Those amazing sleeves! This Wynken dress has a relaxed and roomy shape, but the frill sleeves give it a pretty edge. The print is inspired by the pattern on butterfly wings, which gives it an abstract, animal print effect. The dress has a high neckline, small stand collar, button detail and low armholes, while the gathered waist gives it extra volume. It's a super dress for layering – try it over a long-sleeved top and leggings – making it an excellent transeasonal buy.
London brand Wynken creates modern unisex children's clothing with a sense of freedom and comfort of movement from volume shapes and soft fabrics. Elbe Lealman founded Wynken in 2014 after becoming a mother and brings her many years of experience as head designer at Folk menswear to form a strong yet playful design ethos with print, embroidery and appliqué.
The AW19 'Butterfly House' collection is inspired by the 1997 album Butterfly by Herbie Hancock and Kimiko Kasai, and mixes 90 streetwear (faux-fur tracksuits and beanie hats) with more delicate pieces (butterfly and flower print dresses and sweatshirts) for a modern feel. There are super faux-fur coats and hats, plus jackets and trousers in soft jumbo cord.
