille coupés and a mixture of beautiful textiles create a collection we couldn’t be more proud of. The colour palette amplifies the mood, with serene blues, punchy saffron, elegant monochromes and energising bold contrasts in the prints and knits. In total, it’s celebratory and wearable – and what every woman will want this summer.
