Laid-back Elegance: a Delectable Duet

 Perhaps "laid back" and "elegance"
don't at first appear to be a natural duet.
But have a look at this beautiful collection 
from the young Sydney label
AmberJules
and you may be tempted to think again.

Using a restricted colour palette of grey, ivory, beige & blue,
the pieces are intended to be classical,
neither in nor out of seasonal trends. 
Natural fibres, of cotton, silk, merino wool & cashmere,
give the clothes an easy grace & drape.
Which is where the "laid-back elegance" comes in.
An understated luxury garment.
Simplicity of cut puts the emphasis back on the quality of the fabric.
 And makes these clothes so very timeless.
Even though they have a contemporary ambience.
This dress has it all - the organic feel of natural fibres,
+ the elegance of clever draping & simple detailing. 
 The brand designs for children too,
using the same philosophy.


 So is
 laid-back elegance 
a Delectable Duet?
In the case of AmberJules,
oh yes, I think so!
