Oriental patterns and prints are back in a big way for this spring/summer 2017 and frankly we couldn’t be happier. Continuing fashion’s constant cycle and regurgitation of trends for the coming seasons, 90’s makes the hitlist for next season.
Oriental prints have a classic appeal yet manage to remain contemporary when crafted correctly, the key to nailing Asian prints successfully is to counter-balance your print just right to offset your look but not clash or go over the top.
The holiday saviour for throwing on and keeping cool without comprising a killer look, Kimonos are perfectly versatile for the (hopefully) brighter weather ahead. Usually comprising of light and floaty fabrics, the Kimono can be interpreted as a layer or jacket as your mood and need dictates.
