Trend Story: The Forbidden City

Trend Story: The Forbidden City

We hope everyone is still staying safe at home, we know it can be quite troubling but we shouldn’t beat ourselves down. This week we proudly present to you our final mini collection - The Forbidden City! Being stranded at home doesn’t mean that we can’t get ready for this summer. Read on for our inspiration behind this mini collection!

Drawing inspiration from the East - decadent shades of red with luxurious gold piping and embroidery detail evoke memories of the 'Forbidden City' in Beijing; a truly regal touch that will empower you to forge your own path and rule your kingdom.

For SS20, sunset colours reign supreme, warming up the catwalks whilst referencing the Eastern tradition of representing prosperity and luck for the new year. Meanwhile, vivid hues of blue in tunic styles, tees and denim compliment with a cooling nod to Pantone's Colour Of The Year, bringing a touch of serenity to balance out the fiery shades for the Summer season.

Mix and match to find your fashion equilibrium.

Embroidery was a key feature in our tops in our last capsule collection, but in this collection, our classic embroidery is reimagined in the form of tunic-style dresses and jackets. 

The Kimono Kaftan. A colour statement in Pantone’s colour of the year for 2020 and a favourite colour of ours, this classic kaftan-inspired mini dress is the ultimate summer piece. This boxy fit mini dress features gold piping detailing and stunning hand beaded embellishments on both front and back shoulders. With a wide cut sleeve and straight cut hemline, this is the ultimate breezy beach dress! 

A loose cropped fit and wide kimono inspired sleeves gives our new cropped jacket a unique boxy silhouette. The jacket features colourful hand embroidery across the front and back shoulders giving it a 70’s retro feel.

With opulent colours like classic red and golden yellow in oriental shapes, this mini collection is inspired by our best and most romantic memories of the Forbidden City. Gold piping and tassel detailing add a subtle hint of luxury and decadence. 

Our signature cut-out detailing continues to make an appearance with cheeky cold shoulders and sneak peeks of skin at the back and front of our jumpsuits, giving a unique twist on classic shapes.

Flowy shorts in silky material, bright red flared jumpsuits and boxy dresses all scream summer sunshine, strolling down the beach or lounging by the pool enjoying the summer breeze. These items are definitely super comfortable to be in during hot vibrant days!
