"A hint of the 1950s and a touch of modern day romance" an apt description for FLORADITA, the new capsule collection from Dorothy Perkins. This sophisticated boutique inspired floral collection is a mix of luxurious fabrics in simple feminine shapes. From prim full skirted sundresses and floaty floral maxis, to delicately embroidered cropped jackets and peter–pan collar lace tops, this gorgeous new range has a unique and eclectic feel to it and is perfect for the summer months ahead. Whether it's a traditional wedding in the country, a refined garden party or just a stroll in the warm sunshine, FLORADITA has plenty to offer for everyone for every occasion. This ultra-femanine broderie dress  is 100% Cotton, perfect for playing it cool on a hot summer's day!
A limited edition range of FLORADITA jewellery is also available which complements the clothing beautifully. A chunky gold chain necklace with bold flower charms adds a quirky touch, while rose printed cameos create a more quintessentially English look found on stud earrings, a statement ring and a pendent necklace.CLICK HERE TO SHOP THE COLLECTION

It has been held at the All England Club in the London suburb of Wimbledon since 1877. It is one of the four Grand Slam tennis tournaments – the other three Majors are the Australian Open, French Open and US Open – and the only one still played on the game's original surface, grass, which gave the game of lawn tennis its name. The tournament takes place over two weeks in late June and early July, culminating with the Ladies' and Gentlemen's Singles Final, scheduled respectively for the second Saturday and Sunday.
