Behold; a collection like no other! This October, we’ve joined forces with Nick, Lily and Edie Ashley to create a collaboration that combines classic luxury with quirky, fashion-forward design. Discover a collection filled with Edwardian drama and statement pops of colour that bring to life the style and vision of the Ashleys whilst also beautifully paying homage to their mother and grandmother, the iconic Laura Ashley.

Nick is a menswear designer, artist and previously the Creative Director at his parents’ company, Laura Ashley, named after his mother. Nick is also a Brora fan, often stealing his wife’s jumpers and loves championing British design and manufacturing. He has been joined by his daughters, Lily, a poet, scriptwriter, musician and performance artist, and Edie, a fashion designer and artist who works for Vivienne Westwood.

We were very excited about collaborating with the talented Ashleys to launch this thirty-piece collection, which draws on all of their creative talents and individual personalities while seamlessly blending the boundaries between the classic and contemporary.

Laura Ashley believed that you should be able to carry your entire wardrobe on your back and opted for a pared-down clothing collection. We aimed to reflect that in this range filled with fashionable yet timeless pieces designed for wearing time and time again from only the finest materials.

Elements of Edie’s androgyny and bold personal style have been intermingled amongst highly feminine, heritage-inspired designs with charming necklines and delicate lace trim details. Our needlecord dresses, skirts and silk scarves have also been adorned with an exclusive pattern (which is, in fact, a poetic scribble) drawn by Lily that contrasts bursts of rose and jade against deep aubergine and midnight hues.
