Sydney’s Tutu du Monde has been creating beautiful ballet inspired dresses for girls since 2009, and seven years into its journey, the label’s new collection is bound for adventure. Inspired by stories of castaways, pearl fishers and treasure hunters, Spirits of the Seven Seas is magical.
This season’s Tutu du Monde collection has a few garments that could translate to every day wear. The Parrots Paradise Dress ($62) is a simple drop-waist dress with a capped sleeve and gathered skirt. And the only thing that gives away the Bamboozled Dress ($62) as a Tutu du Monde garment is the ruffled crinoline peeking out from the hem.
Every day clothes aside, Spirits of the Seven Seas celebrates what Tutu du Monde does best: exquisite dance and formal wear embellished in fine beading, embroidery and made from gorgeous silks and cottons.
Only the most gentle little girl can be entrusted with the delicate tulle of the Shipwrecked Cape ($145) with its tiny hand-sewn beads and sequins. This piece is extraordinarily beautiful as a garment or a work of art to be framed.
Dresses like the Treasure Trove Tutu Dress ($162) have asymmetrical tiers of tulle that cascade from the hip just so, and would look divine spinning across the stage.
If your girl prefers just a hint of ballerina grace with her casual outfit of jeans and sneakers, Tutu du Monde’s accessories are really special. There’s the Bows and Arrows Necklace ($38) with its rose pearl embellishments and ribbon tie, or the flapper-style Mermaid Tears Feather Headband ($39).
Tutu du Monde’s Spirits of the Seven Seas collection is available online, and shipping is free worldwide on orders over $200.
