Linkup-Rose Fulbright- A British Lifestyle Luxury Brand/Beachwear


Hello Ladies, I am bringing something I am excited about today. On Monday, I talked about what to wear when going out to dinner when vacationing at the Beach. Today, it’s all about what I am wearing while at the beach! I was recently introduced to this Luxury brand from the U.K, Rose Fulbright. She has been featured in all of these impressive magazines and I will tell you this designer had me interested from the get-go with her hand painted designs and love for vintage styles. Her items are stylish, classic and are of amazing quality, which is what I look for in garments I add to my wardrobe.” In 2015 Rose launched the Tropical Collection of silk lounge wear, which quickly became the brand’s best-selling range. She has been featured by British Vogue, The Telegraph and Lucia Van Der Post, among others. I will be sharing with you the beautiful Tropical print Beach Robe I had chosen from this collection today, as I share more about the company.

Ms. Fulbright says, “Our selection of sophisticated beach cover-ups come in versatile organic cotton silk, which is immune to sand and sea, and has a luxurious sheen for effortless holiday elegance. The exclusive hand-painted print designs in bold and beautiful colours will ensure you turn heads on the beach, and keep you stylish from dawn to dusk and beyond.”

Turning heads… did you hear that friends?….  

Below, I was picturing in my head an afternoon with friends, enjoying the pool and sipping fruity cocktails as we enjoyed but yet protected ourselves from the sun with my robe, sunglasses and black beach hat.  I decided on a vintage inspired black one-piece swimsuit and white espadrilles to let the colors in the robe take center stage. Although I will be talking about Rose Fulbright Beachwear, the brand offers, in addition,  gorgeous silk/cotton lounge wear and lingerie. 

When I was contacted by Rose, I was initially introduced to her line as she spoke of her glamorous designs as inspiration from the 1910a to the 1930s. As you know, I have a love for things vintage, as I collect vintage brooches as well as love styles of dress from certain eras. I have included a video on how Rose designs her pieces and it is something to see. The task of hand painting images  on garments such  the beachwear I am wearing and the process it takes to complete a garment will be shared.

Ms Fulbright first said of her work,

” I am the founder and designer, and enjoy using colour and stylised natural forms to decorate my 1910s-1930s inspired loungewear and beachwear pieces. I design and hand-paint all our prints, and in the Tropical Collection’s case, I have used my grandmother Susan Williams-Ellis’ paintings (she is the artist, ceramicist and ultra glamorous granny behind Portmeirion Pottery).*Wiki

  • A percentage of profits from the first edition of the Tropical Collection will go to Oceana, a charity working on initiatives to preserve the worlds oceans.

All our garments are lovingly hand-made in London, to be treasured not trendy, conveying the Bloomsbury Set’s famous adage beauty in everyday life, and encouraging ladies to embrace colour, print and self expression in their clothing, whilst always remaining chic and sophisticated. Please read here to learn more about how  the Rose Fulbright Brand believes in making things ethical and sustainable, as well as supporting charities with the same philosophy.

From the website, ” Rose Fulbright was started in 2013 with the Classic Lingerie line, inspired by 1930s lingerie silhouettes. The range quickly gained popularity among women looking for stylish, luxurious alternatives to their every day lingerie. Fashion press delighted in the designs, and Rose Fulbright became a name synonymous with quality, luxury and the best of British design.”  I may just have to buy one of the bra sets!

It was tough deciding what to choose. I browsed through the lounge wear, and although I love my robes, these were quite glamorous in silk designs that flowed from the body. Gorgeous. As tempted as I was to have a robe or nightgown, I thought of the trips my husband and I will be taking to Tybee Beach next month, and to Italy’s Almalfi Coast next year. I do not currently own a beach cover-up ( I prefer the sound of the British “Beach Robe” sounds so much more stylish and positive ) so I was looking for one I could wear over my swimsuit.

I chose the Kauai Beach Robe, as I loved the colorful fish print inspired by her Grandmother’s paintings. The tropical fish seem to come to life as they are patterned in different angles swimming on this light and airy robe. The details of the robe are:

The Kauai Robe is a cocoon-shaped robe made from printed and white organic cotton silk. Featuring our renowned Tropical Print.

This robe has three-quarter length draped sleeves and is open at the front with a stylish contrasting lapel. It is made by hand in London, has 3/4 sleeves, in a one size fits all cocoon shape. The fabric is:

  • Fabric: 60% organic cotton, 33% silk, 7% hemp and is a combination of white fabric with printed Tropical fish pattern

I do love the pretty sea blues in the Coastal collection, patterns of blue shown in caftans, beach robes and scarves, but my eye was truly mezmorized by the colorful fish I could picture swimming in the seas, as Rose told me about her Grandmother’s painting of these fish as she scuba dived. Her Grandmother sketched the fish first on tracing paper underwater.

I knew I was going to have a fun photo shoot as my hubby ( photographer- comes cheap!) and I made our way down to the pool. No one in sight, at 11 Am, as I figured,  we needed at least an hour or more time to get in the photos I had in mind. As we wrapped up,  mother  with their children would make their way to the pool in the 90 degree heat, ready for a dip! . It was quite a bit of fun as I imagined the different poses that would show off this gorgeous ,fanciful,  Kaui Robe.

How could one not feel glamorous in this beautiful robe? I was wearing a work of art, meant to be an heirloom, and passed down. I love the design, the color, the comfort. I  love the elegance behind this beach robe, as it flows behind me when I walk around the poolside.   On her website, ” Every one of the garments is made by Rose who oversees the patterns, print and design.” This robe is machine washable. and each item is hand-made from fine fabrics using couture sewing methods, and Rose hand-paints unique print designs.”

Just a for fun, a “vintage inspired” black and white…  What I also love about Rose Fulbright and her designs is that the company supports manufacturers that use both ethical and sustainable practices. To learn more about what this means for this company, read HERE.  She is inspired by her travels and vintage pieces as well. I’ve always loved the elegance and style depicted by the early 1920’s.

I am happy to share with you this video in which Rose describes the design process to her work. Take some time and enjoy !

    That robe from England is absolutely stunning. SO MUCH WORK AND ART went into it. I love it. The fact that her grandmother originally drew the pretty tropical fish!! What a beautiful print and style. You did it justice in this stunning shoot. Love the black one piece swimsuit, classy and comfy. I have been eyeing a similar one from Target and I need to get it already. I can see the 1930s in your entire look, Jess.
