when we decided to venture into the print realm this season, there was only one choice - leopard all the way...
leopard print has stood the fashion test-of-time and the list of fashionable icons who have embraced leopard is endless. from kate moss and anna wintour to dita von teese and jackie kennedy.
diana vreeland once said “Ive never met a leopard print I didn't like” and we definitely concur.
and leopard print, of course, has its own claim to the rock’n’roll hall of fame with prince, kurt cobain and blondie all embracing their wild side in leopard pants, dresses, coats and scarves.
as you've probably guessed, here at byfreer, we've added our own original twist, with our original leopard print design mixed back with classic grey marle cotton jersey as trim on our silk georgette leopard tees. we’ve also added leopard silk crepe de chine pants into the mix.
lesley says “one of my favourite colour combinations is grey and caramel. I’ve loved that combo for years and it looks perfect in this top that’s so easy to wear.”
a byfreer trademark is our unexpected detailing and the juxtaposition of different fabrics and textures. now we’re mixing it up with leopard. says lesley “leopard never really goes out of style - its always there bubbling away and I do agree with style maven jenna lyons (j crew, project runway) who once declared that leopard is a neutral.”
permission to mix it up ladies!
when its too hot for a woollen jumper and too cold for a tee shirt, it’s french terry to the rescue! this natural, breathable fabric with a soft touch keeps you warm without making you too hot. and in warmer weather, french terry feels smooth and cool against the skin.
the result is an absorbent, light-weight, moisture-wicking material that’s super comfortable to wear any day of the year.
french terry available in khaki, dusty pink, white, grey.
in addition to silks, now we are offering the basic tee in VELVET an unexpected fabric that immediately feels and looks luxe.
iridescent colours offered include blue, green, white and black.
styles include a round or V- neck, short or longer raglan sleeve.
