  • Here's why it's worth investing in a nice kaftan...

    ‘Why bother to invest in a posh kaftan?’ you might be asking yourself at this point. The answer? Because they’re timeless, they’re easy to throw on and they’ll elevate your vacation wardrobe way more than a scraggy old beach t-shirt ever could. Oh, and perhaps most importantly, they’ll make your holiday pictures look better than anyone else’s on Instagram…

    Behold the new labels to love this summer:

    Pippa Holt Kaftans
    Hand-woven in a remote Mexican village, these perfectly patterned designs (above) have caught the eye of fashion’s biggest retailers, including Net-A-Porter and Matchesfashion.com. Founded by former Vogue editor Pippa Holt, you can guarantee easy-breeziness, quality, and that no one else on the beach will have anything similar.

    We Are Leone
    After something lighter than a classic cotton kaftan? We Are Leone’s luxe silk robes are the ideal throw-on after a day by the pool, and come in dozens of stunning patterns.

    Dodo Bar Or
    Looking for a blooming and beautiful beach blouse? Look no further than Dodo Bar Or, the fashion insider’s favourite easy summer label. Our pick is their 100% silk minidress, trimmed with mini monochrome pom poms.
    Sleepy Jones
    The minimalist’s choice, Sleepy Jones say that summer dressing doesn’t always have to be about lashings of colour and embellishment. Team their cool pinstripe kaftan with classic leather sandals and straw Panama hat.
    Muzungu Sisters
    You might recognise this label’s name as their pom pom sandals and embellished raffia beach bags have already become sell-out hits for the summer. But did you know the Muzungu Sisters also make colourful kaftans? What better way to complete your holiday look, we say?
