We are SO excited to announce the launch of our Made in Britain Capsule Collection!
Meet Ripley - our wonderful Pini Dress, made right here in Britain by our amazing team.
Thick cotton twill in a punchy but sweet Strawberry Pink.
A longer length than our mini pinis (by 3 inches!) this will come on average to just above the knee! She has our signature tie straps, a chest pocket with tuck detail a lower apron pocket.
Layer her over your fave tees and jumpers, dress her up with smart shoes or down with converse, style with our without a belt!
ABOUT THE COLLECTION
Following on from the success of working with our partners and teams in India, we wanted to bring skilled textile jobs back to Yorkshire with the same ethical production ethos. Yorkshire is our home and was once famous for its thriving textile industry - Barnsley itself used to be home to thousands of garment workers and was a huge source of identity and community for the area.
As the factories closed down, it left many skilled workers unemployed and no longer able to use their skills and years of experience and knowledge. We believe creating and sustaining well paid and rewarding jobs is one of the best ways to benefit a community and that’s what we try to do both in India and the UK.
This second Made in Britain collection consists of 9 pieces and includes reworked pini dresses, midi pinis and cargo trousers, featuring signature Lucy & Yak design statements and new colourways lime green and strawberry pink. We’ve used practical hardwearing fabrics (thick 100% cotton twill) from a local Yorkshire family run business who have been developing high quality fabrics since 1901. With large pockets, classic shapes and utility details with modern twists on traditional colour pallets. The collection is shot at an old local colliery, paying homage to the old industries of Barnsley and the communities that live and work here.
This is a limited run of only 90 pieces in each style - we have an expanded collection and further sizing in the pipeline for the future.

Body Measurements (how to find your size)
This pini the a really good length sitting just above the knee (I’m 5’7) and the colour is a lovely bright, almost luminous pink.
Love the colour, love the fit and love the quality!
I had been waiting for ages for a longer pini dress as the mini pinis are too short for me. I bought this with the black version. I love the fit, style and the lovely bright colour :)
