British fashion designer Alice Archer, known for her whimsical and
floral designs, has collaborated with high street retailer Anthropologie on
a spring/summer 2020 collection.
The collaboration, inspired by a trip to Sissinghurst Castle and its
white-rose gardens, stays true to Archer’s feminine and romantic style and
features dresses and tulle skirts, as well as bedding and furniture.
The 20-piece collection spans fashion, accessories and homeware, and
reflects the hallmarks of Archers’s aesthetic, with feminine silhouettes
that are easy to wear with gathering, rouching and frill details, as well
as prints hand-painted by Archer, and embroidery detailing that takes
inspiration from an English country garden.
The fashion collection is made up of classic cotton, silks, tulle,
satins and Broderie Anglaise, with highlights including a tulle skirt and
matching embroidered top, as well as hand-printed slip and wrap dresses. In
addition, there are floral-print wide-leg trousers, an embroidered
playsuit, and a bias cut slip skirt.
There is also a range of accessories including green and pink leather
mules, floral scarves, hair clips, headbands and floral scrunchies.

Commenting on the collaboration Archer, said in a statement: “It has
been a total joy to collaborate with Anthropologie on this collection and I
am thrilled with the results, which feel so feminine and beautiful.

I have many shared interests and values, from embroidery and textiles to

explore how embroidery works in these different contexts.”

embroidery and print along with her elegant approach to design is
