LA BELLE DRESS
Been seeing cut-out patchwork apparel all season? Ohvola adopts a feminine take on this hottest trend with Le Belle’s lace texture. Cut-out patches at the waist give the illusion of a tighter curve with a banded strip and subtle pleats down the hips for a comfy fit. Fully lined and non-sheer, this subtly sexy dress closes with an exposed back zipper. Available in sizes XS, S, M, L.
Your favourite quirky colour combinations are making a comeback with Lexinton’s preppy shades! A soft polyester racer-cut that exudes casual chic, mixing and matching bottoms, accessories, and bags have never been this fun. Top is fully lined, non-sheer and closes with a concealed back zipper. Colour block away! Available in sizes S, M, L.
Now that we have perfected flattering tailored pants, here’s Hathor as the perfect pick-me-up with its abstract brush strokes and colour swatches. Constructed in soft linen for ease of movement, these slim-cut trousers close with a hook and zip closure. A subtle zipper slit at the ankle even avails allowance for fancy boots and Doc Mart’s for the fashionista in you! Available in sizes S, M, L.
LEA EMBOSSED TOP
Your favourite basics don’t have to be plain and stale. Lea comes in a stunning embossed cotton texture that is classy and elegant. A low u-shape back and functional zippers at the shoulder make rocker chic subtly sexy. Non-sheer, the top closes with a concealed side zipper. Available in one size only.
French it up with monochromatic chandelier motifs reminiscent of ornate neoclassical galas. Now in a fun and casual playsuit, Baroque features adjustable straps and an elastic band at the waist to accommodate all shapes and sizes. Functional side pockets are a quirky addition for weekenders. This cotton piece is fully lined, non-sheer, and closes with a concealed back zipper. Available in one size only.
Looking for a smart shirt to function in the summer heat? Tayce’s breathable chiffon promises you comfort without compromising on style! Sheer sleeves with a subtly sexy flare are a perfect play of textures against fully lined crisp collars and bodice panels. Polished gold buttons run down the front with a pair of cutesy additions at the cuffs. Available in sizes S, M.
BOUDOIR OVERLAY DRESS
Most enamoured by the fashion world is old French glamour. Haute couture is now made wearable in the Bourdoir Overlay Dress. Be it tiffany against white or blue against jet black, a lace overlay tailored against smooth cotton is a stunning exchange of textures and colours. Fully lined and non-sheer, this bodycon fits snuggly and closes with a concealed side zipper. Available in sizes S, M, L.
ARDEN BOX BAG
A whimsical twist on the ever popular square bags, Arden comes in an edgy box shape that will liven up any ensemble. Made of faux leather, a wide banded strap prevents shoulder abrasions. Front flap closes with a clasp and turn lock opening.
Revel in regal precious stones and gems with Phelia. Diamante studs line the centre with a swinging teardrop bead. With a polished gold finish that is luxuriously royal, the necklace is of adjustable length and closes with a lobster clasp.
