A Sparkling Summer

]
Our show-stopping Couture 'London Plane' Table Gown just got its first dose of summer sun and what a dazzling display it delighted us with. This is table that  does all the talking, for fine dining in its most eloquent hour. A transfixing scene of 260,000 sequins embroidered in a unique camouflage-esque pattern, results in a heady mix of artisanal craftsmanship and scintillating, sparkling glamour. 

See the collection here, with each colourway in 165 x 380cm  vailable now for the ultimate summer celebration. The collection is also available made to order on a bespoke basis to your exacting requirements. 

Love,
S&B

[ The Inspiration ] 

The Table Gowns' design derives its inspiration from the procession of London Plane Trees that line the streets  surrounding our shop in Notting Hill. Their leafy, graceful branches cover the streets protectively year-round, quiet giants, beautiful and plentiful.... the lungs of London. Their distinctive mottled and multi-coloured bark, that creates an almost camouflage-esque pattern, forms the basis of the design.





[ The Details ]

Each 'Table Gown' has approximately  260,000 sequins embroidered onto pure 100% French linen. The process takes place in Switzerland, on classic Saurer 'Schiffli' embroidery machines with special made to measure sequin applications in a length of 14 metres. These machines are custom-made for sequin-cutting, are over fifty years old and cannot be found anywhere else in the world.

To achieve  he 165cm width of these designs, our manufacturer had to develop a new, high precision technique to embroider the cloth in two strips without a visible connection. This technique is executed entirely by hand.

Once created,  each cloth is retouched by hand - around 12 hours is needed to retouch a single table gown because of the complex, multi-coloured camouflage design. The final finishes and hemming are then completed by hand in the S&B studio in London.
