Glamorous and sophisticated, the new-season velvet is refined with a touch of decadence.

Pleats in lightweight fabrics mean more volume and movement, less bulk. In mesh or metallics, they are sexy with hint of reserve.

Reinvented White Shirt

The not-so-classic white shirt gets an upgrade with new proportions including ruffles and another key trend: big, billowy or sculptural sleeves.

Big Bow Sneaker

Sneakers are wearing big, sweet bows this season – a feminine touch and yet another reason to love our favourite shoe.

Something Sheer

New-season femininity has another expression in light-as-air transparent fabrics. Clash your textures by pairing a sheer overlay with knits and denim.

Ready to sparkle? This season’s razzle dazzle is definitely not only for night time; expect glitter meeting grungy on the streets.

Chunky heel, pointy toe. That’s all you need to remember when you go boot-shopping this season. The look is as modern as it’s chic.

Silk Bomber

The embroidered (or not) silky bomber is a street-style staple and a key piece in every It-girl’s closet. Paired with a skirt or high-waisted denims, it’s a really fresh look.

Velvet Platform

A pop of rich colour plus the luxury of velvet in the quintessential transitional shoe. These spotlight-stealers would look simply awesome with a floral-print dress.

Finally, there’s good news for frill-seekers. Rufflemania continues to bring playful femininity to your closet, this time in unexpected iterations such as a leather skirt or a sweater tops.
