Make A French Connection This Spring

This season we think beyond (albeit pretty) florals and juxtapose the clean lines and crisp colours of classic Gallic style with the tactility and embellishment of bohemian luxe. Easy separates in simple shapes add structure and versatility.

Dresses are fitted yet not constricting, enhancing the feminine shape without cloying. Fabrics are natural, draped softly on the silhouette and serve to create comfort of wear as the days warm. Cliché is avoided with careful additions of accessories using materials recalling the carefree spring holidays of our childhood: raffia, cork, beading, wood and straw.

The gentleman updates his look with subtle touches of sixties surf culture, beaded and leather bracelets, an impeccable new hat and classic footwear in soft powdery blues, navy and ever-true tan. This is the esprit, the sartorial essence of our Noosa. This is Spring 2019.

Simple lines of figure-flattering swimwear in the colours of the Tricolore are coupled with softly draped enhancement. Whisper thin cotton voile coverups catch the Spring breezes while bespoke statement jewellery adds a tasteful dose of poolside glamour. Pristine white sneakers accessorise ably whilst striking sunglasses are de rigueur.

Dine in easy elegance. Pale tones of white, cream and aqua set the tone for a seafood luncheon. White linen trousers and thoughtfully reworked espadrilles bring a new freshness. For the ladies, beaded and embellished adornments refine and add sparkle.

Feather-light gossamer silk in the palest blue hue supports a spectacular marrying of luxurious jewellery. He reclines in a faultlessly cut collarless shirt in perfect white linen and French navy flat fronted trousers. An enchanted evening begins.
