This collection was created with the working woman in mind. This was reimagined upscale office wardrobe – power-dressing, modernised – with colourful everyday wear emitting a classic femininity mixed with ease and comfort. Versatility was key, with pieces able to be worn 9 to 5 as well as on the weekends. Looks were tailored, luxe and sophisticated, yet laidback and cool. Outfits for lounging on the beach and leisure-time were abound: fuschia ruffled, high-cut bodysuit, reminiscent of the ‘80s and ‘Baywatch’; hot-pink and white polka dot sheer top and bottoms with black sandals; lavender trench with oversized lapels. Lots of cut-out featured, with suggestive slits and panelling, proving something as dull as a suit can still be sexy, freeing, and without constraints.
