Colour is all-important with a gorgeous softened palette of delicious citrus, apple,
                                                lemon,mimosa, dusty peach and old rose. Richer shades of mango, raspberry and 
                                                sage are added for weekend pieces, alongside vibrant summer bright turquoise and 
                                                hot pink with white. 



                                                             


                                
                                                   

                                                 
Beautiful natural fabrics are always important in our summer collections and we’ve 
                                                        found a special cotton-rich Italian jacquard for our stunning occasion-wear perfectly 
                                                        tailored longline jacket and matching shift dress. Ideal for a stylish summer wedding
                                                        both can be worn   separately for a smart, less formal look: the jacket with white jeans
                                                        and jersey top, the Dress with a toning cardigan or bolero, making them
                                                        super-versatile.




                                                                                             


                                                   


                                     Linen is a summer staple we know and love. When it comes to staying cooling in the
                                               heat it really can’t be beaten: it’s highly breathable, much more so than cotton, due
                                               to its comparatively lower thread count. I particularly like the new washed linen
                                               fabric we have sourced with it’s soft, slightly ‘worn’ feel and used in our flattering 
                                               tunic dress, an eminently useful, relaxed look for a warm summer day, and the 
                                               pull-on cropped trousers, great for holidays.

                                               Dresses worn over trousers are a big fashion trend this season and the tunic Dress 
                                               in a slightly smarter linen and lively print would look great layered over slim white
                                               jeans, while the sleeveless striped linen dress is elegant and versatile for any
                                               occasion. An essential must-have item this summer is the A-line skirt in a new linen 
                                               blend and with a touch of stretch it keeps its shape. Wear with a neat top or tucked 
                                               in shirt for fashion’s favoured current look.

                                                The ramie tunic is a timeless silhouette with contrast embellishment, flattering 
                                                bracelet length sleeves, and destined to become an enduring summer favourite.



                                                                      


                                         

                                     
Inspired by the catwalks floral prints continue to evolve. From Rococo-style
                                                jacquard florals with ruffles and raw hems at Marques’Almeida to subdued,
                                                blousy '70s bopuets at Chloe, and neon carnations at Balenciaga, there is nothing
                                                average or 'ditsy' about these. The new season florals are bold, dramatic, oversized 
                                                and make a real style statement. My favourites include a true ‘garden party’ dress
                                                in soft blues; the Italian Printed Maxi Dress, in a subtle floral print, for glamorous
                                                summer evenings; the stunning Placement Floral Print Tunic, and a knock-out 
                                                dress in a sophisticated over-scaled blooming placement print.


                                                                                     


                                                     


                                             Our ‘wear forever’ pieces, the reworked classics, are as strong as ever and
                                             continue to offer unbeatable value and style. They epitomize the Artigiano 
                                             look and include:

                                         - The stretch wool blazer, a go-to layering piece and an absolute must in the
                                           
season’s favourite new colour of soft rose pink. Throw on over jeans and
                                            a t-shirt for casual wear, over a dress for something smarter, or wear with 
                                            matching trousers for a sleek trouser suit look in chic head-to-toe pink

                                         - White jeans are officially back on the fashion map and will work with pretty
                                            much anything in your current wardrobe. Dress up with a smart jacket, down
                                            with a tee or simple top for an easy, pared-back weekend look, or combine
                                            cropped white jeans with a longer-length floral top and some strappy sandals 
                                            for slick off-duty wear.

                                         - The perfect shift dress, re-interpreted in a stunning ‘painterly’ abstract print, 
                                            inspired by Italian designers, is an investment buy with its body shaping 
                                            properties that slim and smooth in all the right places.

                                         - Wrap dresses are so flattering and designers are continually revisiting and
                                            reinvigorating this one item that makes all women feel good. Our signature
                                            jersey dresses are updated this season in fabulous new plain colours or a lovely
                                            splashy floral print, with shorter sleeves, a soft flared skirt, and adjustable
                                            ties for the perfect fit.



                                                                          

                                            For those all-important finishing touches, gorgeous new accessories add a
                                              stylish and contemporary accent to this summer’s dressing with glamorous 
                                              Jewelled Suede Pumps,glossy Patent Leather Cork Wedges and the perfect
                                              bag for holidaying or day trips.
