Creative Director’s Tips; Utility Trend

 The mood in fashion is changing as we move into high summer and even, dare I say it , start thinking about Autumn …

There is a new simplicity in the air, a focus on clean lines, functional detailing, luxurious cloths and sophisticated neutral colour palettes.  For this reason our top tip is our newly launched summer safari collection. Invest in our luxurious snakeskin jacquard silk shirt dress in khaki. You can wear it now relaxed with fringed flats and a cross the body satchel bag to make the perfect summer look. Then for winter it will look great layered under a military washed leather jacket teamed with over the knee boots.  

If you’re picking up on the trend away from dresses then we think the drapey khaki combat trousers are a great wardrobe addition. We love them styled with the soft grey sequined silk vest and the studded suede sandal.

If all of that feels too minimal then try the feather print dress, the draped front gives it a softer modern edge and the sporty ruched belt adds that key touch of utility styling. The print was created in the studio and reminded us of Indian head dresses – what does it remind you of?
