Utility and romance mingle in Out of Africa-inspired pieces
Sun-kissed terrains and a palette inspired by the earth never ceases to capture the imagination of artists, poets and writers. The same can be said for designers and retailers, who are looking to the great outdoors for inspiration. Like Meryl Streep in her role as Baroness Karen von Blixen (nee Dinesen) in Out of Africa, the film’s costumes have since made an impact on fashion for their mix of utility and romance; linen dresses, time-worn and weathered; safari coats and straw hats continue to make an impression. Whether it’s tidy weekend dressing or summer workwear that segues into the New Year, invest in lightweight knits and fabrics that are soft to the touch and inspire an easy, languid mood just right for the season.
