The stars of the new Absolutely Fabulous The Movie (set for release 1st July 2016) Joanna Lumley (who plays magazine editor Patsy) and Jennifer Saunders (who plays PR Guru Edina) wear Tallulah & Hope Long kaftan dress in T&H exclusive prints Tetra Blue and White from our SS16 for scenes set in the South of France. We love the over the top styling and this picture of Patsy and Edina wearing their T&H kaftans with film star Joan Collins. We were delighted to be chosen as one of the designer fashion brands to be featured in the film. Award-winning costumer designer Rebecca Hale “I love T&H's graphic and distinctive kaftan prints, Absolutely Fabulous The Movie is set in the South of France and I thought they would work beautifully for Edina and Patsy’s resort wardrobe. T&H stand out as one of the most directional and exciting kaftan brands out there”.
A good capsule holiday wear wardrobe should capture the essence of your style in one simple statement. Our focused selection of sunshine styles (available in T&H signature prints) include beach cover-ups, tunic dresses, stunning silk kaftans, and elegant beach dresses. Versatile, easy to pack and endlessly stylish - each glorious garment can be worn over a swimsuit or pared with shorts, sandals and summery accessories to create sensational looks to suit your mood and environment.
The hero kaftan and beach dress is our oh-so stunning offering to replace the humble over-sized t-shirt on holiday. Slip it on after a swim or dress it up for dinner, there is nothing this incredible designer kaftan can’t handle. The strength is in the simplicity and the carefully designed print that beautifully defines the body. Easy to wear, soft on the skin this kaftan dress and beach coverup can can be knotted or tied to great affect transforming this simple silhouette into something unique and remarkable.
For our SS16 collection we have reimagined the glamorous beach pyjama look from 1930's resort wear. Our Jasmine short kaftans, lovingly designed to fulfil the role of luxurious silk t-shirt, can now be teamed with our silk beach trousers in complimentary prints to create something elegant and extraordinary. Similarly, our Kimono now comes with matching beach trousers in Tang Black.
For SS16 we've reworked our classic Beach Poncho. This super summery cover up and beach dress embodies our resort holiday wear ethos; versatile, refined and chic. It is so easy to wear, it delivers great coverage but the exposed shoulders and low 'V' keep it sexy and beach-brilliant. The split sleeve detail means you can wear this kaftan with your arms covered or exposed and the belt has been replaced with a flattering folded detail making it even easier to simply throw on. Lightweight, breathable and machine washable it will look amazing over swimsuit or with shorts, sandals and sun hat.
The T&H Long kaftan dress sits precisely between ultimate maxi-dress and classic kaftan. Available for SS16 in six beautifully designed exclusive prints. The bold, graphic prints have been carefully engineered to sit beautifully on the body and the exquisite attention to detail and perfect colour pallet makes this long designer kaftan dress a pleasure to wear again and again.
If you are looking for poolside perfection our killer kaftans, kaftan dresses, tunic dresses, beach trousers, sarongs, kimonos and beach cover ups are a winning combination of inspiring prints and simple modern shapes.
We believe in the universal appeal of the stripes, always classic and forever chic. This season for our SS16 collection of kaftans, dresses and beach coverups our exclusive print story is an organic reworking of beautiful bold stripes and exquisite colour combos.
