We’re living for the Old Khaki’s SS18 collection. The South African brand is bringing Cuban vibes this Summer. A beautiful infusion of old Cuba and tropical summer – very ‘buena vista’. The collection brings summer vibes, think millennial pink, summer berries, yellows, olive green and shades with a dark base accentuated by vibrant prints.
“Picture dark jumpsuits, worn on their own or offset with a fresh white T-shirt underneath, or shadow-patched, mid-wash skinny jeans or bright blue stretch jeggings teamed with a loose off-the-shoulder top. Pair culottes with comfortable sneakers or sandals,” says Old Khaki’s womenswear buyer, Dalene Gourley. “Our new range of embroidered, off-the-shoulder dresses is just right for easy-wearing on a hot summer night, and then there are our fabulous kimonos, perfect for slipping into after a day at the beach – a first for Old Khaki.”
You know nice shorts and dresses will provide cool relief on a hot day. This feminine, playful attention to detail is carried through in the raffia pompoms on their sun hats and the tasselled accessories and scarves.
For the first time, Old Khaki is offering women a choice between sun hats and caps with floral detailing. How awesome.
The Cuban theme is also in the menswear range. Unlike the womenswear, it has more graphic and tropical prints. In terms of the colours, there’s a lovely combination of millennial pink and summer berries with olive green and charcoal, or yellow with navy and olive.
Let’s Talk Shoes!
For women, there is a great variety of sandals featuring lace-ups, gladiators, sliders and espadrilles – summer’s quintessential slip-on-and-step-out shoe. More sturdy, but no less stylish, are their sneakers that include options in tan, grey, navy and pops of olive green to echo the season’s fashion colours.
Sneakers make up a big part of the men’s footwear range, too, with a choice of blue, grey, olive or black. In addition, staples such as Caterpillars are back on the shelves, as are wrap sandals, thongs and fisherman sandals.
