Back in December I was invited to afternoon tea and a preview of the new collection by Hansine at the Dover Street Townhouse in Soho. Dresses and cake what more could I possibly want?!!… I guess it did actually feel quite odd looking at resort wear when it was freezing outside but as you know I am a summer girl at heart and resortwear is my absolute favourite thing. I’m not sure why but I always seem to have so many more summer clothes and love to invest in key pieces that I bring out every holiday. As half term is coming up (far too quickly for my liking) I thought it was a good time to let you know about this fabulous brand….
Hansine is the creation of Hansine Johnston. She is a stunning and really lovely lady who has an interesting story to tell and a real passion for her collection. Now based in Switzerland Hansine was born into a family with Greek, Danish and Irish roots. Her multicultural childhood and adventurous nature led her to many far flung places and exotic beaches. It was this and her passion for the stylish and original that led to a career within some of the industries leading brands. Over time she has created her own unique look, mixing textures and patterns together to create a modern bohemian look that she has now put into launching her collection of resortwear.
Each piece has been designed to flatter, feel comfortable and luxurious. There are vintage and artistic influences with unique prints and sun bleached colours. I chose the Feather print dress in peach. With a low back and silver thread edging this dress feels luxurious and instantly flattering. A real holiday staple. During the daytime over a bikini and perfect for 5pm cocktails by the pool! Also perfect for the relaxed boho Ibiza vibe! This will be coming with me to Marrakesh in March along with possibly some cashmere for the cooler evenings…
Fabrics are high quality and there is a real deep rooted belief in the importance of sustainable and ethical fashion. Another one of my favourites is the Greek draped jersey kaftan style dress. Made from Italian jersey the front ruched detail and winged sleeves are one of my favourite silhoeuttes
Also in the collection are a Cropped Mohair cardigan available in four colours as well as a cashmere selection. All designed to work beautifully together with the maxi dresses and provide a versatile summer wardrobe
It was such a treat to meet Hansine and discover her brand. Her full collection can be found on her beautiful website as well as information on various pop up shop events and previews. Ibiza and Mykonos were highly successful last year, so look out if you are planning to visit either destination this summer!
