Patra SS18 Collection introduction

Patra SS18 Collection

Welcome Spring with our all-natural new collection of women’s clothing

It’s still February and technically, still winter, but we are ready for warmer weather and delighted to finally introduce our newest Spring Summer collection! Full of beautiful colours, soft fabrics and timeless pieces, we are certain that our new range will be a lovely addition to your summer wardrobe. Featuring silks, cotton, linen, bamboo and viscose –  breathable, lustrous fabrics that are kind to the skin, lightweight and amazing for the summer.

Inspired by nature: Pure fabrics, perfect for warmer days

It’s time to lighten up our spirits as we shed the layers off. We’ve embraced the colours and moods of the warmer months ahead – blossoming florals, bold and beautiful, light and breathable, soft and moody.

The styles are soft, elegant and simple consisting of easy separates and gorgeous dresses made to stand out by the beautiful colours that give the whole collection a fresh look.

For summer we focus on light, cool and absorbing fabrics that let your skin breathe. Bet on natural, breathable fabrics and ditch the polyester. As always, the Patra team’s focus is on high quality natural fabrics and materials made with nature’s ingredients.

Prints and Colours

Summer is a great season for prints because you can show them off! No coats and layers to hide under. This is why at Patra, we pay careful attention to our colourful designs. A great example of this are our jersey dresses; they come in daring colours and abstract prints, and if you’re not a dress person, there’s a top for every taste! Viscose and cotton feel incredibly soft.

As ever, at Patra we’ve made beautiful natural fabrics a top priority. This season we’re brightening up Noil silk, Crepe-de-chine silk and soft jersey interlock silk with new print designs.

Our palette depicts the freshness of the summer season. One way you can make your outfit look effortless is by letting the colours do the work! Any wardrobe staple is instantly transformed by adding a pop of gorgeous colour. Tonal highlights for the new Patra collection include:

  • Soft Pastels: We followed this season’s direction and went for some pretty pastels shades – Orchid, Lilac, Powder Blue, Vanilla.
  • Navy Blue Hues: Navy is the ultimate summer colour! Other variations of blues and greens like Azure, Blue Stone, Blackberry and Teal add a cooler look to the range.
  • Bright Bolds: We’ve added an extra layer of colour to our collection this season. Our prints come in moody blue bases with pops of bright Cyclamen, Orchid, Coral and Scarlet.

Design Details

Patra’s in-house design team create each garment with two things in mind – comfort and style! Our Spring Summer collection is full of clean silhouettes and flattering shapes with clever little details. The smallest of details can make a garment stand out – new texture, a clever button or a ruched sleeve. It’s all about taking a garment with a great fit and giving it a little lift.

Pintucks are a fantastic example of small details that make a big difference. Our linen-cotton knit dress and top or a more classic pure Fuji silk shirt are rocking this design detail. The crochet lace panels and trims on our Bamboo-cotton tops and embroidered shirt make simple designs stand out.

Checks and Stripes

We took the traditional idea and brought it up a notch – our checks and stripe designs are far from ordinary. Bold colours, hand-drawn designs that instantly lift your outfit to the next level.

New Fabrics and Textures

Some of our fabrics have formed the core of our collections for decades, like our Noil silk, Fuji silk and Crepe-de-chine silk. However, with the new season come new ideas. We like updating our designs and prints and we are constantly on the look out for new materials that offer diversity and help make our collection whole.

Modal and Tencel – incredibly soft and lightweight. We are absolutely sure you will love these lovely new additions this season. They come in a relaxed sleeveless top and a pretty button through dress. They are man-made but with natural ingredients that are environmentally friendly.

Embroidered cotton – it goes hand in hand with the summer season. Try our soft embroidered cotton dress that hangs perfectly or our crisp embroidered cotton shirt, available in two essential colours.

The Trousers

No one does printed trousers better than us! And this season is no different as we have even expanded our range. Go for the mosaic print in our viscose jersey trousers – there’s nothing better than stretchy trousers that don’t look like loungewear. Or choose cool luxury with our new Noil silk printed trousers.


The Dresses: Naturally flattering styles for all occasions

Summer is synonymous with pretty dresses! Our range is big and beautiful – with old favourites in new colours, like our lustrous pure silk jersey dress, and some new designs in flattering shapes like our pleated cotton jersey dress. Modern and elegant!

Roll on Spring!

Each season the Patra team works hard to develop a collection that is easy to wear, natural, and beautiful. Our Spring-Summer collection consists of beautifully made garments that are modern yet timeless. We sincerely hope you love it as much as we do.
