High Summer 2005
Be a free spirit with Miss Selfridge this summer. Wear
soft handcrafted kaftans, maxi length skirts and vibrant prints to embrace
this romantic ethnic inspired season.
Miss Selfridge Kaftans and Sarong Wraps
Unwind with this ambient sun kissed look and rejuvenate
yourself in a silk embroidered top and maxi length wrap skirt to keep you
cool through the day. Chill out in sun bleached Anglaise lace and rope
wedge sandals, perfect for laid-back Ibizian beach chic. African
abstract prints make for a luxe-hippy feel while colours are washed down
shades of blue, corals and hazy orange with fresh white.
Miss Selfridge Bikini and Broderie Dress
Escape to faraway isles with an explosion of exotic colours. An ultra feminine silhouette is created with floaty soft dresses and
dip-dyed kaftans are worn over embellished bikinis. Jewelled sandals and
huge charm trimmed bags are perfect to accessorise this eclectic summer
look. Crochet knits encrusted with shells and beads are teamed with short
ruffle skirts to create a cool beach vibe. Tropical prints are mixed with
vibrant colours of orange, hot pink and blue tones of aqua to azure for a
glamorous summer look.
Crochet and Dip Dye Ombre Features
African floral prints add a modern twist on this
inspirational journey as ankle skimming dresses sit perfectly with
bejewelled cork wedges. Raffia trim bikinis add a sophisticated touch
while tunics and halter neck tops with embellished necklines add spirit to
maxi wrap skirts and cropped walking shorts. Complete the look with a
heavy beaded belt worn low and add a large na´ve crafted inspired necklace. Subtle shades of mosaic blues, amber and clay pink are mixed with metallic
hues of brushed gold and silver.
