Summer 2019 offers an exciting collection that balances function with all-out fantasy! There are no hard and fast rules this season. The best strategy is to keep an open mind, with no options off the table.
Designers have finally hit on a way to make 1980’s look modern. We see shorts, skirts, high waists and big shoulders appearing again, featuring a high gloss and athletically tinged filter. Team the fashion trends with vintage kitten heels - adorable little buttons that provide just enough elevation to change the curve of the leg. A timeless way to wear heels is with pencil skirts and trousers or more vampishly with a mannish blazer!
If you thought of sneakers as too ugly or too casual you haven’t yet found your sneaker tribe! Wear floaty floral frocks or trouser suits with run-around sneakers. Once you’ve tasted comfort it’s hard to give it up.
We still want glamour. The difference is that five years ago we were trying to do it all the time. Now we give ourselves a break. Enjoy flats, sneakers and heels. Heels have become more comfortable. This is progress. Long live both ‘comfort’ and ‘va-va-voom’ in one irresistible package.
How to take your shorts this spring? Knee-length – slim line in decadent fabric. As hard wearing as jeans. Wear with modish mules, funky platforms or kitten heels
The superior colour of the new season. Beige, in a myriad of shades. How to wear it? Head-to-toe or add a plop of colour with a pair of standout shoes.
This technique has come a long way since the 60’s – unapologetically everywhere – seeping into satin, baby-soft merino wool and even printed on ladylike leather. Controlled bursts of colour and tie-dyed sweaters - best showcased with spindly heels and smart cropped slacks.
A little lime goes a long way. It’s a bold move, but giving your wardrobe, a citrus hit will lend your look extra zing. Wear with classic silhouettes in black.
Always practical and invaluable – the multi-pocketed trouser has a well-heeled makeover. Dress them up with heeled sandals or dress them down with sneakers.
The dress – choose your length. Why save a tremendous dress for best? Give that gown its moment in the midday sun. Heels, sandals and jazzy sneakers – set the mood.
Run with the new spool of gravity defying bows – they’ll instantly lift your spirits. Worn in your hair – or on your feet.
Elegant dressing gets a reboot. Smart polished clothes to go to work in, to have lunch in – clothes to simply look nice in – a sleek uptown sensibility is on the remake. Pair tailored coats, skinny skirts and shorts with the dinkiest kitten heels and pointy toes.
We look forward to seeing you instore.
