When it comes to details like embellishments, you don’t need to overload.
SHOP THE LOOK: Baroque embellished shorts – Vinegar and Brown Paper (Boutique in Little Marlow) | Gold zip necklace – Marc Jacobs (you have seen me wear this before, again and again – the key to sustainable style is to repeat, repeat, repeat.)
These black Giamba Printed Honeycomb Macramé Shorts should remain at the top of your wishlist – though definitely pricey – as should the slightly more ‘accessibly priced’ Alphamoment’s shell shorts in white with their eye-catching thread embroidery, shells and seam-piping (just over £100). This BOSS Orange double layered white top freshens and softens the look, leaving change from £80 for a coffee, combining contemporary and luxury appeal, as does the Chelsea Flower double layered silk top (currently on sale through the Outnet for £88). This Helmut Lang Racerback Silk Tank is made from one of the most luscious silk charmeuse I have ever felt and can be picked up from Farfetch – a more luxury alternative in terms of price point – to Chelsea Flower lightweight option – both are timeless ‘finders keepers’ winner pieces.
Chelsea Flower are a NYC brand focused on using luxurious fabrics and quirky details to create pieces you connect with and want to keep forever. One of my most precious brands is Alphamoment (tell me that isn’t a dope brand name??!) right now, their entire ethos is in line with my way of shopping and each crafted item truly tells a story as the brand travel the world to find a variety of influences from African countries all the way across to my second home, California, in many cases using traditional artisanal techniques. My black silk top was from the little boutique in SLS Hotel.
