“Take pains; be perfect” - William Shakespeare.
This month we are launching a brand new, luxurious SS19 collection inspired by one of Shakespeare’s most enchanting plays, A Midsummer Night’s Dream. Combining the twin aspects of the play; the dream world and comedy, this collection is both theatrical and playful. Each and every piece in this collection has been handmade in England using the highest quality silk fabrics, including silk organza and dupion with metallic threads to give a magical sheen with official Swarovski elements crystals.
Made from pastel colours with silk with their large, flowing skirts and beautiful bodices adorned with individual hand-applied Swarovski crystals, the dresses in this collection are classically Furdrobe. Both dresses are reversible so their characters can change during their personal journey in the play.
The Queen Titania Ball Gown
With it’s heavily encrusted crystal bodice leading down to light flouncy skirts with a dainty French hand rolled lettuce hem, this show-stopping, statement piece befits Queen Titania, the Queen of the Fairies. Created from coral coloured metallic silk organza and the bodice from silk dupion and adorned with Swarovski elements crystals and butterfly and dragonfly designs. This dress would shimmer perfectly under the lights of any red carpet event, or under the mystical orb lights of the Fairy Queen.
The Duchess Wedding Gown
This dress has been created from the same James Hare dazzling white silk satin as our famous Peacock Ball Gown. This unique wedding dress for dogs has dozens of individually hand-applied Swarovski crystals in a butterfly design in different colour crystals from our pallet . Then hem is completed with a white maribou feather trim and 13 handmade silk peach and white roses around the hem. A beautiful, sparkling gown for when your dog says ‘I do’.
The King Oberon Bow Tie
Sparkly and luxurious, the King Oberon Bow Tie has been handmade with metallic silk dupion with silver thread and totally bejewelled with official Swarovski elements crystals. It’s the perfect statement bow tie for any dog who wants to add a bit of bling but doesn’t feel comfortable with a full on outfit. Alternatively it goes perfectly with our metallic blue Demetrius jacket.
SS19 Bow Ties
This season, our standard bow ties come in 5 sizes and are reversible so your dog can get two very different looks. With a scattering of crystal on one side and the other side being plain silk, your dogs can select whether they want to sparkle in the evening or enjoy the quiet, understated glamour of the plain silk. The central point of the bow ties twist to whatever side you decide to have on show, so there will always be a sparkly emerald cut sparkle in the centre.
The three magical jackets in this collection are sleeveless - perfect for the warmer summer months. Aptly naked after the three male main characters Puck, Demetrius and Lysander. Created from the finest silks in beautiful blues and greens, these jackets shimmer and shine with their exquisite hand applied Swarovski crystal designs with butterflies, flying beetles and dragonflies - all the kind of creatures you would find stretching their wings and flying about in a magical forest.
The Furdrobe SS19 Instagram Play
Of course, no version of this play would be complete without some mischievous and whimsical characters.
