With this collection we’ve released two different cuts of jumperskirts with a matching headbow or headdress. You get the option to choose between white or black cotton lace.

De Nachtwacht
2020

Take us back to remniscent days…

De Nachtwacht collection is back! Originally our very first installment of the Dutch Masters Collection back in 2015. At that time we had a very limited release, so we’ve heard your requests and are here to answer.

We went all out in this collection with a variety of cuts to choose from. You can decide if you want a longer lenght JSK or regular lenght as well as choose between a high waist or normal waist bodice.
Not only that, we also have two different fabric types to choose from. Each with their own character.

About De Nachtwacht:
The Militia Company of District II under the Command of Captain Frans Banninck Cocq, is mostly referred to as the De Nachtwacht (The Night Watch). The painting is commissioned around 1639 by Captain Frans Banninck Cocq and it was completed in 1642. It’s one of the most famous paintings by Rembrandt van Rijn and one of the most well-known paintings from the Dutch Golden Age. The painting is displayed in the Rijksmuseum. There is a gallery in the museum specifically designed for De Nachtwacht.

The Anatomy Lesson JSK

The Anatomy Lesson
2020

The composition, the use of colours and light and striking details of ‘De anatomische les van Dr. Nicolaes Tulp’ by Rembrandt van Rijn made us fall head over heels in love with it. This masterpiece features an anatomy lesson from the Amsterdam Guild of Surgeons, this took place on the 31st of January 1632. This was permitted once a year and was painted by a still young Rembrandt at the time.

For this collection we’ve decided to pair up with a fabric printing company based in The Netherlands. They use a environmentally friendly method of printing the fabric. Next to this we can order the fabric in just the right quanities, so there is nearly any waste of materials. The fabric itself is both smooth and soft to drape but of a nice thick quality.

De Nachtwacht
2015

De Nachtwacht collection holds a very special place in our heart. It’s the very first release from our Dutch Masters collection where we intertwined Dutch history with Japanese fashion.

De Nachtwacht was released as a long version JSK. It was a bit different from the regular Lolita sillhoutte, but it worked great to show the print in its full glory!

A selection of our work in the past years

The House of Royal Stewart
2019

‘In my End is my Beginning’ – Mary, Queen of Scots

Our OTT version of the The House of Royal Stewart is inspired by the history of Scotland and my personal adoration for Royal Stewart Tartan. The pattern itself is so striking and we’ve combined it with various design elements. The sides of the dress have faux leather kilt closures as well as silver coloured crest buttons. At the shoulders we have draped fabric to create the illusion of sleeves. The back of the dress features a lovely corset lacing.

Our Velvet JSK version is a bit more playfull with a hint to old-school Lolita. The dress features black velvet ribbon details along the neckline and on the skirt. The JSK has a very tailored fit at the bodice and also features a corset lacing at the back.

The Field of Burnet Roses

The Field of Burnet Roses
2019

‘The rose of all the world is not for me.
I want for my part
Only the white rose of Scotland.
The smells sharp and sweet – and breaks the heart’
– Hugh MacDiarmid

As an accompany to ‘The House of Royal Stewart’ collection ‘The Field of Burnet Roses’ came to life.
The fabric used for the JSK design is a lovely cotton with a satin weave, therefore the dress has a subtle, luxurious shine to it. The fabric has a vertical pattern of small roses on it. The JSK features a tailored fit and is adorned with many layers of frills. The back of the dress has a lovely corset lacing. Green is not a colour seen often in Lolita, but it’s so great to coordinate with different colours.
