    A TALLULAH & HOPE KAFTAN ISNT JUST FOR SUMMER

    silk kaftans, silk evening dresses, party wear dresses

    Our kaftans are such classic pieces why limit wearing them just to the summer months? They also work beautifully as a dress for evening and with the party season soon upon us a classic kaftan makes a brilliant party look. Simply layer over tights, one of our silk slips (we've also just introduced a new, longer bias cut slip) and add a suede accessory. We layered our classic Long kaftan over a super fine polo neck (from Uniqlo), our long silk slip and then added our suede Scarf belt with a vintage Ascher scarf and a pair of grey suede Marc Jacobs boots. This look is inspired by great 70's style, a style decade close to our hearts and also close to the heart of Marc Jacobs his SS2011 collection was pure 70's and utterly amazing for it. 70's style is set to be a big trend for next spring/summer we cannot wait!

    ASCHER RE-ISSUES ARTIST DESIGNED SCARVES

    Iconic textile brand Ascher re-issues artist designed scarves, 1970's vintage Ascher neck scarves at Tallulah & Hope

    Iconic textile firm Ascher have launched their new website and delved into their rich archive to select the best of their mid-century artist collaborations to re-issue a collection of beautiful scarves. The chosen designs come from Graham Sutherland, Feliks Topolski, Gerald Wilde and Henry Moore. Four designs by Lida Ascher have also been re-visited - 'Flowers', the Ascher plaid, 'Papier Dechiré' and 'Rose Pompom' - which featured in Dior's 1954 collection.

    Read the full and fascinating article by Wallpaper* magazine.

    T&H are long standing admirers of the brilliant creative heritage of Ascher; we are lucky enough to be selling a selection of vintage Ascher neck scarves from the 1970's made from open-weave mousse de coton - a fabric that is now obsolete.

    GOATS MILK SOAP, YES REALLY!

    Goats Milk Soap from France

    Soap made from Goats milk, mmm weird? That was our initial reaction when the very lovey Cynthia Conran (wife of West London restaurateur Tom Conran) introduced us to Exquises Caprines, a collection of soaps made from goats milk and almond oil. These soaps are in fact fabulous, we particularly love the Jasmin scented ones which smells like heaven. They also produce a lovely rich lather.

    Why make soap with Goats milk we asked?.....Well, apparently the fat molecules in goats milk are exceptionally thin and therefore easily absorbed through the skin. Leaving skin feeling hydrated, smooth, soft and supple. The soaps are also known for their antibacterial properties making them very effective for treating for dry skin and eczema.

    Cynthia recently launched The Collective Designs, a series of pop-up shopping events where she brings together interesting designers, artists and beautifully made products. She will be selling these wonderful soaps at forthcoming events.

    The Goats milk soap comes from the beautiful medieval village Rocamadour in France

    STUNNING JEWELLERY BY TOHUM DESIGN

    Tohum Jewellery, beautiful accessories to wear with kaftans

    Tohum Design, created by Istanbul based jewellery designer Verda Alaton, launch heir website. Verda spent five years in New York where she worked with African art experts and started collecting tribal artifacts and accessories while working on her first design ideas. In 2008, she launched Tohum design, her philosophy is to only work with natural stones and materials, creating pure organic shapes and structures. Every Tohum design is a bespoke piece, handcrafted using traditional techniques following the character of each stone ensuring every piece is completely individual.

    We particularly love the pieces in the 'Rare' collection some the rings are made from very precious and beautiful shells sourced on Verda's trips to Africa.

    We used one of Verda's rings to style our Classic Long kaftan, her jewellery pieces are truly special. In London the Melissa Odabash boutique on Ledbury Road stocks some of the Tohum Design collection but worth emailing Verda directly as she frequently visits London and sells through private shopping events.

    SUMMER LITCHFIELD'S POSITANO

    Summer Litchfield wears Tallulah & Hope kaftans in Positano and shares her favourite pieces

    One of T&H's favourite journalists Summer Litchfield, former Features Associate at Tatler and Arts Editor at Esquire and now freelance, shares her favourite places to visit in Positano and Italy's Amalfi coast.

    Summer Litchfield’s Positano
    I’ve been going to Positano with my husband Nicolas for the last four years as his great aunt Vivina (who, well into her eighties, is my fashion icon) has lived there since the Sixties and we’re lucky enough to be able to stay with her. It’s a completely magical place; a sort of fairy grotto by the sea that suddenly appears as you turn a corner on the famously bendy road along the Amalfi coast.

    The place feels wonderfully stuck in the Fifties and always brings to mind images of Jackie Onassis and Sophia Loren winding through the narrow streets. There are a lot of steps in Positano so heels are tricky and this year I lived in my tan, studded Gap sandals.

    During the day we go to our favourite beach, Spiagga di Laurito. It’s tiny and pebbly and you have to get there by boat but it’s full of characters and has a little restaurant, Da Adolfo, which serves the most delicious food – I dream about the spaghetti vongole and mozzarella grilled on lemon leaves when I’m not there. I usually wear simple, cotton cover-ups so I think I caused a bit of a stir this year arriving in my Hero Tallulah & Hope kaftan, accessorised with a vintage Dior necklace which (apparently) used to belong to Marianne Faithful.

    You can buy great hats really cheaply on the Amalfi coast, for around 10 euros, so you don’t feel too guilty leaving them behind at the end of your holiday. This year I found a pretty blush pink one that I liked too much to leave.

    It’s always fun to pop across to Capri or drive to Ravello or Amalfi for the day and my Classic Short kaftan in Starlings navy/pink worn with my skinny white ‘Norma’ Lee jeans was perfect for taking me through from a day’s window shopping and cafe lounging to dinner at our favourite restaurant in Positano La Cambusa, which does the best fresh fish carpaccios and seabass ‘aqua pazza’.

    The terrace at Le Sirenuse, Positano’s swankiest hotel, is a lovely spot for pre-dinner Camparis or a post-dinner grappa as it has the most amazing views; all twinkling lights and the moon’s reflection shimmering across the sea.

    John Steinbeck was right when he described Positano as ‘a dream place that bites deep’ and I’m already counting the months until we return.

    Summer’s Holiday Style Essentials
    Bikinis – You can’t beat Top Shop and I love French brands like Eberjey which is stocked in one of my favourite local boutiques, Iris.
    Shades – I live in my trusty Rayban Aviators but also have a pair of neon pink and transparent, oversized Matthew Williamson shades I love.
    Jewellery – I’m a minimal girl at heart but have become quite smitten with two wooden and silver beaded bracelets that my father-in-law bought me from a shop called Ilaria in Peru.
    Bags – Canvas tote bags all the way for summer hols. I have a supersized navy and white one for the beach and a little red leather trimmed one from Pickett that’s ideal for day-tripping
