Summer elegance from DAKS

I wanted to write about Daks Spring 2012 collection ever since I saw it, but talking summer and seaside during cold rainy months felt a bit wrong. It seems that the waiting game isn’t going to be in my favour because the stubborn rain keeps coming back (oh, the unpredictable island-based live we live!), so it’s a now or never time for dreaming of nautical elegance, summer glamour, carefree chic and a few investment pieces.

When compared to many other Spring/Summer 2012 collection out there, Daks didn’t exactly jump out or get crowds talking about it. But then Daks isn’t meant to be worn by crowds but rather women who crave timeless beauty and want to look quietly expensive and comfortable at the same time.

I’ve been in love with their dresses, shirts and long skirts for months now. I can easily picture myself wearing them all the time for years and years, with flat sandals or wedges and a straw bag or leather tote during a day and gladiators and an i-can-fit-in-a-palm-of-your-hand clutch for the evening. Plus a pair of sunglasses and an optional hat.

What do you think?

  1. When I saw the first look I actually thought Dior! Really nice clean looks though, I think resort-wear straight away

  2. Yes, let's dream about summer! These pieces are so chic. You are right that Daks may be more low profile compared to other labels, but it is the essence of classic British elegance. I went through the pictures to decide which looks I like the most and turns out I would love them all!

  3. An inspiration for wearing stripes and checks and elegant summer attire. And the round red bag is the perfect accessory. :)

  5. Hello my sweet - are you checking your messages?? :-D

    That is a stunning and classic collection. First the basic but fabulous heels catched my attention - followed to the perfect colors navy blue & white. A very maritime collection, isn't it. Actually we had more rainy days here in this area as in the area you're living (within last year). Hard to believe, isn't it. We're just waiting for summer to arrive to wear all those pretty things.
    Some of the dresses and cuts remind me of Bottega Veneta here and there. All looks are really adorable. I didn't pay attention to this collection and designer before. Thank you so much for introducing me to a new find here! :)
