Summer – it’s the season for bright breezy colours, inventive fashion and showcasing your unique style – and no one knows this better than Jana Kachel: designer of feminine woman’s wear line KACHEL.
Creating pieces that are versatile from day to night, and acknowledging that true fashion is about creating a unique, personalised look with a nod to trends, we asked the designer to weigh in on her hot tips for summer fashion.
What are the key trends we should look out for this summer?
To me this summer it’s all about feminine dresses in electric bright prints that you can mix and match creating a girlish boho feel.
What’s the inspiration behind the KACHEL summer collection?
Kachel’s Summer collection embraces the endless summer of love. Delicious creamy vanilla, with tangy sorbets and fresh sapphire blues combine to create the ‘love in a mist’ colour palette. The eclectic prints are vibrant, bright and fun, created whilst daydreaming of tropical getaways.
This feminine collection is designed to mix and match and create confidence in the wearer helping her explore ranges of colour, prints and textures.
What are your favourite KACHEL pieces for summer?
Hard question because I love them all, however this collection I adore the silk pants in both prints (I wear them almost every day to work) I also love the sapphire lace pieces as they are feminine and perfect for mixing and matching. The Ellie Dress in Positano printed silk is also one of my favourites; this dress is a classic shape in a fun bright print perfect for fun summer nights.
What’s the secret to take an outfit from day to night
I’m a full time working mum so all my outfits take me from day to night, meetings to play dates and walks in the park. Layering helps to mix up an outfit and I always add fun accessories where I can.
What are the 3 items every woman should have in their wardrobe?
I think this summer every woman should own a printed pair of silk pants a coloured lace dress and a bright blazer.
What’s the best advice you ever received?
Don’t be afraid to mix/clash colours & prints.
Who’s your style icon and why?
Kate Moss – She has an effortlessly chic style with the ability to look fashionable without even trying.
