With temperatures and deadlines rising, summer in the city can sometimes become a dressing challenge for those with busy agendas until August. Inspired by a working girl muse, Sleeper debuts with a line of tailored business-appropriate looks that also reflect the brand's love for inner and outer comfort.
In this collection, Sleeper pays tribute to the poppy. In Ukrainian culture, this flower holds many beautiful meanings – it symbolizes the sun, the infinity of existence, lush beauty, freedom, and peace. The detachable poppy-shaped flower pins have been designed in collaboration with Ukrainian designer Anton Belinskiy, and can complement any piece from the collection, adding the feminine energy of calm confidence to the wearer.
“The poppy is a flower that is very close to our culture, it is a symbol of peace and freedom, says brand co-founder, Kate Zubarieva. This collection also takes on a new meaning of a symbolic partnership as, for the very first time, we have collaborated with Anton Belinsky, a talented Ukrainian designer, who is also our dear friend, and who has designed these beautiful hand-crafted poppy pins, especially for Sleeper”, - adds Sleeper co-founder, Asya Varetsa.
The New Flower Power suit in navy and grey is made of lightweight and breathable linen and comes with a jacket and pants. The tailoring capsule is complemented by a 2-piece Lili Marleen skirt suit in bright blue, navy, grey, and pink gingham print. The waistcoat of the suit is adorned with a delicate bow on the back and is followed by a maxi wrap skirt.
For a playful feminine look, all pieces can be decorated with detachable flowers that come separately in a pin set of poppy flowers in pink or red.
Another new versatile piece that will effortlessly take you from the morning meeting to an evening cocktail is a Bella Polka Dot Dres that comes in three colors - beige, white, and pink. These styles will be available online from March 27.
Sleeper Spring Summer 2023 collection features pieces that reflect simple elegance and modern femininity, and can easily transition from an office-appropriate summer uniform to a more relaxed ‘weekend at the seaside’ look.
Sleeper classics were also reintroduced in new colors and patterns for the Spring Summer 2023 collection. Rumba linen suit now comes in bouquets, and black gingham prints, the feather-trimmed Party PJ is available in navy, black, and pink prints, the iconic Atlanta linen dress with puff sleeves comes in bouquets, and black gingham, and Belle dress is available in bouquets print. These will be available online from April 7.
