Bolts of bright colour, graphic stripes, oversize bombers, and cargo pants – Serena Bute blends versatility and elegant ease in the new pre spring collection. “Effortlessness, agelessness the core of what we do,” says Bute.Shop Collection
VERSATILITYTo raise spirits and signal 2020 optimism, saturated colours including daffodil yellow, shocking pink, poppy, graphite and tangerine tantalise in co-ordinating items that play with proportion. The Serena shirt is reimagined in outsize dimensions and fresh to the fold is a topstitched version with a streamlined silhouette that skims the waist. Both can be paired with Bute’s signature joggers and trousers. There’s a new extra wide version that sweeps softly and flatteringly to the floor and that style finds its match in a hip length oversize bomber jacket that could slink over just about everything.
Serena’s emphasis on luxury utility and adaptability exemplified in a new cargo pant that features an adjustable waistband to fit the pant to your whims whether high or low and button tab hems. It looks evening ready and work smart in a crisp Japanese cotton. A standout material is a new silk/cotton mix dogs tooth jacquard (in ivory or black) that hits fashion’s renewed appreciation for timeless, sartorial style head on. It’s cut into a pukka slouchy mannish style trouser that could happily saunter into the boardroom. All the materials in the collection including silks and brushed cottons, crepes, velvets and the exclusive Bute wool (woven on the isle of Bute in Scotland) are noble. Fabrics are sourced from the finest mills and are made to mix playfully together as well as enhance tactile delight.
A sense of easy glamour takes the Bute woman into evening. That quality speaks softly with a new addition of silk pyjamas with contrast piping, sequin palazzo pants and in coordinating velvet polo necks and flares in ivory and black. These are the best ‘standby’ items to pack in a case or to simply get you out of the door ready to enjoy life’s pleasures.
Bute’s is a school of dressing that is flexible, stress free.
