The Nude London is the emerging RTW brand that needs to be on your radar. Established by Angelina and Julia just recently in 2016, as life-long friends they draw on their travels for their inspiration, having lived, studied and played around the world. They design beautiful, feminine collections and are dedicated to dressing women who long for the unique and seek the stylish.

From the tailored blazers and shorts to their flirty dresses, their collection will make you wish for summer. Undoubtedly the Bloom Blouse, Red Star Dress and Camomile Dress are the standout pieces of the collection bridging contemporary elegance with the stylish free-loving spirit of the 60s/70s. We catch up with the power-duo to learn more about their brand.
