Spring into Summer with colour. Bounce into all the fabulous warm weather events with style. Carolyn de la Drapiere has a collection that will have your mouth watering! The most beautiful, luxurious Italian silks ever to hit our studio – sumptuous colours and designs that are all so irresistible and so well cut that you just wont be able to resist.
We have fabulous silk dresses for that truly special event, glorious cotton tops for that summer holiday, little quirky silk numbers for parties and great jackets and trousers for all the other events in between.
We love the colour and vibrancy of Spring and Summer 2014. The opulent blues that mirror a perfect summer sky is the colour that is clearly a winner this year and on the top of everyone’s list. And the prints – delicious, delectable prints that are so pretty, they leave you gasping for more.
Our fabrics this year are the lightest, silkiest silks ever, so floaty and delicate they wrap about the body with the softness of a cobweb. Silk is slimming, for it drapes over the curves without interruption, especially when lined in yet another luxurious layer of silk. Silk aficionados know the slimming qualities of a luxurious silk, and if possible wear very little else. They also know that a good quality silk is cool in the summer and not in the least hot for it breathes and does not over heat the body.
A fabulous, well cut outfit enhances the curvy woman’s figure, for it accentuates the best points and subtly covers the rest. We ensure all our clothes maximise our finest features – a glorious neckline, wonderful cleavage and nipped in waist if possible. The hips and tummy are cleverly covered with ample fabric that does not pull or bulge in the wrong places – and double layers of fabric are used in most of our dresses to give that extra level of drape and fall that skims and smooths over the body in a sumptuous manner.
Our new collection features a bigger choice than ever of our most popular wrap over dresses, both in the finest of silks and in our top quality jersey which is always made with two layers of fabric to give the beautiful line we are known for and which look good on sizes up to 28. If you have never tried a wrap we encourage you to do so as they are super flattering on curvy girls of all shapes and sizes.
Have a fabulous Spring and Summer and looking forward to seeing as many of you as possible in the studio over the coming months for custom made outfits for all the upcoming events that will soon be coming our way!
Lots of Love Carolyn xx
