Inspired by Victorian garden designer and craftswoman Gertrude Jekyll, Needle & Thread’s Spring Summer ’23 collection celebrates her creative and differing garden designs. Mixing the wild, natural woodlands and the formal house gardens, this collection is the perfect nod to the English summer. The story celebrates two themes, ‘Summer Dreaming’ and ‘Somewhere over the Rainbow’.
