More of Us
With everything that’s happening and so many of us working from home or looking after little ones, finding joy in our home rituals is arguably more important than ever. We’ve tried to do our bit to help and put together a selection of basic essentials you can add to your home uniform – from soft tees and knits to our trusty leggings – hoping they make your day-to-day that little bit lovelier.
From handkerchief hems to on-trend animal prints, our dresses and jumpsuits are full of beautiful details. Look out for our versatile slip and jumper dresses this season, opting for a relaxed jumpsuit to embrace the utilitarian trend
Our kidswear collection for girls aged 3-12 is underpinned by the same easy aesthetic as our main range. Mintie fabrics are easy to care for and soft to touch, and each piece can be easily mixed and matched.
