La Bottega di Brunella from Positano in Italy comes very much into its own each summer. The home-woven fabrics in natural fibres are expertly cut and piece dyed, this time in the most beautiful heather and moss tones, producing a look of effortless elegance and understated cool for the warmer days.

Nook, like Brunella, is very much on the map as a positive fashion statement for the fuller figure. This relatively new to us German label has certainly made its mark with its wholesome ferve and style. We love it. Mama-b also is still tearing away in the everyday separates stakes. Easy jersey dressing in simple designs, cut the Italian way, are staples for work, for holidays or just life!

Mes Soeurs et Moi from Belgium is our all round affordable, every day collection of well made pieces in carefully chosen fabrics. Here are comfortable yet still quirky clothes with something of interest for everyone. This season’s shade card includes lime, denim, pebble and geranium pink. Zyga, from Paris, is not short on summer coats, day dresses and coordinates at a good price point and in cotton and linen to face the sticky days. Nicely done in jade and navy, coral and cobalt.
