Look from WE-AR’s new Wayside SS18/19 collection. Image supplied.
WE-AR‘s delightful new Spring/Summer 2018/19 collection is out now and it’s a beautiful tribute to Andalusia. Called WΔYSIDE, the collection was inspired by the luscious scenery and wonderful people of the Spanish region. The burnt hills, ancient twisting olive trees, plentiful wildflowers and gorgeous villages truly captured the imagination of WE-AR’s designer and founder Jyoti Morningstar who has infused the collection with a laid-back Spanish feel.
Among the key pieces of this collection are the Artista linen overalls which the designer feels ‘call the ingénue to stretch out a fresh canvas and lean into her creative longing’. That artistic feel is continued with the Painter’s smock dress which has large pockets to hold brushes and curiosities. A flourish of wild poppies adorn the silk of the Sutra shirt and can also be found on charming scarves and sash belts. Another favourite piece is the high-waisted Pom Pants in stonewashed organic cotton that cinch in at the waist and roll up at the ankles for maximum comfort and ease of wear.
WE-AR have refined hemp and linen for their winsome Riviera Jumpsuit and shorts in stellar stripes that are a fantastic pairing with the Summer Trench. Playful touches like the Rara Skirt and Shakti Flair Tank make this a fun and inviting collection for the warmer month. The natural beauty of the spring/summer season is reflected in the lovely colour palette of olive, pink, marigold and blue teamed with neutrals of black, white and grey. WE-AR’s use of soft to the touch and delightful to wear fabrics includes cashmere blended with linen, silk and cotton.
WΔYSIDE is available at WE-AR stockists and online now.
