This la­bel con­jures up sun-drenched days, even when it’s cold out­side

Life & Style Weekend - - WELCOME // INSIDE TODAY - with Sally Coates

EVEN care­free chil­dren of the sun feel the cold, and when they do it’s la­bels like Cabo Gypsy they turn to.

Owner Sharon Fletcher set out to de­sign her own fash­ion and home decor la­bel based around a love for end­less sum­mers and is­land get­aways.

In her win­ter col­lec­tions, you will still find styles in­spired by trop­i­cal des­ti­na­tions to help sate your crav­ing for warmer weather, sun­shine and happy days by the sea.

“The lat­est col­lec­tion, PRISM, is in­spired by hues found from our earth, tak­ing colours from na­ture in­clud­ing sea-foam blue, spice mar­ket red and fo­liage green,” Sharon says.

“Like a prism, the col­lec­tion comes to­gether as an in­ter­sec­tion of all the el­e­ments.

“The col­lec­tion has some­thing for ev­ery­one, whether that be bold an­i­mal print dresses, tie-dye styles, bo­hemian in­spired graphic tees or even a lux­u­ri­ous camel leather jacket.”

Be­ing a true Queens­lan­der, Sharon tends to dig in her san­dal-wrapped heels when it comes to suc­cumb­ing to dull win­ter fash­ion but she man­ages to keep it ex­tra lively when the cold wins. “I’m al­ways chas­ing the end­less sum­mer, I do not usu­ally love win­ter styles,” she says.

“It seems ev­ery time win­ter comes around, ev­ery­one is dressed in darker plain colours.

“I love bright, vi­brant colours and bold prints, hence my col­lec­tion fo­cus­ing around vi­brant blue, red and tie-dye hues.

“That said, I love lay­er­ing, some­thing the bo­hemian look al­lows for, whether that be a lush leather jacket or a big, over­sized furry coat.

“I love a lot of the In­sta­gram in­flu­encer’s win­ter styles, such as model Mimi Elashiry and the Spell De­sign’s own­ers, Is­abella and El­iz­a­beth. I also adore ac­tress Is­abelle Lu­cas’ look.”
