The Carmen Kaftan will see you though all of summer from the beach to cocktail parties and everything in between. By day, it can we worn poolside. By night, simply swap your sunhat for emerald earrings and the intense greens transform to become exquisite and magnificent. The clever consideration of crazy greens in both cool and warm shades, disguises the hips and tall pods spring up from the floating lily pads to create the illusion of height.
This Exotic, quirky print looks great layered over white, black, ink blues, green and silver. Choose between the Madison slips, Rosie ¾ top and skirt or pants, or the Kate tank for a flattering A-Line top. Crafted from crinkle silk chiffon, it requires no ironing. Hang it up, in the bathroom, and the creases will drop out. And roll it to travel, in fact all silks should be rolled rather than folded.
We like to think this Carmen kaftan has two personalities. This calligraphic print is delicate yet dramatic, it can be styled for day and night and the monochromatic colour palette makes it the perfect trans-seasonal piece. The batwing style sleeve and long hemline give modest coverage, smudging your silhouette, while the sheer crinkle 100% Silk chiffon provides incredible freedom to move and flows as you walk.
It features a calligraphy bonsai motif in charcoal paint, that creeps up the garment with tiny hints of buttercup yellow. Wear it over black and white, in a Kate tank and Rosie pants; or silver Kate and Rosie skirt for a glam evening look.
Gloria is the ultimate addition to your wardrobe this season. This flowing kaftan style has a longline waterfall hem so she can be worn as a dress with a Madison slip and as a top layered over our Rosie pants. This style skims the tummy and hips with its clever A-line construction. Our 100% crinkle silk sits closer to the body than our chiffon showing off just enough of your silhouette without being too clingy.
The dramatic print in deep teal and ink contrasts the bright red floral buds which appear to be blooming before your very eyes. The proportion of the print is balanced and transitions from day to night and summer to winter.
A glorious colour and print of exotic lotus flowers. A smudgy background of dark warm grey and pastels, with a spattering of elegant lotus stems in tones of lime chartreuse and pinks.
This silk will move with ease from Winter to Summer dependent on your layering.
The designer’s personal favourite!
Our model wears a size 0.
She is a really versatile “fixed scarf” – she can be worn open and just draped over the shoulders – for a really elegant long line – or tie up the 2 front panels to create either some camouflage around the tummy or for a more casual look. The open sides with a simple tie to hold together, allows another vertical line to be created – the more the merrier we say!
Silk has properties like hair and will flatten after wearing for 10 mins – and like hair can become static – which can be alleviated with a spray of Statique (available from supermarkets)
