 Out of Office

An interplay between masculine and feminine; this trend features hybrid pieces that reference office working but with a relaxed, carefree vibe. City stripes, cotton shirts, blazers and tailored trousers are all reimagined, recoloured and given new proportions for Spring 24.                                                                             

We love the elegant Munthe – Jacob Blazer with multi coloured pinstripes it has a regular fit, straight shoulders and flat pockets, the matching pants are designed with a pleated front, high waist and hidden button closure.           

Essentiel Antwerp – Multi Stripe Cotton Shirt in light pink /ecru and light blue, brings a fun update to a timeless wardrobe staple. The oversized silhouette is finished with a rounded hemline and button detailing at the back.

For a wide relaxed look try the Essentiel Antwerp light weight poplin trs, with timeless stripes, the waistband is elasticated, and the trousers have wide ankle length legs. Pair with the light weight and super comfy Wushu -Master Sport Col 456 for effortless style.   Add some dreamy 18ct jewellery from Mimi Et Toi-the Englise Bracelet with its big irregular shaped freshwater pearl and some beautiful hooped Creissant Earrings with dropped detail to take you from day to dinner.

The brands signature "Tongue" applications are on each side, in the neck, and on the back.

We also love the details in this Stella Nova - Sequin Blouse Bright Mint. This sequined top has a peplum and a round neck. The long sleeves with a gathered cuff create a small frill effect. The blouse is created with a string closure on the back, allowing an open back.

The wrap over Frnch - Achouak Navy Satin Dress is so flattering it’s super drapey fabric has tuck details, side pockets and a self-tie. Also in washed crepe fabric is the beautiful Compania Fantastica – Long Black Dress, a sleeveless fluid dress with a round neck, side pockets and elastic waist detail.

Green is a key colour, the Frnch - Cadia Emerald Jumpsuit is both elegant and comfortable. Light and sophisticated, it’s flattering cut and refined details make it a perfect choice to shine on all occasions.

All are perfect for summer weddings, engagements or summer evenings, or whenever you need to feel dressed up.
