your wardrobe, whether you are going away or staying at home. There is nothing we
love more at Artigiano than summer season trends. Embracing a whole new collection
of styles and shapes for warmer weather feels great, and there are some fantastic
new Looks to entice you. Our key Looks include:
ideal for holidays. The peasant blouse is a big trend and now the sun has made an appearance it
may be the time to invest. With designers from Lanvin to Etro leading the way, the look is pretty
and flattering. Our Version in soft washed linen in three gorgeous shades is light and easy wear,
perfect paired with jeans and heels, or cool linen trousers, sandals and your favourite sunglasses for
the beach. The Italian Printed Cotton Voile Tunic has a similar sophisticated folkloric look, just
suited to hot weather.
For a stylish getaway don't forget to pack a selection of the beautiful looks in our signature Linen
Jersey collection. This summer we've added a great throw-on dress in soft spice, a good holiday
staple, while the ever-popular layering twinset now comes in a soft smudgy pastel print, as well as
the classic version or with a delicate cotton lace trim hem. Ideal for a beach retreat or city escape,
the soft, drape-y, breathable fabric is easy to wear and a flattering cut.
Romantic fabrics and detail were seen all over the recent catwalks and continue to inspire
designers. Alberta Ferretti, Dior, Burberry Prorsum and Balenciaga all showed delicious versions.
This season cotton Broderie Anglaise is the perfect summer interpretation, pretty and soft next to
the skin. Our super-smart dress and jacket is a modern take on a classic look in a new fashion
colour, pomegranate, a rich spicy red.
The cotton embroidered front t-shirt is a great summer basic and essential holiday wear. Versatile
and feminine, it can be worn with almost anything in your wardrobe, from jeans to a skirt, for day
and relaxed evenings.
Cut-work and scalloped trim bring a striking new look to the classic shell top and the embroidered
Cotton Voile Blouse is another unbeatable summer essential that can be dressed up or down.
We absolutely love shirt dresses at Artigiano and we have several exciting new versions this
season. As shirt dresses are essentially long versions of a shirt, they are as classic and wearable as
they come. In past seasons, designers have explored modern-day takes on shirting with
contemporary cuts, but Spring/Summer 2016, they have turned their attention to its longer
counterpart. At Boss, for example, designer Jason Wu gave it a feminine flair, while Phillip Lim
gathered, twisted, and knotted his versions for a slashed cut-out, cool effect and Narciso Rodriguez
sent out a crisp shirt dress, belted, martial arts-style.
Our take on the look includes The Broderie Anglaise Shirt Dress, which is feminine and pretty, the sleeveless Gingham Check Shirt Dress, fresh and contemporary in a soft apricot, and the collarless
washed linen version which has a safari feel when worn with a plaited leather belt and flat sandals.
The chic effortless Italian look is a constant inspiration and nowhere more evident this season than
in our new elegant evening styles, perfect for sultry summer nights. What could be more glamorous
than the Limited Edition Italian Jumpsuit. An easy statement 'all-in-one' in updated animal print,
it would look fabulous with metallic accessories and a tan.
Or the subtly sparkling Italian Sequin Knit, a flattering tunic perfect with white jeans or trousers,
for a smart, relaxed look.
Right on trend is the Printed Maxi Dress another favourite piece for holiday evenings and the 'go to'
dress this summer. The matching crochet-look bolero is a stylish cover up or you can mix and
match with one of our linen cardigans.
