What Poetry has in-store for summer

Yesterday I attended the launch of the Poetry ss2017 collection of clothing, footwear and home wear. They have got it so right, encapsulating all the feels of this season through the celebration of “new growth”.

The launch was like walking into a neglected meadow – a bombardment of greenery, blossoms and a sense of calm.

“As days get hotter and we enter high summer, we increasingly want clothes that are comfortable, feminine and above all effortless,” said Mari Lochner, Poetry Buyer. “We also noted the growing resistance to previous seasons’ focus on fast fashion and heeded shoppers’ demand for quality items and classic cuts that will last for many seasons to come.”

The entire spring/summer offering will be available in Poetry stores and at www.poetrystores.co.za from this month.

I got creative with nature too, designing my own arrangement of beautiful, wild greenery all in the theme of summer and new life…

we’re loving autumn/winter at poetry

We’re back from our holiday – from sunshine and beach weather to cold, blustery rainy days. At least we have the Poetry autumn/winter collection to look forward to, in stores from Friday 🙂

This season, expect a few pieces in cashmere and silk, plus details such as pleats, lace, quilting and embroidery. We love the pared down neutrals with the pops of colour too.

summer 2014 at old khaki and poetry

Old Khaki and Poetry revealed their s/s 2014 collection last week.

There are some really gorgeous pieces to add to your summer wardrobe. Old Khaki stuck to their easy-to-wear, boho stalwarts with a strong sports-inspired theme coming through, divine! Like the below silk, floral bomber that we just love.

Poetry’s summer is made up of graphic prints, stripes and feminine florals all in their trademark flowing lines and wearable separates. Happy browsing!

Afterwards we went to the Woodstock Exchange to catch up on some work. This was our office for a few hours.

nice knits

We are delighted that the sunshine is back, we weren’t quite ready for all that rain just yet. But it did get us thinking about our winter wardrobes, hence Emily’s post yesterday. We always seem to wake up late when it comes to transitional season dressing – it just doesn’t feel right buying thick, woolly jerseys when you’re dressed in a summer frock and dying of heat. But we’re actually quite excited to get our paws on this season’s new knitwear. There seems to be a lot more variety… colours, polka-dots, textures, ribbing, quilting, prints.

These are just some of the beautiful knits available at Poetry and Old Khaki this season.
