August. Still light late into the evening. The month when a new season comes into view – and the excitement of a new wardrobe comes with it. Do you get that too? The feeling that you’re ready for a wardrobe change as the seasons begin to shift? We definitely do. Our new collection will be here soon so, ahead of its arrival, I’ve asked Rachel to share her favourite new pieces. Here’s Rachel’s edit…
Rachel’s Edit: our Creative Director shares her new season must haves
The Rossetti Dress
“I love how the geometric sketch work brings a bit of edge to a feminine, floral print. And the bright, brilliant ochre hue is so mood-lifting. I’ll be slipping this Rossetti Dress over jeans. I’ll also try layering a long-sleeve stripe tee underneath when it starts to get cooler.” – R.
The Carolee Slacks
“I’ll wear this fresh interpretation of our popular culottes with a chunky brogue or ankle boot. These slacks are softly tailored for a hint of smartness, without taking away from comfort.” – R.
The Isa Jacket
“The Isa Jacket is the next addition to our Elements Collection. It’s not intuitive that cotton can be rain-friendly. Though with a waterproof coating, we’ve made this 100% organic cotton cover up just that. And its golden ochre will brighten up even the gloomiest of forecasts.” – R.
The Gallery Jacket
“The Gallery Jacket is a cosy wool blend. A contemporary pattern. And an effortless throw-on silhouette. This part cardigan, part coat has the power to pull even the simplest of looks together.” – R.
The Ansel Top
“The Ansel Top is going to be the one I reach for when I don’t know what to wear or I’m in a rush. Those times when I really need something that looks refined with minimal effort. This top’s secret is its slick, contemporary print paired with a slightly oversized fit. It’s makes for such an easy, chic piece to wear.” – R.
What do you think of the pieces Rachel loves? Do you love them too? How might you wear them? We’d love to hear from you.
