Winter fashion on Mallorca

Shot on location at the Jardins de Alfabia - the perfect backdrop to our colourful fashion shoot

Soaked in the atmosphere of days gone by, Mallorca’s Jardins de Alfabia is a fitting backdrop for Autumn 2016’s Gardens of Paradise fashion shoot. Helen Cummins sourced whimsical pieces from Twinset to echo the romance of the 40’s; 60’s feel styles from Kidama to reflect the cool glamour of the 60’s, and 20’s-feel luxe from Rialto Living – finished with thoroughly modern 21st century attitude.

A journey through the sartorial highlights of the past century – in a 12th century Arabian paradise.

The new season arrives with high anticipation for the latest seasonal trends. Patterns in general are strong. Animal print is back on the catwalk and indeed the streets. Twin-set have created a funky yet elegant for their FW 2016 collection featuring feathers, their signature lace combined with soft wools. The pajama inspired daywear remains strong.

Get an instant update with Twin-sets laced-up flat boots worn with floaty long dresses or with feathered mini skirts. A high-neck ruffled blouse worn below a mid-length wrap dress is one fo the most popular looks for fall. Get an immediate update with a range of colourful glasses – there are lots of great shapes and sizes to suit your face. Check out the collection at Rialto Living.

Accessories are key. Big leather statement bags are arm candy. Kidama stocks Roberto Cavalli and we love the leather fringe bag in black or pink. Mix and match your patterns with confidence and add a feather or fake fur coat or sleeveless jacket to top the look.

Shop the best of the new seasons ‘must have’ pieces and put your fashion senses to work for AW 2016.
