Sheer Genius or Sheer Madness?

From sheer and simple , to sheer and short, to sheer bling and sheer beauty, there is no escaping the sheer trend this Spring. New in this week is a collection of diaphanous oversized, two tone cashmere shawls to fit the Spring Sheer bill.

Sheer Genius or Sheer Madness?

This summer’s trend for ‘sheer’ covers the spectrum from demure to outrageous and everywhere you look fashionistas are bearing all. From sheer and simple , to sheer and short, to sheer bling and sheer beauty, there is no escaping the sheer ‘veil’ dress. The eponymous veil, which used to cover the head, has dropped a few feet and, chameleon-like is reborn as the leg veil.

If your preference is as a spectator to this fashion and you feel it’s a veil too far for mere mortals, but you still crave a gossamer light touch this summer, then we have just the thing. Envelop yourself in a diaphanous oversized featherlight sheer shawl. Wispy, weightless and wonderful they are dip-dyed, measure 2.6 metres x 1metre and you can choose from four exquisite colour combinations. 

Pick Sapphire to Indigo to add a dramatic accent to this season’s penchant for white.
