Sunshine State of Mind
THE HAPPY-MAKING HUE
Sunshine lovers rejoice! Whether it calls to mind fields of swaying sunflowers, hazy summer afternoons, or scoops of zesty lemon sorbet, there’s no denying the mood-brightening magic of the colour yellow, and it just so happens to be one of the most sought-after shades this season. Take the springy, mimosa-hued separates spotted on the runway at Etro, the sun-splashed slip dresses at Alberta Ferretti, and the canary-toned trenches at Prada, who incidentally sent models sashaying through a space with a banana-bright backdrop. It’s at once empowering and playful; a joyful riposte to the long-drawn-out anguish of the past year. Call it manifesting, if you will; when it comes to ushering in a decidedly sunnier outlook, your wardrobe’s a stellar place to start.
Let the Sunshine In
In the spirit of putting a spring in your step, YOLKE’s brand spanking new Corduroy Suit is here to dial up the saturation. Crafted in Italian cotton-corduroy and presented in zingy sunshine yellow - the most nostalgia-inducing shade out there - our three-piece capsule collection taps into the bohemian inclinations of the free-spirited 70s. Delicate silk georgette frills on both the collar and cuffs lend a subtly romantic feel to our button-down Belle Blouse, which is cut for a satisfyingly close fit, while the Bow Jean - designed to sit high on the waist and finished with a leg-lengthening bootcut flare - could well have been plucked straight from the set of That ‘70s Show. Last but by no means least, the beautifully tailored Hilary Jacket completes the line-up - with tortoiseshell-toned buttons and a smooth ivory lining, it’s guaranteed to buoy your mood at a moment’s notice - consider it a ray of sartorial sunshine.
Ways to Wear Them
YOLKE’s fresh take on 70s suiting urges you to embrace your inner flower child. With their perfect proportions and oversized bow-style belt, our slim-flared corduroy jeans are precisely the type of trouser you can pull on with a printed silk cami and sunglasses when heading out to an alfresco lunch date, or a sun-washed Woodstock tee and baseball shoes for a spot of Sunday antiquing. Tuck in the matching blouse and add a smattering of chunky gold rings, à la Matilda Goad in last week’s issue of The Telegraph’s Stella magazine, for an ensemble made in match-a-malist heaven, or for added punch, lean into spring colour blocking and style all three pieces - our Belle Blouse, Bow Jean and Hilary Jacket - together. It’s your call!
