There’s space in every wardrobe, no matter how simple, for some bold colour. Based in Rio de Janeiro, Farm Rio is all about bright colours, beautiful prints and elegant silhouettes. A go-to brand for true statement dresses that demand attention.
Verging on cult status, Dôen has become one of the most sought-after brands over the last few years. Its dresses are whimsy and romantic, using details such as ruching and delicate frills to create ultra-feminine pieces that transcend trends. Any of their styles are a worthy investment and will be worn for years to come.
If you’re looking for beautifully cut, timeless summer dresses with a dreamy edge, Matteau is the brand for you. Founded by sisters Ilona Hamer and Peta Heinsen in their native Australia, its minimalist designs mean every piece can be dressed up or down with ease.
A Piece Apart
A forever wardrobe is all about pieces that can be mixed and matched, maximising their wearability. That’s exactly the ethos behind New York-based Apiece Apart, which designs easy dresses that can take you anywhere and everywhere.
Faithfull The Brand
Founded in Indonesia in 2014, Faithfull the Brand has become a go-to for bohemian-tinged pieces that draw inspiration from the spirit of travel and the label’s heritage. Each piece is hand-dyed, printed and made by local artisans, meaning the quality is exceptional. Highlights include a recent collaboration with stylist and influencer Monikh.
If relaxed summer staples are your style, Posse is definitely one for you. It specialises in linen pieces with an easy-breezy aesthetic, each designed in Sydney, Australia, and handmade in limited quantities in India. Dresses are simple and flattering in colours that will slip seamlessly into any wardrobe.
