Silk Subtle Check Trousers

Checks, especially black and white, were seen on the runway of Ralph Lauren and Kate Spade. It’s a look that is smart and clean. Head to toe checks can be too busy so to get this just right stick with one statement piece.

An ideal partner for checked trousers is the classic white shirt. It is a stable that never really goes out of fashion and it was back on Valentino’s Spring / Summer catwalk for 2014. Our Pure Silk Shirt is made from sandwashed Fuji silk and is ideal for a lightweight summer look.

Elegant shift blouses were popular with both Mulberry and Calvin Klein.  A blouse with a little structure can add class to a casual look. This delightful Cotton Linen Blouse in Apple will keep you feeling cool and looking great. Our Silk Pintuck Blouse has a soft matt finish and a look that oozes relaxed sophistication.

Pastels and florals

Another look that was a big hit on the catwalks was sweet florals, especially in soft pastel shades. Burberry and Nina Ricci were just two of many designers whose pieces had added flower power. It’s such an easy look to wear and so hard not to love.
