MH x Emma Knudsen Collection
It’s here it’s here! I am so excited to finally share my collaboration with Canadian designer Emma Knudsen is now available for you to purchase!!! But let me take a moment and take two steps back and share a little about how it all came to be. You might recall seeing me wearing Emma’s iconic Lauren dress over the past couple years… it’s always drawn so much interest and questions from all of you. So when Emma approached me about a possible Spring/ Summer collection, not only was I thrilled to work together, but I was so excited to create a collection that I know you’d all love.
Together we created three pieces perfect for any occasion this spring and summer. I’m beyond thrilled to bring you two dresses: the Flora Dress & Misha Dress and a playful top: the Lilly Tank. We started the design process back in January, simply starting with the selection of fabrics and her classic silhouettes. I knew I wanted one of the pieces to be made of a delicate organic linen with gathered ruffle details, and so the first initial brain storming of the Flora dress began. We made three samples of this dress, making sure that each layer hit at the perfect level, the length was flattering and of course the off the shoulder ruffle gave off an undeniable feminine statement. The white Misha dress was designed from the original Lauren dress that Emma’s collection has been known for. We added a modest lace detail framing the shoulders to give it a fun updated look for those not only new to the dress but perhaps for those already owning the original. And then there is the Lilly tank. Honestly the most versatile, flattering and easy to wear tank I’ve ever owned. While we were browsing the different fabrics I right away knew I wanted to use this embroidered cotton because of my love for daisies and floral prints. It has a youthful yet elegantly modern feel to it, which you’ll find makes it easy to transition from day to night.
I hope you love this collection as much as we loved creating it! I so appreciate all your kind words and support. I can’t wait to see you style, shoot and tag your photos- I would absolutely love to see the pieces on you. Please don’t hesitate to send me a snap of you wearing one or two…. or three!
Meet the Lilly Tank – Sure to be your go to tank this summer. Named after my sweet daughter Lillya, this tank is perfect for any summer loving girl; just like my Lilly! It is floral embroidered 100% cotton paired with cotton lining to ensure ultimate breathability in the summer sunshine.
The Misha Dress – A fresh and feminine take on Emma’s classic Lauren dress. The Misha dress will take you from casual beach days to evening cocktails in a flash. The delicate lace paired with the more oversized, flowy shape is sure to tick all the boxes. It is quick to throw on and perfect for any body type and of course a sweet growing baby belly too. (And named after my sister Michelle, who we call Misha!)
Welcome the Flora Dress– Oh the Flora dress! It’s Blush Linen and Cotton Lining paired with the most beautiful feminine ruffles and classic midi length makes it sophisticated and timeless. Is there there anything more perfect? The Flora Dress will be your go-to for all those weddings and hot summer days! And again the ideal dress for a sweet growing baby bump, making it a great option for maternity or newborn photos too.
