Mr Harold Morris then conceived the name Gloverall.

NOCTURNE

Nocturne was launched in 2004 by Claudine Bertinotti-Lenoble, a French entrepreneur with a distinguished fashion heritage. Her vision was to create beautiful clothing that focused on feminine pieces made of luxurious silks and fabrics.

Each piece is carefully created to showcase exquisite design, colour and excellent craftsmanship- from delicate beading to languorously flowing silks. nocturne has quickly blossomed into a covetable, international brand, selling across three continents.

The London based design team blends modern cuts, innovative prints and delicate embellishment with a hint of vintage glamour in order to create a distinctly cosmopolitan collection of clothing.

The brilliance of this collection is that each piece is so versatile – perfect to switch from day to night with just a pair of killer heels and a hot red lip added, you can transform from simple chic to glamour puss. Perfect for any city girl who has to get ready on the run. You don’t even need to pile on the accessories to make these dresses a statement, they do that all on their own. As the brand say themselves:nocturne is a brand that is created with the modern day fashionista in mind; a woman who desires maximum impact at minimum effort”

WORTH ITS WEIGHT IN GOLD

This Autumn, Boudoir Boutique is honoured to welcome the Barbour Gold Collection, a new luxurious and exclusive extension to the Barbour family and designed by iconic Brit designer Alice Temperley.

Revered for her touch of timelessness, Temperley has created a mixture of chunky knitwear and fabulous jackets in shades of oatmeal, greys, browns and black that will appeal to women of all ages and styles and last from season to season. Original Barbour features such as the ringpull zip and quilt detail are present, but there is something about this collection that feels, well…special.

All of the pieces in this collection are named after locations around Britain such as the Somerset jacket and Cambridge cardigan (pictured above) as well as Dorset, Cornwall, Wiltshire and Oxford, ensuring that the collection, like the designer, is British through and through.

Perfect for the cold British winter.
