Brand focus: The D'Ascoli Collection

Driven by insatiable curiosity, New York textile designer, Peter D’Ascoli, works with and produces the most beautiful hand-crafted fabrics.

In 2006, D’Ascoli founded the Talianna Studio in New Delhi, creating luxury fabrics for interiors. And in 2012, Peter's Parisienne wife, Cécile, launched a clothing side line. The D'Ascoli Collection was born and quickly gained global praise and admiration. 

The couple's ethos around sustainability and social responsibility is evident in how they work. Collaborating with local cotton and silk producers in India, the D’Ascoli collection uses ancient techniques, such as hand block printing where a pattern is applied to the fabric using a carved wooden block. Hand-block printing creates subtle imperfections and irregularities in the finished article that adds beautiful depth and character to the print and makes each piece unique.  

This combined with modern techniques - such as weaving, digital printing, and hand embroidery - creates a bohemian aesthetic that is both contemporary and timeless. 

Produced in small, limited batches, each seasonal collection has an exclusive feel.  

We are proud to be one of the UK stockists for the D’Ascoli Collection. Each season their richly patterned dresses, kaftans and tops grace our resort wear collection. As for how to wear each piece... simply pair with some statement earrings, sandals and a smile!
