At Yumi, we’re lucky enough to work with a very talented bunch of in-house designers. As a result, the majority of what you see on the site… and hanging in your wardrobe has come from their imaginations.
To tie in with the launch of our new Spring/Summer 18′ range, we’re taking you inside the design studio! Filled with colours palettes and swatches, find out what inspired the team and take a sneak peak at the new collection.
Kicking off Spring/Summer with an explosion of colour is our Retro Traveller collection. Inspired by the adventures of a jet setting air hostess, it has everything you need when packing for your dream holiday. Filled with aquatic blues and vibrant reds, this fun collection is brought to life with quirky patterns and landscape inspired prints.
When seeking inspiration, the design team couldn’t help but fall in love with the bright lights of Panama. With bursts of bright reds and aquatic blues, you’ll feel like you’re walking through the streets of South America. If relaxing by green landscapes is your style, enjoy peaceful tranquility in our updated seaside scene tunic dress.
No print sums up our Retro Traveller collection more perfectly than the print of the name, seen above. Filled with bright colours, winding roads and bustling cafes, the design team had so much fun creating this pattern. We like to imagine this is one of our jet setting air hostesses favourite towns along her travels! Check out the digital print of the vibrant town print, how it was translated onto cotton and then end result. This dress will be online soon, so keep your eyes peeled!
Influenced by traditional French landscaping, palace architecture and grand iron gates, our Versailles Gardens collection is the epitome of femininity and romance. The designers couldn’t help but fall in love with the whimsical charm found on the streets of Paris.
To create this stunning collection, the designers spent a lot of time working with luxurious jacquard and working it into new shapes. To add to the femininity of the collection, prints were kept soft with botanicals, ribbons, lace and ruffles. Here are a few of sneak peaks that are too pretty to not share!
Take a walk on the wild side in our Planet Earth collection. Inspired by the deepest depths of the jungle, our hand drawn prints and bright colours will take you on a journey into the unknown.
Throughout the design process, the team were keen to explore the animal kingdom, so don’t be surprised if you spot a giraffe, flamingo and even a seahorse or two! Staying true to the tropical climates of these animals, the team designed classic tunics and skater dresses in bright yellows and shades of crimson.
Keen to see how these prints came to life? Be sure to look out for this animal inspired pieces- coming soon!
