Self-Portrait for MyTheresa

London label Self-Portrait has been a strong society favourite in recent years. Han Chong’s designs—often contemporary cocktail creations—are a stylish balance of the cool and the feminine.

Dress them up with a pair of heels for the evening or slip on a pair of sandals with his designs for brunch. Chong has created a capsule of five dresses for the German e-tailer, and we have our eyes set on the lace-up floral frock in blue (far right). What about you?

Boyy for Moda Operandi

Raffia bags have long been the must-have for a summer shopping list. We may have stocked up on plenty of natural-toned summer totes, but the four exclusive styles from Boyy on Moda Operandi are proof we may need to invest in something more colourful.

Designers Dorsey and Wannasiri Kongman of Boyy weave rainbow pastel leather and raffia onto their signature shapes, including their ‘Bobby’, the boxy top handle bag.
