Effortlessly chic skirts are essential pieces for summer 2023. Elegant, flattering, and versatile, silk skirts are an indispensable item in your holiday wardrobe.

One garment for two totally different looks, easy right? 

Leather belts - the perfect accessory

A leather belt is a timeless accessory that takes any outfit to the next level. Whether you're wearing a maxi dress, a kimono, or silk skirt, a leather belt instantly adds that touch of extra class. Try a belt with an eye-catching buckle to give your outfit a playful touch, or go for a sleek, minimalist belt for a more understated look. Leather belts are not only fashionable but they’re also an easy way to achieve a flattering fit by accentuating your waist and giving your look a more tailored silhouette.  

Our Italian-made belts are carefully crafted from the finest leather. We’re so confident in their quality that they include a 10-year guarantee. Read more about this on our 10-year-belt-guarantee.

Silk soft kimonos - flowy and blissful to wear
Light and airy silk kimonos are a perfect choice for hot summer days. Available in an array of striking colors and unique prints, as well as long or short-sleeve varieties, there is an endless possibility of looks. Combine them with simple trousers or a skirt, add some complementary accessories and sandals, and your outfit is complete!

Cotton kaftans and pulls - breathable and comfortable
Stay cool and comfortable this summer in breathable natural fabrics. Cotton kaftans and light sweaters are the perfect choice for a relaxed summer style. Cotton, being a natural fabric, efficiently absorbs moisture and ensures you stay cool on hot days. Opt for a vibrant-colored cotton Monae and effortlessly pair it with your preferred pants or skirt for a chic ensemble.

Wrap it up with wrap-around silk pants
New to the collection, and a definite one to include in your summer suitcase; our classy silk wrap-around pants elevate any wardrobe. Inspired by Thai fisherman’s pants and given a K&J twist, the Roberto and Rosario are an elegant and comfortable choice for warm summer evenings. Wrap and fasten at the front, or tie at the back for an alternative look. Get creative and enjoy the versatility of this summer must-have.

Belts remain a popular trend, including the esteemed brand Louis Vuitton, showcasing their unique take on this fashion statement. Vibrant and printed bold pieces are also favored by Comme des Garçons. This summer encourages boldness and experimentation with various styles. The term "pants" takes on new interpretations this season, as seen on Alexander McQueen's runway, featuring pants skirts, wrap pants, bermuda shorts, and half trousers — a realm of possibilities!
