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.
Throughout the season I’ll be sharing some women in history who embody the bohemian attitudes and who inspired me. Today I wanted to share Virginia Woolf, who explored difficult and complex themes in her writing and was an inspiring and empowered woman.
Virginia Woolf is closely associated with the bohemian movement and for good reason. Through her work as an author and literary figure she became a trailblazer of feminism. Virginia was fiercely independent, starting her own publishing house to publish her work, and was supportive of other artists through her work with the Bloomsbury Group. The work of Virginia Woolf has inspired modern literature, letting her legacy live on.
I’m inspired by Virginia’s passion for the arts, her ability to question the status quo, and her determination to make her dreams a reality. - A x
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…
Grace shares her favourite lockdown reads (and listens) for you all to enjoy.
Anna is a long-time friend of Wilson Trollope. We recently visited Anna’s Textile Therapy Exhibition, which happened right here in Wellington, and we were blown away by her latest collection of work. We spoke to Anna earlier this month about her inspiration, the exhibition and the future of textile therapy.

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.
