Planning for our opening collection for 2017 started as we were finishing our Holiday Collection 2016 (yes, sometimes we still procrastinate), hence the juxtaposition of formal and casual wear clearly evident. After all the glamour of the Holiday Collection, we looked forward to designing something that is as attractive, yet low-key.
Stripes, denim and cotton fabrics are, of course, in order. And in this collection, we introduced a new print -- the houndstooth -- which was made in a soft, wrinkle-free fabric, and new accents by way of covered buttons and lace trims as seen in Emilia and Lucy. We finished off with only two styles of bottoms, but as you will soon see, both bottoms can easily be mixed and matched with the tops in this collection.
The Harper bottom (above) is a glorified version of our Joey culottes. Adding the overlap panel in front did the trick in allowing it to be worn at work with pointed stilettos -- making it appear you're wearing a pencil skirt, like above. Shop the Harper bottom and Julia top.
We re-created the classic wide-legged bottom in DREW, giving you not just a denim option but also striped versions that perfectly pair with classic white cotton tops. For casual chic look, pair the Lucy top with the Drew denim, as seen above.
A prelude to summer can be seen in our Cristina top. The special bow placed in front play a major role in making this stand out. Simply pair with white denim jeans and you're done! Watch out for the release of our other special bows collection: Rebecca and Felicity.
And we're also happy to introduce the newest color of our bestselling Kaori bottom --- see the Kaori in sand here.
Kaori in sand with KATE top (above). We simply love how this simple top is a go-to piece for layering. Made from a knitted breathable material, it is every girl's essential piece all year round.
So that's a round up of our newest collection! Do visit us again soon as we launch the rest of the collection. :)
