CF'S Monthly Fashion Round Up: August 2022

It’s time to plan your sartorial calendar, aided by August’s dose of the CF monthly fashion round-up.

Everything you need for the final days of summer and beyond. Happy scrolling…


THE SUPERBRANDS

We’re quick to spot a steal and THE OUTNET’s selection of the most coveted designers from Victoria Beckham to Zimmermann has our credit cards at the ready. With investment pieces up to 70% off, your new season wardrobe will reign supreme and at a fraction of the cost. Snap up Zimmermann’s belted twill trench coat for 50% less and wear now and forever.

THE FREE-SPIRITED DRESS

Kalita Al Swaidi’s luxury resortwear is inspired by glamorous, light-packing 60’s icons. After a trip to Greece saw her experience women in free-flowing dresses rather than the structured summer looks she had packed, KALITA was born with a bohemian spirit at its core. Her show-stopping silhouettes ooze a sense of freedom and this halter neck dress has us booking our next trip. Wear for glamorous sunset cocktails with gold strappy sandals.

THE GROWN-UP MINI BAG

Luxury Belgian leather-goods brand Delvaux was founded nearly 200 years ago and is still making history today with its artisanal bags. The Pin Mini Bucket Airess offers an exceptionally light and breezy interpretation of the original model thanks to a series of decorative perforations. Let the modern, mini silhouette take you from day to night. 

THE MULTI-FACTED JEWELS

London-based jewellery designer Noor Fares is renowned for her colourful modern-day talismans that combine ancient symbolism and contemporary style. Inspired by her world travels and rich Lebanese heritage, her latest collection PRISMA looks to the power of optical illusion and magical multidimensional realities. Her Twilight ring would make a striking statement for sophisticated occasion dressing.

THE NAME TO KNOW

New to NET-A-PORTER and part of its NET SUSTAIN offering, ESSE Studios was founded with one goal in mind – to elevate and simplify your wardrobe. The brand’s mindful approach results in high-quality basics that are timeless and built to last. You’ll want wear this cut-out maxi dress on repeat.

THE COW-BOY BOOTS

They’re trending amongst the style set and are a match made in heaven for festival dressing, but you can transition them into Autumn too. Reformation’s latest footwear drop features authentic western boots in two styles, the mid-calf boot and the ankle boot, made in Brazil using sustainable practices. Pair with a midi dress and trench coat when the temperates drop.

THE LUXE LOUNGEWEAR

Luxe loungewear could be the one thing lingering on post pandemic. Enter Maison Essentiele, an Australian label offering luxury essentials inspired by the glamour of vintage lingerie. Made from 100% silk, simplicity is at the essence of Essentiele with sleepwear and lounge pieces chic enough to be worn out of the bedroom too. We’ll be wearing these silk trousers with a white tank top and sneakers when travelling.

THE COOL-COLLAB

After a successful menswear collaboration last year, REISS has launched its second activewear collection with innovative British sportswear brand CASTORE debuting a womenswear capsule engineered for modern living. The 16 piece collection boasts a fresh colour palette and premium fabrics that’ll take your activewear to new heights, and with a hybrid of functional designs and REISS’s timeless aesthetic, these elevated essentials will serve you post workout too.
