MELABELLE AW12 : THE THORA COLLECTION
We are delighted to announce the arrival of our autumn winter collection. This collection is a personal tribute to Bella’s grandmother, Thora, and features garments inspired by vintage shapes that keep the Melabelle ethos very much in mind – to create a versatile wardrobe of flattering, beautifully made and original clothes.
Thora’s impressive wardrobe influenced many items in the collection, such as the ‘Eve dress’; the nostalgic, feminine shapes flatter all body types and can be dressed up or down. Garments like the ‘pea coat’, form a more masculine overlay that compliment the feminine dresses but work brilliantly with jeans and tunics too.
This season’s bespoke signature prints feature stars, a ‘jag’ print and ‘dalton’ dancer print, which was inspired by a mysterious envelope dated 1955, packed full of charming silhouettes that had been sent to Thora by her sister.
