HIGH SUMMER COLLECTION
Boutique brings effortless cool to the ‘80s trend
with its High Summer capsule. Driven by the essence
of the era – without the need to say it so loud – the
collection puts a modern, minimal spin on leather cowl
necks, mannish tailoring and ruffled trophy dresses.
Blocks of colour and one-shoulder straps bring
a hint of ‘80s glamour to Boutique’s pared-back
silhouettes. The mainstay colour here is navy,
accented with pastel hues of rose and lemon, and
clean, asymmetric hems.
IN THE DETAIL
The crisp white shirt is unequivocally cool.
This season, it comes updated with exaggerated
proportions and a navy silk pocket and cuffs, while
the classic navy shift is cinched in at the waist
with a wide, ring-detail belt.
Boutique transforms the cowl neck to luxury status
with supple primrose-yellow leather. Meanwhile,
the cold shoulder slip gains new levels of laid-back
sophistication, thanks to panels of navy silk
and tangerine lace.
FROM THE BOYS
Set aside your skinnies for trousers in mannish fits.
Loose grey slacks are given an injection of femininity
with baby pink shirting, while Boutique’s clean-cut
boyfriend jeans work best with the sharp lines
of a graphic tee.
THE RUFFLE IS BACK
The hero piece of the season? A tangerine funnel
dress made from the finest morocain silk, or the
subtly printed top in Pepto-Bismol pink. Both made
in Britain, asymmetric ruffles are key to these
designs, so keep styling simple with a clean block
heel or classic cut jeans.
