Orient Express

Sumptuous silk. Embroidered blossom, birds and tigers. Martial arts-inspired tailoring. The richest shades of red, pink, green and blue. What do all of these things have in common? Together, they form one of the most beautiful trends of the season - the orient.

One of the reasons we love this trend so much is that it works with pretty much every style. If you favour crisp, tailored fabrics for a really well put together look, you’ll adore the shirts and jackets in neutral shades with karate-style obi belts to nip you in at the waist; team with trousers and heels for an office outfit to die for. If you’re more of a sports-chic kinda gal, then the gorgeous printed bomber jackets (wear with this season’s ubiquitous block colour hoody underneath for added street cred) and silk strapped pool slides will be more up your street. And if you’re all about laid-back jeans, a white tee and loafers, just sling an actual silk robe over your outfit to be bang on trend without even making an effort.

When it comes to accessories, shoes can be sky high or super flat and everything in-between (great news all round!), and bags come in quilted satin as crossbodies or rucksacks. So there really is something for everyone.

The bag
The style of bag doesn’t matter here - rucksack, clutch or ladylike handbag - just make sure it’s made from a beautiful printed fabric spattered with birds and blossoms in bright pigments, like ‘Plum’. Then, pick one of the print’s key colours and clash the rest of your outfit with another print or stripes in the same shade.

The flats
Even the humble pool slide is getting in on the orient act this season. Made from pretty silk straps that look like obi belts, like the sash on a kimono, these are best worn with wide leg trousers for a laid-back, louche look.

The platforms
A straight-off-the-catwalk vibe, give any outfit some oomph with these mega-platforms. With shoes this amazing, keep the rest of your outfit to muted tones and let the shoes do the talking.
