New Brand Arrival — A' Court

Introducing a modern womenswear label designed by Rebecca Taylor...

Tessuti announces they are the first exclusive international stockist of A’Court, a modern womenswear label designed by Rebecca Taylor.

Following the sale of her eponymous New York-based brand of 27 years, Wellington-born Taylor returned to Aotearoa and spent the last three years creating a new label A’Court; a collection of garments that feature feminine tailoring juxtaposed by masculine suiting fabrics, all loosely inspired by historic heroines from the Victorian era. The capsule collection includes four beautiful shirting options and one dress style...


The elegant, 100% silk Iris blouse reveals subtle details, such as the deep tucks on either side of the placket and a removable silk tie, making it easy for sophisticated, everyday wear. The silhouette can offer a more relaxed look when sized-up, or fitted in your true size.


Crafted to honour classic menswear construction, the Edith Blouse features double-bib detailing, reminiscent of a traditional tuxedo shirt. Weaving in femininity, petite mother-of-pearl buttons are placed at the cuff and down the centre of the placket. Made in 100% OEKO-TEX-approved cotton, Tessuti holds the Edith blouse in a range of neutral shades including soft rosewater, a crisp white, and a timeless white & blue stripe.
Black Iris Shirt, $1275
Edith Blouse in Stripe, $595
Edith Blouse in Rosewater, $595


Demonstrating A’Court’s impeccable craftsmanship, the Florence blouse features a beautiful embroidered collar, reflected in the ruffle detailing at the sleeves. Available in white 100% OEKO-TEX approved cotton, this shirt pairs well with denim or tailored trousers alike. [Florence Blouse, $795, pictured left].


Romantic ruffles sit alongside mother-of-pearl buttons amongst a luxurious creme silk. Slightly cropped for versatility, with enough allowance for a tuck into high-waisted trousers. [Marie Silk Blouse Creme, $1275, as seen on lead image].


Embroidery is also explored in the Camille dress, with a deep V neckline, alongside voluminous puff sleeves that come to a three-quarter length. The full skirt hits mid to lower calf length and can be adjusted with a removable tie at the waist for a more cinched-in silhouette. Crafted with 100% OEKO-TEX approved black cotton.

Tessuti Director, Ali McIntoch is honoured to present such an iconic designer. “Beautiful functionality is at the forefront of what we look for in all fashion garments stocked at Tessuti, we offer versatile garments that form an elevated capsule wardrobe to wear across seasons. What is truly special about A’Court is the limited number of garments made, so you can be assured when wearing an item from their collection that you are one of few, which is a unique experience.”
Camille Dress in Black, $1245
“A’Court offers a mindful approach to the traditional model of fashion consumerism. We use only the best fabrics and each item is crafted by incredibly talented makers in Italy, who have been crafting the art of suiting for over sixty years.” — Rebecca Taylor
