Bohemian Women - The Grisettes

August 09, 2019

Bohemian Women - The Grisettes

Our current collection is about celebrating the bohemian spirit and all the forms it takes, focusing on the trailblazers who had a desire to change things and make their own way in the world.

To celebrate the arrival of Haute Bohemians in store and online, I wanted to share with you the Grisettes, who embody the bohemian attitudes and who were part of my inspiration for the collection.

The name Grisette originated in France in the 17th century and referred to young working women who were seamstresses and shop assistants, often models, as well as other things. These women took control of their lives and artistic expression to rise above their social status, and live independently as they wished. The name grisette became synonymous with adventurous women with flirtatious and intellectual aspirations, living in and for the moment.

The combination of hard work and determination, artistic expression, and free spirit the grisettes embodied encompasses the bohemian spirit in my eyes and inspires me. I’ll be sharing some other women who embody the bohemian spirit and inspired me for this collection over the coming weeks, so make sure to stay tuned. - A x

Paradise can mean many different things for different people. For some it means a tropical vacation somewhere new and exotic. For others, a holiday away at the family batch. Paradise can even be as simple as settling in on a Sunday with a cup of tea and a good book...

Reading is something that always helps to keep me sane. It can be great to help us understand more about the world and people around us, or to escape them entirely! Personally I’m a big fan of escapism…

HOW TO MEASURE YOUR BODY

There are three body measurement points that you need to know to ensure a great fit – bust, waist, and hips.

When taking your body measurements, wear the undergarments you normally wear for the most accurate results. Use a flexible tape measure, or a piece of string and ruler, and hold it around each body point so it is comfortably snug.  If the tape is cutting into your flesh, it is too tight.

To ensure an accurate measurement around your body, keep the measuring tape as level as possible from front to back. We recommend measuring yourself in front of a mirror so you can check this from a side view. If you can, get a friend to help you to ensure the most accurate measurements.


Bust: Wrap the measuring tape around your back and where the tape meets across the fullest point of your bust is your bust measurement.  

Waist: Wrap the measuring tape around your natural waist, the slimmest part of your torso, pulling the ends to the front. Where they meet is your waist measurement.

Hips: Wrap the measuring tape around the widest part of your bottom – this is usually low down towards your thighs. As with your bust and waist measurements, where the tape meets is your hip measurement.

Length: To measure the length of individual garments against your body it is best to measure down the centre of your back. To do this, start the measuring tape at either the base of your neck for dresses and tops, or at your waist for skirts. Measure down your body to the measurement listed in the garment description. This will show you where the garment comes to on you. When you are measuring for length, remember to make sure you are standing completely upright – it is best to have someone help you with this. Alternatively, compare the measurement with the length of a garment you already have.
