How silken fabrics feel against the skin, how styles move around the body became the starting point for Serena Bute’s pre-fall 20 collection. In sync with fashion’s languorous, nonchalant mood Bute has subtly shifted shapes refreshing the palette and recalibrating the signature sartorial details that blend the masculine with the utterly feminine.Shop Collection
VERSATILITYThe focus is on breezy trans seasonal pieces that can pack up small but deliver with impact. Items including the button through shirtdress, the bias cut slip skirt and the new slim Serena shirt with long tails provide beautifully easy staples that can be self styled in a myriad of ways.
The classic Serena trouser appears in a luscious marshmallow pink as well as cocoa brown (the standout colour for fall) and features extra fine piping and a semi tailored waistband. Meanwhile, the Alice trouser with a grosgrain ribbon fastening and the extra wide jogger provide more casual cuts. All can be happily paired with the flute sleeve side slit top or the new graphic three tone shirt. The easiest pant of all, a utility style cut in the softest brushed cotton with deep pockets, is an everyday go to and an ideal travel piece.
For play days and beach days there are tailored play shorts, boxers and the prettiest broderie anglaise sundress. For late summer evenings, Bute’s velvet trim long slip and spaghetti strap dress in acqua silk are bias cut to skim and shimmy around the body.
