The great escape and new utility
Witchery’s September collection is charged with a fresh energy, ready for the transitional weather period and pending longer days. Layers become lighter, hemlines shorter and fabrics turn to natural fibres like cotton, linen and silk for a more pragmatic approach to the trans-seasonal shift.
THE GREAT ESCAPE
The start of the month sees the emergence of new cuts and silhouettes-elongated pleat shorts, a relaxed belted blazer, wide leg culottes and fluid wrap dresses and tops crafted in a clean and classic nautical colour combination. A navy and white awning stripe on relaxed tops and dresses creates new pattern interest and a carefree spirit that casts minds to days spent by the ocean, despite having its place in urban or work settings.
Silver accessory accents and bold separates add flare to occasion and day dressing. Knot feature heeled mules are the perfect everyday silver accent, while a lustrous satin V-neck tank and midi slip skirt worn together take on the metallic trend to convey true luxury for event outfitting.
Off setting the tough luxesensibility is a bold botanical pattern of mint green and pale pink with khaki accents. A printed drape dress, peasant style blouse and a fluid cropped, wide leg pant make the ultimate statement pieces for urban or work surroundings. Footwear sees an influx of open toe sandals with barely-there strap work in tan leather, khaki and blush-gold, while traditional espadrilles step back into the spotlight as the sun-seeker’s shoe of choice. Woven leather evokes a far-flung charm in bowler bags, pouches and waist-defining belts. Soft gold tortoiseshell hoops provide the ultimate adornment for everyday glamour appeal.
The September collection is a careful consideration of the Witchery woman’s lifestyle. Curated to be worn across occasions, locations and even seasons, September channels utilitarian dressing in nautical and military inspired designs with the upmost style and sophistication.
