The ‘Summer Holiday’ collection is mostly in shaded silk fabric with colours such as blue, grey and black – like the moods of the sea.
Dannielle models a long ruffled jacket themed with fitted black pants. This outfit can be worn as a buttoned-down dress as well. Either way, it’s a cool ensemble, and the fabric is light, playful and comfortable to wear.
Carrying on in the same colour palette is a spaghetti strap high waist dress. The skirt crosses over shortly below the knees to emphasise the hips. This cocktail dress gives the wearer a feeling of confidence and ease.
Once again, following the same colour scheme is a mid-calf length dress with a broad frill from shoulder to a bright waistband. Here too the crossover skirt gives the dress a sexy twist.
The smoky coloured kaftan in a pleated fabric can be worn as it is or with pants for a modern take.
And then there’s the sun, which is a short romper with exaggerated frills in bridal satin and a long net skirt.
