Flora & Fauna
The flutter of golden butterflies on our floaty shell top makes us think of happy summer climes, it’s great for teaming with denim shorts on off-duty days. While our sophisticated gathered sateen dress stands out from across the room with its colourful bird print borders.
Fresh from our Scandinavian Seaside collection, our short sleeve shift dress and open-back top nod to a snappy orange marine creature – the lobster. A tangle of rope, anchors and mini lobster avatars; the top is great for summer adventures, while the simple cut of the shift dress makes perfect weekend get-up.
From the swinging sixties to the grungy nineties, remnants of vintage eras have been tinging the catwalk of late. Here at Yumi, we’ve been tapping into the trend, with a plethora of retro-inspired prints for you to browse.
It may take a hiatus from time-to-time, but paisley always makes its way back to us. Of Persian origin, the iconic paisley pattern later became synonymous with 1960’s fashion. Expressing a laidback retro sensibility, our paisley print wrap jumpsuit and maxi dress are well-matched to laidback summer evenings.
We’re feeling groovy and it shows in some of our latest patterns. Employing a dainty paper lace exterior, our two shirt collar swing dresses look fresh out of the yesteryear. With one patterned in circular floral-like insignias, and the other in zesty lemon yellow flora, both will make great additions to your new season dress collection.
After all that and we’re back to floral. Spotted with elegant interwoven flowers, you won’t be able to resist giving our seventies-inspired wrap dress a twirl; it’s a flattering look for summer soirees.
If the bittersweet undertones of nineties fashion is more your thing then our subtle floral stripe jumpsuit will do just the trick. Featuring a crossed over v-neckline, this sleeveless all-in-one looks ‘grungetastic’ paired with a denim jacket and platform sandals.
