Here at HLN, we’ve had Saint Belle on our radar for some time now. Since we caught up with the brand’s creator, Isabella Dryden, back in February, we’ve been chomping at the bit to get our hands on some of the gorgeously feminine, entirely hand-woven garments that have been flirting with us on Insta. But we’ve had to be patient.

But for no longer! Saint Belle has just launched this week and we are so beyond delighted to be able to showcase some of our top picks for their first collection. Focused around natural textiles and soft tonal palettes, capsule wearability and nostalgic designs, we have a sneaky suspicion these pieces are soon to become our fallback outfits of choice for every occasion in the foreseeable future.

ADELIA – BOW SUN DRESS

Introducing the Adelia Dress, tailored in our 100% cotton handwoven Crayon Stripe. Adelia’s easy, ultra-feminine silhouette will make her your go-to favourite. Designed for those easy summer days. Featuring adjustable bows at the shoulder, beautiful, natural shell buttons that fasten down the back and ending at a panel that hits mid-length. The hem frill steps down towards the back of the dress, a detail that frames silhouette beautifully.

  • Handwoven Fabric
  • 100% Cotton of which 30% is from a recycled source
  • Gentle Machine Wash 30
  • 100% natural and ecological
  • That perfect midi length
  • Yes, you can still wear your bra

ISABELLA – WRAP MINI DRESS

Taking a cue from vintage patterns, our take on the wrap dress is study of softness and structure. Pretty details – a flutter sleeve ending above the elbow and cascading frills at the hem for an elegant twirl. With cool nostalgia, the Isabella dress wraps at the waist and can be cinched with a matching belt tie. This sweet and stylish dress will have you twirling under the stars.
