Ode to the English Rose: Introducing the Watercolour English Rose Collection
We are thrilled to announce our newest collection, Watercolour English Rose, which is now available at Jolly & Goode. This playful and lovely line of apparel includes dresses, crop tops, women’s athletic shirts, bikinis and more, all featuring beautiful watercolour rose designs.
But before we dive into the details of this collection, let us take a moment to talk about the term English Rose and its cultural significance in British history.
The term English Rose has been used to describe a fair-skinned, rosy-cheeked, and delicate-looking woman with a gentle disposition. This description became popular in the Victorian era and has since become an iconic image of British femininity.
In 1997, at the funeral of Diana, Elton John performed a version of his hit, "Candle in the Wind", which began with the adapted lyrics, "Goodbye England's rose...".
In British culture, the rose represents love, beauty and strength. It's been a symbol in literature, art, nursery rhymes (Roses Are Red) and national emblems. The rose is the national flower of England and was the national emblem of England during the Tudor era. The Tudor Rose emblem combines a red rose and a white rose as a symbol of unity.
With our Watercolour English Rose collection, we hope to reflect the loveliness of the English Rose with items that are truly a wearable joy. Each piece in this collection features a stunning watercolour rose design that is both playful and lovely.
Whether you're looking for a new dress for a spring event, a crop top for a day at the beach, or a stylish bikini for your next South England beach holiday, our Watercolour English Rose collection has something to suit you. And the lovely yoga leggings and women’s athletic shirts are included when you want to add a touch of elegance to a workout.
