September + South = Spring!

Have you heard? It’s finally spring in the southern hemisphere! Our winter was dismal. Too much rain, too much cold and not enough rainbows to make it all better.

This season heralds the return to voluminous silhouette. While tailoring may borrow from a man-style aesthetic, powder pink and brush stroke prints add an all-important feminine sensibility. Welcome to spring.
