Sometimes, it's okay to forget the fancy frills, dizzy prints and crystals and just get back to the basics of good clothing. This is what Australian brand Keepsake are best known for. Creating flattering, figure-loving silhouettes enhanced by origami folds, sharp angles and structured peplum waists. Colouring in the Summer of 2014 are sweeps of petal pink, teal and turquoise, black, white, lemon and ice with hot flashes of cerise.
Taking inspiration from the couture runways, Keepsake divides the price but doubles the style, with modern and graceful looks that can be worn from day to night events. This summery season, we have the grandest picks from pleated mini and maxi dresses, flirtatious little playsuits, tulip skirts and unusual netted necklines. Cut-outs and sheer details zig-zag their way through this innovative range, keeping up with designer trends. Expert pattern-cutting can be seen in intricate three-fold peplums and strong geometric shapes.
Hopefully the South African sun can be coaxed to come out at the sight of this beguiling Spring/Summer collection.
