Australian label Marie Louise de Monterey specialises in easy-to-wear styles, like this Ella Dress.
It’s woven from a soft crepe in a harlequin-style pattern with matte and shiny square checks illuminating the surface. It’s shaped with a tall stand collar, half concealed button closure, and a midi-length hem that finishes below the knee.
The fully elasticated waist defines the figure, ensuring a streamlined and flattering silhouette.
Leave a few buttons undone at the neck and layer plenty of gold jewellery for a more-is-more approach.

Credited with simultaneously bringing a refined and sophisticated French edge along with a laid-back insouciant Australian style, Marie Louise de Monterey was founded in 2019 by fashion industry alum Claire Dickson-Smith and Maria Dyoniziak. Born from the desire to create timeless, classic styles with feminine details, Marie Louise de Monterey adopts a positive approach to dressing. The label's collections are filled with exquisite details like metallic stripes and love hearts woven on featherweight cottons. Garments are executed with a classic sensibility, and designed to last for years.
Utilising an archive of vintage textiles and silhouettes, the designers embrace bygone style; clothing filled with nostalgia that feels long loved, yet always striking and contemporary by design. It is this juxtaposition of old and new that has garnered the label its dedicated following by those who lust over this fashion label's feminine cotton-voile blouses and elegant day-to-night dresses.
Dickson-Smith designs with the contemporary woman in mind. Silhouettes are at the forefront of ease and comfort, relaxed, loose, and stylish. Favouring natural fabrics over synthetics, this clothing line is designed to breathe and age beautifully, like a vintage garment.
