70s Chic, Back And Better
Where Vietnam and Watergate were intertwined with bell-bottoms and feminist liberation. Groovy, baby. Tie dye sophistication offers a nod to the early 70s, while burnt orange, olive, teal, royal red and apricot hues take us back to the wild, sensual party-revolution period that was one of the best decades for daring fashion.
Slouchy and Layered
Linen is perfect to layer and play with as the temperature drops. It’s trans-seasonal, effortless and often just oversized enough to put comfort as its modus operandi. Juxtapose it against more form-fitting pieces for a super chic silhouette. Lean back and hone into the soft, slouchy look that’s dragging its feet on catwalks across the globe.
Is it a bird? Is it a plane? No! It’s just the superhero trend, here to style the day. Capes are huge this autumn season, offering a softly androgynous look that goes from daytime to nighttime in one swift kapow!-crash!-bang! punch. Our cocoon shrugs are the ideal cape shape, offering body-hugging pleats and structure worthy of a superhero reception.
