The first rendition was a classic wrap dress with a straighter cut through the skirt - featured here in a heathered magenta sweater knit for autumn.

A popular piece from the start, this dress has since tried out many different colours and patterns, from Missoni-style waves to tropical pineapple prints to the vibrant hues of the candy shop collage. 

The skirt became fuller, with soft draping and a generous, swinging flare - perfect for twirls! 

The little cap sleeves for summer add to the fun, flirty style. 

The Mrs. Robinson Long Wrap Dress was made for more formal events, with an elegant, windswept skirt and a festive print of champagne bubbles.

In a smooth jersey fabric, the Mrs. Robinson appeals to function as well as form; this fabric is easy care and travel friendly. You can squeeze it into a suitcase and then pull it out, wrinkle-free and ready to wear

The FW19 collection features the dress in a dynamic geometric print in bursting jewel tones, perfect for harvest dinners and arriving in head turning colour!

But with each and every iteration, a few things have remained the same…

The top-quality materials and detailed design have made the Mrs. Robinson into a dress that is in high demand, year after year. The wrap-style bodice hugs your figure and beautifies every body type with just the right fit. The long sash accentuates your natural waist. And the classic cross-over creates a flattering V neckline - an elegant frame for your favourite statement necklace.
