‘Botanical Escape’ is a sleepwear collection inspired by a trip to the Italian island ‘Isola Bella’ and the Palace of Borromeo. A sense of wonder and dreaming is evoked through an abundance of exotic plants, imagined animals and a dream-like colour palette.

The story of the land and the idea of specially crafting a dream island and personal escape inspired the creation of a collection that could transport you to another place. A sense of joy and painterly retreat are evoked through suggestions of Italian orangeries, botanical gardens and roaming peacocks.

Following a love of developing designs through painting and sketchbooking, the collection intends to reflect a hand-painted feel. A balance of elements of realism and play ignite the imagination to create a form of botanical escape.
