The Magic Word of Summer: Kaftan

Sea destination? Don't forget this summers star item: with a boho soul, the kaftan will be your holiday wardrobe staple! 

Wear them in the morning to go to the beach, perfect for lunch at your favourite seaside restaurant, but also for the afternoon shopping and of course ideal for an evening cocktail and the beach party when the sun goes down. 

In short, with a Kaftan you will never be out of place.

To transform it from a day garment to a dress for the evening, just add some eccentric jewellery and replace the woven maxi bag with a smaller one (pick out a straw one making it perfect 24/7 at the seaside and in the city) or with a jewelled or satin purse perfect for dancing under the stars. 


Brigitte Bardot and Grace of Monaco wore them on their dream holidays, timeless icons that are always a great inspiration. From Saint Tropez to Monte Carlo, their photographs from the sixties and seventies helped to create that holiday aesthetic that still influences the style of many designers today.
