Langholm designers showcase latest collection

Rose’s Wardrobe Vintage launch their first summer collection


THINK summer, think hot, think hot colours.

C’est si bon is the very first summer collection by Rose’s Wardrobe Vintage of Langholm.

This 1950s’ song, sung by Eartha Kitt, which translates to It’s so good, is the inspiration for this exclusive collection, along with accessories, by the Langholm-based company.

The designs and colours hark back to the decade of optimism when the country was emerging from war and women wanted bright, fresh colours.

The collection has been put together by Emma and Leanne Duncan, whose business is based in Drove Weavers.

Emma said: “Part of this collection was supposed to be released last April but we put it to one side to sew scrubs. So it’s our first summer collection.

“One of the song’s verses just brought me hope about the summer and meeting family and friends again. 

“It’s so good,

Just wandering around,

Arm in arm, arm in arm,

And Singing songs.”

“My Nanna is always singing and I can’t wait to see her again soon.

“The colour palette came from the tile fabric we have used in the collection and the fact my great-grandmother and Nanna travelled a lot, with my great-grandad being in the Army, so reflected the hot climate colours.

“The black and white photo shows my great-grandmother Edna, my Nanna’s mum. She is a great inspiration, one of our brand’s muses.”

Emma added: “The pieces reimagine some of our best-selling styles.

“The three-piece set is the Lily blouse, the shorts are Pat and the skirt is Edina. The square necked Eda dress is inspired by Edna.

“The Josie dress is a new dress combining the Jean blouse and best-selling Rosie skirt.

“Matching accessories are available in all the fabrics and there is a jewellery range by Bow & Crossbone.”

The launch day coincided with Leanne’s birthday and with fashion revolution week.

It was set up after the Rana Plaza factory collapse in Dhaka, Bangladesh in 2013.

Emma said: “We are using sustainable fabrics, like hemp, organic cotton and Tencel, a fabric processed from wood and environmentally sustainable, along with some limited edition 1950s fabrics.”
