Indian born Sushmitha Ilango uses ‘khadi’ (a traditional hand woven fabric) to explore contrasts between modern and traditional techniques. Also from India, Neha Pawar, who has a background as a commercial artist, will show work that is a culmination of research into traditional motifs and the seemingly unending possibility of pattern within textiles.

23-24th July

Collections by Achimar Nirunpornputta, who describes herself as a ‘day dreamer with a Peter Pan syndrome’ and Flaviyake who believes that ‘clothes should create a mood.’

We hope to see you soon!

Nauticoco – ‘add on’ collar accessories

The most popular request for style of collars is the Peter Pan collar as my blog’s statistic indicates. Today, my category ‘Peter Pan collars’ is replenished with ‘add on’ collars produced by Nauticoco.

Nauticoco.com has announced the launch of its first ever online boutique, featuring a versatile and timeless collection of premium silk ‘add on’ collar accessories that make outfits even more special by personalising new and existing wardrobe pieces.

This unique online concept, the first of its kind, will give visitors the chance to purchase 100% silk ‘add on’ collars in a range of colours, described as ‘a unique combination between fashion accessory and jewellery’, some delicately embellished with Swarovski pearls, crystals, beads and French lace.

Alison Williams, Director of Nauticoco commented: “For Autumn, ‘add on’ collars are a must have accessory, you only have to look to the catwalk to see that collar adornments were a strong trend with many high-end designers including them in their collections. We are excited to have launched online and are already stocking some of the pre-season collection, with more styles in different textures, currently in production”.

Nauticoco was established in December 2010 as a dedicated online resource for ‘add on’ accessories. The entire collection has been developed and manufactured in the UK, keeping volumes lower and making the products that much more exclusive. With the focus on style, attention to detail and timeless elegance, the Nauticoco collection maximises usability and a person’s individuality by changing the look or impact of a dress, top or sweater in an instant, making them the perfect finishing touch to any outfit.  
What I find so comfortable in these collars is that you do not need to buy a blouse to wear under your sweater, you can wear only an ‘add on’ collar instead. What concerns me, it is quite problematic to find blouses in size XS, so I could wear an ‘add on’ collar under a sweater of low neck or V-neck and do not think about sizes any more. The other positive feature of the ‘add on’ collar is that the wearer does not have holes between the collar and the garment. So they both look like one garment.
I found collars in different colours on Nauticoco.com. They can match many garments of any wardrobe.
