This season at Beulah we have been inspired by the concept of the ‘chrysalis’. This is the metamorphosis of the butterfly, from pupa to chrysalis to winged beauty. It represents the transformation of the trafficked women helped by the Beulah Trust. The collection is about the journey from darkness into light. Each print has been hand painted in-house from these initial beautiful watercolour inspiration sketches to reveal the intricate detail of the butterflies’ wing.

The colour palette is autumnal with deep evergreens, renaissance reds and inky blues.  Ice blues and shimmering oyster soften these bold tones.

With a focus on separates, delicate patterns combined with contrast paneling and pleats create flattering, modern silhouettes.

The collection in itself is also a metamorphosis, the mood boards inspired the patterned sketches that are translated into fashion.

The Serena dress is in the Fluttering Wings print in ink blue.  It is a fusion of modern elegance with Italian inspired style details crafted from swathes of weightless silk-chiffon with feminine detailing to accentuate the sensuous movement of the fabric.

The Evie top is in Inflorescent Wings Heron Print, light and loose fitting silk tee is a wardrobe classic perfect for layering.  It is paired with our Evelyn cigarette trousers in navy that embody Beulah’s sleekly tailored aesthetic.

The Ivy is a stunning full length printed silk chiffon skirt designed with two front splits to emphasise the fluid silhouette.  The full skirt paired with a narrow waistband is glamorous when you move as the detail of the Fluttering Wings print is revealed.  It is paired with the sheer Martha blouse in the same print for an evening ensemble.
