V&A Poppy Print Coat Dress
The bestselling coat dress is back, this time in a deep navy base and multi-colour poppy print. Cut from 100% organic certified cotton, this shirt dress is the sort of piece you'll reach for when in the mood for something statement yet elegant. It's tailored to fit slightly loose, but you can cinch it gently at the waist with a sash tie to create a more defined shape.
The poppy print is based on a dress fabric from the 1930s, originally by the Calico Printers' Association in Manchester, now held in the V&A archive. Made by People Tree and the fair trade producer partner Creative Handicrafts.
Material: 100% Organic Cotton
