A seasonal favourite and the perfect accessory. Who wouldn’t love a kimono in their wardrobe, preferably several different prints and styles. We love the concept of its versatility, which flatters any silhouette. This accessory can take an office outfit to beach ready effortlessly.

Trend ALERT !!

 

Of all the runway trends presenting themselves for Spring/Summer 2015/2016 Cold Shoulders were, dare we say it, hot news. Most designers including Jill Stuart, Givenchy and Issa covered the trend and in doing so uncovered the shoulder.

The trend itself was one of the only ones to transition effortlessly from daywear to nightwear. From Resort lines to lavish haute couture brands the cold shoulder stood out, as a seasonal must have.

What we personally love about this trend is the agelessness and usefulness of it. A woman’s’ shoulders (generally speaking) are the last thing to age ,so this seasonal trend will leave the ladies feeling comfortable and offers a nice twist to the ordinary sleeve options in the marketplace.
