Baum und Pferdgarten. A brand that I was previously unaware of until a whole load of my friends started chirruping away about the B&P summer sale and, in particular, their gorgeous, comfortable dresses. Look at those prints! They make a casual-fitting summery piece into something rather more special; these are dresses you can simply throw on with a pair of strappy sandals, or flipflops, or even some battered Converse, and still look nicely put-together. Baum und Pferdgarten are the more relaxed, more functional equivalent of your always-ready Diane von Furstenberg or Issa dress; beautiful prints, wearable lengths and a cut that’s designed to flatter. B&P’s are definitely looser where the others cling, and the fabrics (for the summer collection at least) are on the lighter and cooler side, but they are easily as worthy of the “wardrobe staple” status.
The dresses shown above might still be available in the sale if you hurry, but I have my eye on a few other things including the “Hudson” dress and the “Etsu”. You can find sale dresses here.
