Barker and Pattichis cruise dresses and occasion dresses join us for 2017. We are so excited when we find a label that offers something new in occasion wear. Barker and Pattichis does just that. Available in sizes 10 to 22 and up to size 26 by special order.
We love the easy-to wear shaping of these panelled dresses with matching jackets. Made of Italian print mesh and soft to the touch jersey, they are light and lovely. They also pack into the tiniest of suitcases without creasing. Wash, hang and they do not even need ironing. Can you get more easy care and easy wear than that?
The clever panelling in these dresses mean they fall beautifully from the hips. The result is an extremely flattering shape whatever size you are. Longer in length, they also provide more leg cover. The neat, little jackets formalise the look and also cover your arms without being restrictive or heavy. They can be worn tied at the front or just left to fall elegantly. The style is simple. The impact comes from the dramatic prints that the dresses and jackets come in.
Bonfire colours of hot oranges and reds or ocean blues of fresh aqua feature at one end of the colour spectrum. At the other is a vintage-styling print in quiet colours of cream and dusky pinks for a more romantic look.
These dresses and their matching jackets look great on their own. They can also be taken up a gear to look more formal for weddings and race days by simply adding a hat or headpiece. We have a fabulous choice of millinery to team with these dresses. They look great with a small feather fascinator for a stylish touch or a huge hat for a more statement look.
