Lucie Loves...Fashion // 2/2 Playing dress up with Roz Boutique at the Partite + rave en vert Summer Sample Sale, Dalston


This weekend I headed East to meet up with my good friends, Roz and Marcus, to catch up, have coffee, a bite to eat and soak up the sun on London Fields, Hackney.

I was fortunate enough to meet the lovely Eleanor Dorrien-Smith from Partimi. A recent Central Saint Martins’ Graduate, who had previously worked for the likes of Mary Katrantzou, Tata Naka, John Galliano and Eley Kishimoto before launching PARTIMI in 2009.

Eleanor’s early capsule collection was snapped up Anthropologie for sale in their USA stores and online - this alone is proof of Partimi’s utter covetable-ness.

So, when I received an email inviting me along to the Partimi meets sustainable fashion brand - rêve en vert summer sample sale. I realised I’d be daft not to go! After all, what girl can resist looking at beautiful things when asked so nicely?

I first fell in love with Partimi after spying Eleanor’s infamous Heath print on the Young British Designers website. (You can see my Heath outfit post here.)

Partimi. Their earthy colours, flowing silks and subtle, yet exquisitely feminine, beauty had me hooked in an instant. The collaboration with rêve en vert works very well too. Both brands are true believers in trying to create sustainable fashion.

However, Sunday’s little East London outing was the first time that my friend Roz had ever heard/been introduced to the brand and, I can honestly say, she was very taken by it. The shift-style dresses looked incredible with her blonde hair and blue eyes and skimmed her curves beautifully.

What we’re wearing (from top):

Our thoughts? Partimi certainly has staying power and mass-appeal.

The prints are ageless. These are collectors’ items.

I’m very excited to see what Eleanor does next…
