Pippa Holt's kaftans are handcrafted by artisans using traditional methods and take one month to make. Woven from white cotton with pretty pink stripes, this style falls to a flattering point below your knee and is intricately covered with blue thread in a geometric pattern. Each panel is stitched with matching blue thread by hand, which takes up to four days to complete. Best left loose, but if you prefer a more defined shape this piece looks chic belted too. +
The Pippa Holt Kaftan label is a celebration of Holt’s love of indigenous textiles, bold colours and far-flung travel. Collaborating with a group of artisans in a remote part of Mexico (Felipa, head weaver has been weaving for more than 50 years), together they have created a range of bold, colourful and stylish kaftans that exude an understated luxury which works as well in the city as it does on the beach. Holt's editorial background as a stylist at British Vogue, a degree in fashion design combined with her love of travel is very much evident in her collection. Growing up on the beaches of Australia, she was inspired by her grandmother's style of tropical dressing at her seaside holiday home on The Great Barrier Reef.
