This season’s fleeting fashion stretches the sartorial spectrum


Crochet has re-entered the fashion stratosphere just in time for warm days and balmy nights. Celebrate by slipping on a crochet something next time you hit the markets, town or your local wine bar.

How to wear:

Channel your inner Greek goddess by styling crochet clothing with a silk bandana, a pair of sling-back heels and a basket bag. Don’t forget the ultimate summer accessory: an Aperol Spritz.

Why you need it:

Crochet-clad models walked at the NYFW23 Proenza Schouler show, and global street style continues to demonstrate that the boho fashion is super versatile. A crochet cover-up, dress or set is a must-have in every ‘it girl’ summer wardrobe.

Our pick

Our love affair with SA’s Significant Other runs deep, and the Capella Dress has won our hearts (and a permanent place in our wardrobes). Slow fashion Australian label She Made Me has also rekindled our desire to dress head-to-toe in crochet. The Sana dress is a stunning collation of more than 350 crochet flowers hand-stitched together – making it the perfect summer mini.

Pink PP  

Celebrities and haute couture catwalks are clad in the colour designed in collaboration between Valentino’s Pierpaolo Piccioli and Pantone. P.P Pink is here to stay, set to brighten your springtime fashion and infiltrate wardrobes worldwide.

How to Wear

Mix and match neutral shades with pops of bright pink for a paired-back look. For the bold, dress head-to-toe in the saturated sartorial style. Channel the confidence of Elle Woods in Legally Blonde and the trending ‘Barbiecore’ aesthetic when wearing similar shades to P.P Pink. 

Why you need one 

Margot Robbie’s latest live-action Barbie film has us embracing the styles we dressed our childhood companions in – with a little more sophistication than spunk.
