Traditional Skills in Every Stitch

Here at David Nieper, we take pride in making our collections from first sketch to final stitch at our fashion house in Derbyshire; we also like to work with local companies who like us make in Britain, using the finest materials.

This season our design team has been working with neighbouring Cluny Lace, a family run business that has been producing lace since the 1800s. Cluny Lace combines the best of old lace making traditions with new technology to produce a wide range of exquisite designs.

The intricate lace patterns perfectly complement our fine woven nightwear, adding that extra special finishing touch to our nightdresses.


The cutaway lace trim on our aqua green, woven cotton sleeveless nightie is supremely soft and beautiful. The lace enhances the light weight, cotton voile fabric and is expertly cut allowing easy movement all night long.

Cluny’s beautiful laces have been delicately sewn to several of our designs in this collection, adding interest around the cuffs of our long sleeve nightie, and to create pretty design detail on our shorter length, cap sleeved design.

Discover our favourite holiday colour and go into the blue

If you’re anything like the team here at David Nieper, your thoughts are probably turning to travel plans and some longed-for sunshine. Even if you’re not packing your suitcase any time soon, there’s nothing like popping on summer’s coolest shade to get you in the holiday mood. This preview of our new travel collection features every seasonal hue and spirit-lifting shade of blue.

Let’s start with the deep, azure blue that puts us in mind of the shimmering Mediterranean coast. It simply says summer – and it’s a shade that suits everybody. These ocean blue hues are perfect for holiday swimwear. All you need is a long, cool drink and you’re ready to recline in style.

For a relaxed summer look, choose a beautiful aqua print. This versatile cover-up is just the thing to pop on after a swim, or when you’re coming home from the beach. But it’s so much more than that – team it with trousers for an easy-breezy daytime look when you’re browsing for souvenirs or enjoying a leisurely lunch.

There are some lovely, lighter shades of blue to try too – like these delicate sea breeze tones. The moment we saw this lovely fabric we thought of British summer skies and days at the coast – so fresh and cheerful. This easy-wear dress is perfect for holidays or simply popping to the shops on a sunny day. Just add your favourite ice-cream cone and you’re ready to go.

Get Active this Winter

Low levels of sunlight can have a real impact on well-being during the winter months and the cold, dark days make it tempting to hibernate and stay indoors. However, it’s a well-known fact that sunlight and gentle exercise boosts the body’s supply of serotonin (the happy hormone) so getting out and staying active can be an instant mood boost.

It can be uncomfortable to be bundled up in bulky winter clothes while taking exercise, so here at David Nieper we have put together a selection of our best active wear this season that is both warm and easy to wear.
