YOLKE’s irresistible new daywear and table linen line-up calls to mind sun-washed spring days with a supremely pretty all-over tulip print
Nothing says spring quite like a whopping great bunch of blowsy tulips; all delicately ruffled cups and elegant, leggy stems, they deliver the most joyous burst of colour, come rain or shine. Given the glee-sparking power of these subtly showy blooms - not to mention their propensity to conjure scenes of rambling country gardens and sun-dappled picnics on verdant lawns - we could think of no better muse for YOLKE’s brand new seasonal line-up. Adorned with a bespoke painterly print that’s been designed right here in London, our outrageously pretty Tulip Collection - featuring an ankle-grazing cotton poplin dress, a ruffle-trimmed collar and a charming made-to-match tableware set - is every bit as lovely as spring itself.
Whether you’re entertaining al fresco or perusing the just-picked produce at your local farmers’ market, blue-skied spring days call for romantic silhouettes in airy fabrics, and nothing fits the bill quite like our puff-sleeved Tulip Beatrice Dress. Nipped in at the waist and finished with a riot of ruffles, it’s the perfect accompaniment to sun-kissed skin. Slip it on with braided leather sandals and a smattering of gold jewellery, or style it with nothing but a flower in your hair for barefoot frolics in the garden. When it comes to lending a playful jolt to well-loved wardrobe staples, our bloom-dotted Tulip Collar - with its delightful colour-pop trim - couldn’t be more ideal. Effortlessly elevating prairie blouses, sundresses and fine cashmere sweaters in an instant, its whimsical versatility knows no bounds.
Set the Scene
There’s something oh-so cheering about creating a fanciful tablescape; be it the act - or ritual, even - of piecing together something beautiful, the thought of the memorable events set to unfold, or a heady combination of the two. However extravagant (or utterly relaxed) the occasion, a fetching tablecloth sets the mood, and our tulip-adorned iteration - with its pretty scalloped edging in candy apple red - provides a superb starting point for any spring scene. Go all-out with artfully illustrated menu cards, hand-blown Murano tumblers and vases spilling over with foliage - not forgetting our matching linen napkins for the ultimate pattern-pairing moment. Then for impromptu picnics, choose an array of mismatched crockery and a suitably edenic, meadowy backdrop to keep the feel of it somewhat carefree, without compromising on covetability.
