Brooks Dress | Natural History Museum

Cut in a relaxed, oversized fit from 100% organic cotton, the Brooks jersey dress offers a feminine silhouette and incredible comfort. In collaboration with the Natural History Museum, we’ve hand-selected illustrations from the pioneering work of 17th century naturalist Maria Sibylla Merian to create a unique all-over print.

A German-born naturalist and scientific illustrator, Maria travelled the world’s oceans observing insects and flora. For more information about her life and work, read the full story over on the Broadcast.

Lovely dress, beautiful pattern

I love this dress, it fits well, is a nice cut and the pattern is delightful.

The only way it could be improved was with pockets!!!!

Love this print!

The print on this collection is amazing. The colour and detail in it is amazing. I got the t-shirt and then when it arrived ordered the dress as well. The feel of the fabric is so soft but you can also feel the quality of it as well. Really pleased

Beautiful dress with a Great Story to Tell!

Honestly, I cannot find anything to dislike. Fabric is soft to the touch. The illustrations create a pattern which you and your imagination can just dive into. Very beautiful and contemporary design despite being based on illustrations from the 17th Century.

Also very interesting and empowering to discover that there actually existed a female naturalist and scientific illustrator back then.

Easy to wear

I wore this dress for the first time for our road's 75th anniversary of VE Day get together - lawn chairs at the front of our gardens, drinks and nibbles and lots of chat, albeit calling to one another even though we couldn't share the drinks or food. It was a perfect dress and was commented upon. The warm weather has disappeared for a bit but it's going to be a summer favourite. I'm 76 and will be in the category of people who will be on lockdown for longer but even if I have to wait until next year I want lots of people to see it and it's not going to date. It washes beautifully and didn't need ironing.
