Capitalising on Caramel’s signature offering of understated, effortless shapes, women’s trousers are typically loose, drawstring styles or relaxed straight leg cuts. They make for practical, every day wardrobe staples in the softest of fabrics including washed linen, stiffer cotton poplin, corduroys or wool in the label’s signature palette of off-beat colours.

An abundance of home grown craftmanship, bold print and a sophisticated, idiosyncratic use of layered colours and textures makes up the essence of caramel. It was originally conceived to challenge traditional, limited perceptions of childrenswear and a strong, distinctive aesthetic of fresh silhouettes which balance the classic and contemporary quickly emerged and continues to flourish each season.
Eva Karayiannis, the label’s founder has allowed women to stamp their own indelible mark on clothes which look every bit as modern as they feel considered, uncomplicated and luxurious.
That’s why at Caramel we often reference the charm of vintage pieces, bringing them right up to date in the development stages of our collections. We aim to push the boundaries of the colour palette, creating a playful rhythm of layered colours and textures. Along with our confident, bold prints, we enjoy an attention to detail – a distinctive collar or garment silhouette, cut from exquisite cloths.

We make clothes for adventure, but we are also on an adventure ourselves – and that still thrills me every day.” Read less
