If you like Isabel Marant look, less the Printemps price point, here's the UK high street brand you need to check out (trust me, you'll be surprised!)
High street retailer East has had a fashion re-brand this year. Yes, it still targets an older, less fashion-focussed customer, but in amongst the classic pieces are some exquisitely made, hand-embroidered treasures that could easily pass as finds from the Souks of Marrakech. If you have an exotic beach holiday on the horizon, this is your go-to for chic tunics and kaftans that offer something different from the rest of the high street. In particular, the Limited Edition collection is my favourite line, with smaller runs of each style produced to maintain that exclusivity. I am wearing the embroidered Jacquard Jacket, which East only manufactured 30 of, making it a very special piece.
