Beatrice Needlecord

From the C&R Archive, we reintroduce the Beatrice print for the AW23 collection.

Specially selected for the AW23 collection by C&R designer, Violet Dent, the Beatrice Needlecord is a dainty delight of floral sprigs printed onto softest cosiest cream needlecord.


In October 2022, the design team (Violet & Kate) began to piece together the AW23 'Of The Earth' collection.

Beatrice was re-developed and perfectly hued to sit amongst the Autumnal earthy tones of Reds, Creams, Browns and Pinks.

 The Beatrice floral motif scattered prettily across cosy needle cord, it is perfectly painterly in its sensibility.

And a divine detail - Rose-hued velvet ribbons. 

Hanging beautifully, the cord lending structure and weight to an otherwise soft and free-flowing silhouette. An instant favourite, it bestows pure joy, whether to wear for special occasions or layered up with knits on wintry walks.

The Dover Dress

More importantly, the dress that sold out in a day.

A never ending waitlist.

But fear not, another floral colourway will be arriving in January...


Cream needlecord is the perfect layering with our pink and red stripe Merino Cashmere knit blend.

The Eliza Dress

Velvet trims pull in the sleeves, creating a gentle balloon effect, while another at the bust ensures that it falls in beautiful and gentle folds.

The School Cardigan in perfectly pink hued wool is an adorable layer on top of the Sailor shirt, with its ample collar and frill detailing. 

And lovely Lolly dress, who is yet to arrive.

Violet wears the Nightingale dress at the C&R Decorex stand.

Sweet smock details of the soon to arrive Zadie dress.
