  1. Home News Say Buongiorno to our Italian Linen Collection

Blog

Italy is known for its fashion and, when it comes to manufacturing, for its quality and superior craftsmanship.

Dressing well is not just fun for Italians, it is deeply ingrained in their culture; making a good impression is important and beauty is everywhere - from the spectacular monuments to the elegantly tailored suits.

La Bella Figura

Which is not surprising considering the romanticism of their surroundings: we would likely be more inspired to dress up if the Trevi Fountain was the backdrop to our Sunday supermarket trip!

So what does Blue Bungalow have to do with Italian fashion?

Well, as you know, we take pride in our linen offering and are well-known as Australia’s number one linen destination - come summer, you fashionistas flock to our website to complete your wardrobe with carefree linen tunics and throw-on-and-go linen frocks.

Not only are linen clothes nice to wear, they become a necessity at the height of summer. No other natural fibre is as lightweight or breathable (or, let’s be honest, dries as quickly, when you suddenly go from sweating to air conditioning).

Which is why we stock a range of must-have premium Italian linen - particularly for those of us that are big believers in dressing up our linen and taking it from day to night by adding a heel and statement jewellery.

The Annalise Linen Scoop Dres

With its draped balloon silhouette, the Annalise suits a wide variety of body shapes - while it is midi length, it still manages to show some skin thanks to its curved dolphin hem, which works to elongate the leg and is particularly flattering if you’re wearing flat sandals. Oh and did we mention that it has pockets?  

Available in Blush, Navy or Natural, here’s how we would style it:

The Bella Linen Pocket Dress

This is the dress that you’ll want to have in your wardrobe on those sweltering summer days! While it is sleeveless and quite roomy, it remains of the utmost sophistication thanks to the delicate bust detailing and the quality of the fabric itself.

And this one was designed with comfort in mind; linen is quite a stiff fabric but elastic was added to the underarm to allow freedom of movement. Smart AND stylish - just like you!

Available in Black, Blush or Khaki, here’s how we would style it:

The Tosca Linen Dress

If you’re looking for a versatile style, this one’s for you. The Tosca drapes beautifully over the body and can be worn as a dress in the warmer months or styled as a tunic top with a pair of white pants in spring or early fall - the perfect transeasonal piece.

The Tuscany Linen Tunic Top

Prone to jumping from beach to bar but still want to look chic and put together? There’s literally no easier way to do so than to slip on a Tuscany linen tunic top over your togs - just add a margarita and a pair of sunnies (and don’t forget to invite us). This is not your typical swim cover-up - its hi-lo shape elevates the look and its button-down priest collar allows you to show off that fabulous swimsuit you treated yourself to!

Available in 3 colours, there’s a swimsuit for each tunic:

The Beatrice Linen Hi Lo Dress

Picture this: you’re holidaying in Noosa (or in your backyard - whatever works) and your husband announces that he’s just organized date night (a girl can dream) - you have 10 minutes to get ready.

Well no need to panic, Beatrice is there for you. That’s the linen dress by the way.

The V-neckline and the sleeveless design add a bit of *spice* while the relaxed A-line silhouette provides ultimate comfort and plenty of space to accommodate dinner, wine and dessert.

Available in Green, Navy or White, here’s how we would style it:

The Xena Linen Tier Dress

We don’t know about you but we love a sleeve, even on our summer dresses. The Xena dress hits just below the knee and has flattering elbow-length sleeves - the perfect dress to have around when you don’t have anything to wear. The subtle A-line shape is flattering and it can instantly be made dressier by adding drop earrings or a necklace.
