Love our Liberty Print Dresses!

libertydressbloglibertydressblog22

libertydressblog3After selecting the gorgeous Liberty Tresco print, the design team got to work at designing two fabulous dresses, drawing inspiration from the botanical print and relating it back to our signature jones + jones style. For one design, the Carly dress, a combination of the Liberty print ‘Tana Lawn’ and luxurious black lace was used to create a daring style with a full lace back bodice and a deep-V front. The Tresco print splashes across the full circle skirt to create a fun summer dress.

As for our Natalie dress, a simple design enabled emphasis to be kept on the exciting print. The print was inspired by the Tresco Abbey Garden, a British island south of Cornwall, so the design team set to work on designing the perfect summer garden party dress. A subtle slash down the front and triangle mesh inserts at the waist allow a little amount of skin to be shown, whilst the full circle skirt keeps the design cute and feminine, perfect for those summer garden parties.

So if you want the Best of British for what is shaping up to be a very British Summer, look no further than our new Liberty collection. A fun and vibrant look that will brighten up any day!

Meet the jones + jones models…

Ever wondered what it is like to be a jones + jones model? Want to know more about the gorgeous girls who model for us? Meet Line one of the jones + jones models…

jones + jones

- Tell us about yourself?
Well, my name is Line Rindvig (pronounced Lina), I am 28 and from beautiful Denmark. I have been based in London for six years now so I guess you could call it my hometown. I was introduced to jones + jones via my sister (who is the manager of the jones + jones stores in Paris and Saint Tropez). The two owners of jones + jones have been wonderful to me, taking me onboard almost every shoot and inviting me to parties and dinners, I have a lot of love for jones + jones.

- How did you start modelling?
I guess it started when I lived in Copenhagen 8 years ago and then when I moved to London I was often stopped on the street and asked to do freelance modelling jobs and then one thing led to another. However, I would never categorize myself as a ‘real’ model – but I do know how to pose in front of a camera haha.

jones + jones

- What was the most interesting shoot you have done with jones + jones and why?
That’s a good question…..hmm…they have all been awesome! I think I have done 7 or 8 shoots for jones + jones. I LOVE the team, we always have so much fun when we are abroad together, the jones + jones family. We did a shoot in Paris last summer and it was beyond beautiful! One evening we were shooting on a rooftop, overlooking the sunset and you could see The Effiel Tower from there – it felt more like a holiday than a job. Our shoot in The Canary Islands last winter was gorgeous too…oh and the one in Saint Tropez last summer – all the shoots have been amazing to work on!

- Out of all the photos taken of you which is your favourite?
I’d say it’s the one where I am wearing the peach Florence dress on the beach; the wind is blowing in my hair and the background is tourquise water. AMAZING shot! I call it the Beyonce shot because the photographer told me to to look like “you run this world”, but I have a lot of favourites thoughout the years.

jones + jones

- What is your favourite part of being a jones + jones model?
Being part of such a lovely team and travelling to exciting places with them. I always have a lot of fun when we are abroad together – they call me “The Diva” cause I make a lot of fun out of wearing their stunning dresses looking like a princess. My usual style is very ‘urban chick’ in camo jeans and leather jacket.

- What would be your dream modelling job?
jones + jones in New York – Lower East Side!!!

-When your not busy modelling, what are some of your favourite things to do?
When I’m not posing in front of a camera I work within Live Music Events such as Festivals and big international Music Award Shows. I also manage an awesome music producer and a hip hop group and help to promote hip hop gigs all over London – I’ve also hosted a gig myself. There is no doubt that my passion is within music!

jones + jones

- Where is your favourite place you have travelled to?
New York – the city of dreams. There is a lot to say about The Big Apple but over all it’s the sort of city where everything is possible and everything inspires you…..at least it does to me. I love the Lower East Side as most of my friends lives there but I am also a fan of The Bronx and Brooklyn.

- Favourite movie and why?
Hmm, I’m not good at watching movies – I am more of a music person. I know it’s not a movie but the TV series The Wire is one ot the greatest thing to ever be on TV – that show needs more credit.

- How do you define your personal style?
Urban – I don’t follow trends, I just buy what I like. Often I ask my friends if I can get the clothes they don’t wear anymore – then I spice up my wardrope with that. I don’t know anyone that has the same style as me – it’s very simple but still diffent to most. There are a lot of photos of my personal style on my blog.

jones + jones

- What is your favourite jones + jones dress from the new season and why?
The new version of the Nicky – with the neon top. I LOVE IT!

- Who is your style icon?
Iman – David Bowie’s wife. No doubt!
