An Apolina signature piece, the ‘Penelope’ dress features a naive folk inspired embroidery and is finished with an intricate, contrast cream hand crochet trim at the neckline and cuffs. The honey toned embroidery brings warmth to the delicate pink base cloth, giving a vintage look. Cut from a fine cotton voile, this piece drapes beautifully and is light and soft to wear. The ‘Penelope’ is intended to be worn short, and comes with a matching short to extend wear time and provide extra modesty. Invisible zip fastening at centre back.

100% Cotton voile

Size Notes

Apolina’s latest Autumn collection was inspired by annual visits to Sweden; exploring “Skansen” and “Nordiska,” museums which transport the visitor back to the Sweden of yesteryear. Memories of our original launch on the final day of a stay in an idyllic cabin in the Swedish countryside, led to our latest collection. The warm, natural, earthy tones that surrounded us provided the basis for this latest colour palette.
This Autumn collection is steeped in nostalgia, family and comfort. It celebrates saying goodbye to those last summer days and moving towards the calmer, slower pace of early Autumn days.
As always, the collection is rooted in the idea of modern craft, this Autumn ’19 collection once again draws on this love-affair with hand techniques, showcasing new designs, new embroideries and intricate smocking.
