Rixo launched its new collection today, and we’ve already tried all the best dresses

Rixo’s new collection launches are always much-anticipated events. Over the last eight years, the brand’s founders, Henrietta Rix and Orlagh McCloskey, have honed their design craft and become purveyors of perfect dresses (opens in new tab). Unsurprisingly, the brand has gained hoards of Rixo-loving fans in the process. 

Today marks a new era for the brand, as Rixo will be moving away from its previous model of bi-weekly drops, to instead start launching collections monthly. For January, the label has aptly named its range ‘New Beginnings,’ and here at Marie Claire, we were offered a sneak peek. 

Filled with daisy prints (a symbol of new beginnings), Rixo’s January collection epitomises everything we have come to love about the brand—vibrant patterns (opens in new tab) and signature silhouettes included. Our editorial team were lucky enough to try the collection ahead of today’s launch, and (spoiler alert!) we were certainly impressed. 

Over the last few seasons, Rixo has made strides to ensure its collections are more inclusive than ever. The brand launched an even more diverse selection of extended sizes (opens in new tab) last September and now caters to a range between size 6 and size 24. “People come back to Rixo because they remember how good they felt wearing it,” co-founder Henrietta Rix told Marie Claire at the time. 

The feeling of a Rixo dress is certainly one that stays with you, as our editors learned this week. Keep scrolling to see our editors try on Rixo’s new collection and read our honest, unfiltered thoughts below.
