The colour choice of this collection contains of a lot of pieces kept in lemon yellow and lavender. Additionally, khaki is repeatedly used- often in creations that have a quite sporty yet elegant approach. The cuts of this collection are enduringly flattering the female silhouette- a wide variety of cuts is applied. Both figure- accentuating and rather loose cuts can be recognized. Safari- and camouflage- inspired dresses evoke you to your next urban adventure. Strong shoulders round off the overall image of an incredibly tough woman. The detail- awareness of this collection definitely deserves devotion- ruffles, smock, ruching, slits- we name it, #Hardtoget implies it all. When observing these charming creations clearly, you will notice they are often focused on shoulders, collars, legs and sleeves- that way, you can underline your favourite body part. The pattern choice rounds off the versatile character of these outfits, it contains of zigzag, camouflage, chevron and squares. Simply smooth!
In addition to these lavish looks, eye- catching hats, big sunglasses and sparkling ankle boots and sandals complete these outstanding outfits. The make- up is worn focused on the eyes, in iridescent metallic hues. The hair is worn in wet look optics. #Hardtoget can be understood as an ode to empowering women by celebrating their strengths and versatile characters.
