Awesome accessories


by Camilla Ridley




I hope you are all keeping well and staying safe. With lockdown in full swing again and the idea of traditional Christmas shopping trips looking increasingly unlikely, we've decided to make the brilliant collection of accessories we have specially sourced for our London store available on our website. From extraordinary jewellery to belts, footwear and hats often it’s the clever little details that can really make an outfit. And they make great little gifts. Many of these items are produced in the UK by small artisan businesses that share our values for quality, craft and individuality. And like our Ridley silk dresses, they’re often made from the most beautiful materials using traditional techniques. Do feel free get in touch if you have any questions about any of these items or brands, we’re always happy to help. In the meantime here are each of the founders from each of the labels to introduce their collections to you.



Tarra Rosenbaum

My London atelier is the culmination of a lifelong dream to have a studio where I can meet clients and help bring their jewellery dreams to life. It's a workplace, a sanctuary, and a (very) mini boutique situated at 77 Tower Bridge Road. I design and make in this space, and I also work with artisans in Hatton Garden and around the UK to produce the highest quality little sculptures that I hope will become future heirlooms for my clients.  A goal in my everyday life is to tread lightly on this planet, so I source and use recycled and ethical materials whenever possible.  Each piece is handmade, as I believe this infuses it with the life force of the artisan, giving a talisman-like energy from the production alone.

Best sellers:

I am probably best known for my bespoke piecesOften it’s about re-imagining family heirlooms by re-configuring existing stones and precious metals into a new design that better suits a customer. 

The Aurora ring is my signature piece. This would certainly be a wonderful and very generous gift. Heirloom stones can be used or we can find the perfect stones for you to celebrate your life journey. 

For Stylish stocking fillers:

Acorn charms, open adding an element of surprise, and of course the giver can include a tiny note if so inclined. You can also purchase the acorn on a 60 or 80cm handmade chain. Kat from @doesmybumlook40 has the large acorn necklace.

The tree coin necklace is an excellent piece to add to any “neckless”. Becky from @bricksandstiches wears hers almost every day along with you, Camilla!

Also hand carved snake rings in sterling silver are a unique stylish gift for a teenage boy or girl.

Favourite Ridley dress

Without doubt my beautiful floral printed Ridley London Tarra dress, which I can't wait to bring out again for Christmas!

Christmas just wouldn't be Christmas without...

Since moving to London, my tradition has been to spend Christmas with my dear friend Sally Mackereth and her two children in her amazing architectural home.   We always play a few board games and this year I am looking forward to introducing a new game "The Genius Square" you can find it here 


Camilla Rose Millinery

I started my millinery business in 2013 with the idea of making beautiful, sculptural handmade hats, headpieces and hair accessories for every occasion. The majority of my pieces are handmade in my studio in South West London with the exception of my fedoras which are blocked by one of the original British hat manufacturing families and then I trim and finish each one by hand. I source my millinery materials from suppliers who work directly with the local crafts people and use virtually every piece, so wastage is minimal. Autumn Phillips has worn my fedoras to Cheltenham Races and Ginnie Chadwyck-Healey wore two of my headpieces to Royal Ascot at home this year both of which featured in the Telegraph’s most glamorous Ascot looks. I was also asked to make a hat for the Royal Ascot charity auction this year, to be recognised alongside top milliners was something I’m really proud of.

Best sellers:

Dusk Fedora in pink: one of my original designs and every season is always a best seller. We all need a good staple fedora in our wardrobe and this works just as well in the city or countryside, rain or sun, dressed up or down. And they'll last years.

Tousle Headband: the perfect addition for all those zoom meetings (and future parties!!), adding a headband automatically lifts an outfit.  Any of these colours would work with the majority of Ridley’s stunning liberty print dresses.

Barrette Bow: A new addition to my collection at an accessible £32, this little bow adds a touch of richness to a simple outfit or elevates a dressier look. Pair with one of Ridley’s gorgeous leather jackets for a less girly girl look.

For Stylish stocking fillers:

The Braided & Velvet Barrette Clips are the perfect stocking filler, available in lots of colours they are the perfect little hair accessory to finish off any outfit everyday and from only £10 what’s not to love!

Favourite Ridley dress

I adore the Morwenna Maxi in chocolate forbidden orchard Liberty silk. A gloriously rich fabric, the perfect statement dress for Christmas day paired with one of our little coordinating velvet barrette bows of course!

Christmas wouldn't be Christmas without...

The book 'The Night Before Christmas'. Ever since I can remember on Christmas eve my Grandmother read it to us and now I am continuing that tradition on with my own young children which is incredibly special!

Favourite Ridley dress

I absolutely love your Ridley London Josephine maxi dress in that stunning blue floral Liberty print silk. Absolute luxury!

Christmas wouldn't be Christmas without...

Beef wellington for Christmas Eve, is a family tradition I love. Also lots of games, including twister. But my big big Christmas hack is for life-changing Brussel Sprouts. Usually I can't stand them, but a few years ago I discovered a recipe on the podcast Table Manners which is to roast your brussel sprouts with whole hazelnuts, purple grapes and balsamic vinegar. Amazing. Literally life changing. They have the crunch from the hazelnuts, sweetness from grapes and acidity sweetness from balsamic. Utterly yummy and I highly recommend this to everyone.

Peachy Belts

We’ve been designing and hand making our belts here in the UK since 2007, using the finest Italian leather and a factory in Leicestershire that’s been producing belts for over 70 years. We stock three widths including a new elasticated version and all of our belts feature our unique interchangeable buckles which give them incredible versatility. I am hugely particular about the leather quality that we use and the craftsmanship. We only use sustainably produce full grain leathers (so have not been split) and most are vegetable tanned, a longer form of prepping the leather that makes for a finished product that will soften and improve with wear. And all of our belts are also lined and stitched, so they retain their shape and quality over time.

Top: A stylish Ridley London Octavia Midaxi dress in luxurious printed floral silk paired with a green Peachy Belt. Bottom: Examples of best selling Peachy Belts this season

Best sellers:

Giraffe belt and gold hoop buckle: A great stand out belt that works well with denim and black jeans. 

Navy ostrich belt with Swarovski crystal waterlily buckle: People struggle to find navy belts, and its such a classic colour so it sells well all year round. 

30mm Guinea Fowl belt and Swarovski sea turtle buckle: This is a really smart belt that looks fabulous on black jeans, and the little Swaorvski sea turtle is a pretty and eye catching buckle that works on any belt colour.

For Stylish stocking fillers:

Belts make a great Christmas present that will be used for years to come. We’ve also have a new clutch bag out which retails at £35 and would be a great stocking filler.

Favourite Ridley item

I love the new short knits, and they work very well with my belts. The polly polo neck and the leather jacket are absolutely my favourites. And I love my Anne top in metallic printed isadora feather silk, it’s so stylish and great for Christmas!

Christmas just wouldn't be Christmas without...

I like to ride out on Christmas day with my daughter and go for a glass of champagne on horseback with our neighbours. The cereal box challenge is a firm family favourite!
