‘She loves full and true, as a fighting bequest
She was given her earth by a sea come to rest
And the children she bore loved this truly too much
Calloused pride come to die in our hands as we touch
And so soften me now, let me take as it's given
For the wind's started up and the lady is risen’
The Lady is Risen by Johnny Flynn & The Sussex Wit
The latest additions to the Spring/Summer 2020 collection are a series of dresses and smock tops in lightweight, sheer fabrics; The Lady is Risen.These dresses have been in the making for some time now. Summer can be difficult for those of us not keen to bear all in the heat; we favour full, flowy dresses instead. Inspired by the natural, woven fibres they’re made in and opting for a more is more approach these styles feature full hems with simple bodices; evocative of smocks from the past.
