Accessories maketh a well dressed woman, or man. And why leave your pets out of the style saga?

Dress up

This is retro chic with an edge. The fall winter range comprises a bevy of dresses that reinterpret classic design, combining interesting lines, pleats and shapes. Luxurious fabrics like silk organza, jersey, satin, georgette and chiffon provide structured sharpness or ethereal wispiness. Detailing like sequin-work, twisted ribbons, appliqués, bows and delicate ostrich feathers are precious additions. Make space in your wardrobe.

Be sharp
Van Huesen Woman

The autumn winter 2009 collection is, in one word, plush. Confident, bold and sophisticated femininity rules, and chic minimalism wins over excess. Buttoned trenches, striped cardigans, tailored trousers, skinny pants, sweaters, shapely skirts and flattering blouses make your work wardrobe über desirable. Colours like purple, red, olive, chocolate and electric blue pump up the range’s work-to-evening flexibility. Stripes, graphic prints and complementing accessories add a bit of drama. Sport these.

Dazzling designs

Be blinded by the sparkle. The festive and bridal collections carry grandeur and resplendence to a different level. The Limited Edition Emeralds collection presents an array of green beauties sourced from Zambia and Columbia. The Mozambique collection combines rosewood and textured yellow gold. Gem Opaque has creations in white agate, while Darbaar takes us back in time with rubelites and jadaus. There are also delights from Araaish Jewellery by Mana Shetty. Rock on!
