Spotlight on: A ‘70s Story

Author Editor - 2 minute read
We don’t know if you’ve heard, but we’re celebrating our 50th birthday this month, and in doing so we’re taking it back to where it all began with the revival of retro prints and matching co-ord sets.

Bright, bold and nostalgic, let’s take a step back in time and channel a ‘70s state of mind by shining a spotlight on our new collection…


THINK PRINT

Francine dresses

The ‘70s. We’re talking loud prints, colour and style, making our Francine dresses wardrobe triple threats. Two contrasting floral prints with flair come together to form these playful dresses. It’s not just the vibrant prints that make these styles divine, we’re captivated by the details too. From the leg split led to by our Francine Recycled Verona Midi Dress’ asymmetric design to the smocked long sleeves and skater skirt of our Francine Verona Drape Mini Dress, there’s no doubt that these button-down beauties are ‘70s trendsetters.


IT'S A MATCH

Nothing says put-together like a complimenting co-ordinate and well, we’ve got yours. The ’70s print trend continues into our new matching separates, ready to add a fun yet chic edge both worn together or apart. The subtle flared fit of our Veena Jersey Trousers pair perfectly with the long split sleeves of our Veena Jersey Jacket. A loud and proud pair which we can’t get enough of, to be worn at the desk, out to dinner and on the dancefloor.


FLOWER POWER

Florals may never go out of fashion, but ‘70s inspired fashion is a power move. Vibrant flowers flourish across our Rebeca Astrida Eco Meadow Jersey Top, with a fabulously flattering ruched chest, whilst you won’t be able to resist adding a swing to your step in our Arabelle Delphine Culotte Trousers. A nod to nature and ‘70s nostalgia, these styles will blossom in your wardrobe.
 


DOPAMINE HUE

’70s fashion wasn’t just about the prints, our new collection also sought inspiration from the mood-boosting colour palette of ‘the “Me” decade’. Take a note from the ‘70s and brighten your day with a shade that’s not one to shy away, with our Anika Recycled Crepe Ruffle Top also tapping into old-school romance with romantic ruffles framing its button-down fastening. And be prepared for compliments in our Patty Drape Full Zip Pocket Mini Dress, an attention-grabber from every angle with its smooth and chic silhouette sporting practical pockets and fastened with an exposed full-length back zip.


KNITTED NOSTALGIA

Don’t hesitate in vamping up your knitwear collection with a ‘70s vibe. A peter pan collar makes our Maxeen Knitted Shirt the perfect choice, partnered with contrasting trim for a classic-meets-contemporary style, whilst the retro space dye is also ready for a revival and we’re gravitating towards our Maly Space Dye Cardigan. A sweet, soft and Seventies inspired fashion confirming that ‘70s style has always been out-of-this-world.
