'Bonne' Is The New Fashion Brand From Textiles Queen Bonnie Ashley!

15th November, 2021

Bonne is a luxury resortwear label with fabrics and patterns hand painted by the founder of Bonnie and Neil.

Bonnie and Neil bring their distinctive colourful, patterned flair to every piece they produce. And with their homewares collections going from strength to strength, the textile darlings are adding a whole new brand to the Bonnie and Neil world: fashion.

Over the years founder Bonnie Ashley has been asked many times ‘where did you get your dress from?’ but often these pieces were ones Bonnie had designed herself, made by a tailor. After two years of development, Bonnie has recently launched her answer to this question.

Say hello to Bonne, the designers’ new apparel brand!

Inspired by by vintage florals and traditional English gardens, Bonne’s debut collection features handcrafted dresses made from 100% linen. The romantic prints contain floral motifs handpainted by Bonnie herself, while the silhouettes are voluminous and feminine.

Perfect vibes for the festive season ahead!

Shop the collection here.
