A classic Apolina style re-worked for colder weather. The ‘Bo’ gilet is a striking layering piece featuring elements from our ‘Jacinto’ embroidery. Lined in contrast fawn coloured cotton and lightly quilted, this is a true unisex piece and looks perfect over simple jersey layers and winter knits.

Apolina is rooted in the idea of modern craft, this Autumn ’18 collection draws on this love-affair with hand techniques, showcasing new designs, new embroideries and intricate smocking.
The mood looks back to simpler times of homestead living and traditional crafts. The time–faded colour palette conjours a nostalgic mood of faded patchworks, vintage welsh blankets and old English embroidery samplers.
Apolina is designed in England, but inspired by travel and the natural world.
Each piece has been produced ethically and with great care in India.
With a focus on highlighting traditional Indian craftsmanship, Apolina works with a family-run Indian manufacturer, who employs equal numbers of women and men (unusual for this industry). Ethical trading and production practices are strictly adhered to and workers are not only paid a fair wage, they are also treated as members of the extended family.
Each item is unique due to the hand finishing of the garment. Styles are produced in limited numbers through 'small batch' production.
