      The Carla hand printed utility jacket takes it’s inspiration from Chloe and Ray. By using the key floral design element in Chloe on a silk screen and then applying a single colour reverse printed onto a soft brushed cotton canvas. I then use a design from Ray to add a second layered element in light blue.

      What I love about this piece is that it will always vary slightly in colour. Hand printed dyes are incredibly sensitive, and are influenced by the atmospheric conditions they are made in. This sensitivity is what creates the most incredible one of a kind colours that I love, and makes each piece as unique and individual as the wearer. For me it is within the screen printing process where the art, the beauty, and the excitement lives.

      Each one of these is one of a kind with variations to the print placement making each jacket unique to you. A labour of love, these jackets are incredibly special and made one-by-one in Brighton by one of our seamstresses.

      • 100% Eco GOTS cotton

      The Darling Difference

      Creativity with purpose
      We take beautiful images, drawings and paintings created by Sophie herself and rework them into illustrative, timeless designs. Our ethos lies in creative exploration, where art and fashion collide into collections of colour, pattern and print. We specialise in the unique, referencing and taking inspiration from natural phenomena and especially iconic Japanese paintings.

      Sustainable values
      We don’t use any plastic in our packaging. We hand deliver where possible and we collect and drop production pieces by hand. All of us walk to work. Our fabrics are purchased in the UK, we use UK print companies for our digital collections and our hand printing is done in house.

      Our sustainability lies in our production process and in keeping our numbers small.

      Read more on our Sustainability page. 

      Care for your hero piece
      We advise treating her kindly. Any silk items, especially our quintessential silk bomber jackets must be dry cleaned - and not just any old dry cleaner, but someone you trust to take care of her as well as you do. You'll treasure her for years to come. 

      Satin silk scarves are happy to be hand washed in cool water. Use gentle detergent, don’t soak and gently wring out hanging to dry. Do not tumble dry. Cool iron on reverse. 

      Please see the care label for other instructions.
