Forget wine o’clock. Kaftan o’clock is the best new imaginary hour in which to wind down. Nothing puts me in a resort frame of mind quite like slipping into an elegant kaftan (even if a holiday seems painfully far away) at the end of the day or on a weekend. With several official weeks left of Summer let’s try to squeeze as much life as we can out of the sunny season. I’m predicting we’ll be treated to a hot March in Melbourne for the fashion festival anyway!
Melbourne loungewear maven Susan Rep has looked to nature for her Spring Summer 2012 collection of silky, floaty pieces. You’ll spy animal, insect and tribal prints emblazoned across her range of kaftans, lounge dresses and cover ups. Not just content to be constrained to the poolside, Susan Rep designs are intended to be worn whenever the whim hits.
Susan Rep has generously offered not one but two ‘Noelle‘ kaftans to two lucky StyleMelbourne readers. Worth $299 RRP, she describes the 100% silk design as a “deliciously silky oversize lounge kaftan shirt with contrast waist drawstring. A stunning look on its own or dressed up with heels and some jewels”. All you have to do to win one is;
1. Subscribe to my monthly e-newsletter ‘StyleSnap’ to the right or on our homepage if you aren’t already signed up.
2. Then email firstname.lastname@example.org using “Susan Rep” as the subject line. Remember to use the email you subscribed with and include your full name, postal address, size preference and tell us which Susan Rep kaftan design (apart from ‘Noelle’) is your favourite (visit the Susan Rep e-boutique to choose).
3. Wait to see if you have won this gorgeous prize! The winner will be drawn on 20th February 2012.
