The recent trend for collaborations between fashion and heritage textile design, sees this latest creative twinning. High street brand Oasis linked arms with the V&A at the museum last month to showcase their highly desirable capsule collection. With a selection of botanical prints and feminine florals from the V&A’s archives, Oasis have produced a range of kimonos, dresses and coordinating pieces which are sure to fly. A small selection of patterned footwear completes the look in the shape of V&A printed Gandys flip-flops. Check out the full collection when it launches this month in the UK.
With this compassionate brand you get to look good and feel good at the same time. Gandys was the brainchild of two inspiring brothers after the devastating loss of both their parents in 2004’s Tsunami. Rob and Paul were compelled to continue their parents charitable efforts and give something to children less fortunate than themselves. 10% of the company’s profits goes towards their charity Orphans for Orphans.
