A collaboration of mother and daughters, invented along the routes from West to East, The Ottoman Collection evolved from our shop in Kensington, London in the 90’s. The intrigue of creating beautiful, simple, exotic and contemporary clothes became an obsession and a passion, driven by a love of handwoven and handmade by masters of their arts, incited by that treasure chest to find the point where couture meets everyday.

Moving with the times, these robes have become the dress of choice and we have honed them into beautiful, wearable clothes that bring with them a lifestyle. An essential piece of research was to pack a suitcase and travel the world from London and back to the English countryside thinking and learning, reading and looking; striding through sporting events, endless entertainment, an awareness of art; breakfast, lunch and dinner, bed, beach, boardroom, desert and dale, family meetings and office moments contemplating The Ottoman Collection. Life became lovely, delightful, no more dullness, but instead comfortable, cultured and thoughtful.

We like to think The Ottoman Collection transcends the ages, blurring cultural and conventional barriers, politically and aesthetically.

Built from a genuine passion, a love of robes, of history and fashion, of combining cultures with no boundaries, we believe we are creating a collection and a lifestyle which is bohemian, classic, chic, simple and contemporary, where the West truly meets the East.

We hope you love it as much as we do and would like to add a short acknowledgement to the sultans, the yogis, courageous people with attitude and Yves St Laurent of the 1970’s.
