Autumn Winter 2017

A swatch of a Prince of Wales check spied in a brocante market was the starting point for Autumn/ Winter 17’s mood of boyish sophistication.

Influenced by Japanese dressing gown coating in a picnic blanket tartan juxtaposed with the vividness of bold, colourful, floral prints, Caramel combines tougher, sharper tailoring with the luxury of Argyle knitwear and silk jacquards.

At the core of Caramel is an unflinching way with colour, unique prints and embroidered details. Shocking bright shades and rich textures – cognac and teal velvets or plush jumbo cord – tone down the somberness of 1940s style fabrics.

“It’s like a Christmas dinner. Everything is here” says founder and creative director, Eva Karayiannis.

The mainstay of ready to wear offers casual and effortless clothes and an anthology of textures including plenty of sweat-shirting which incorporates design, fun, comfort and a dash of elegance.

For boys this translates as Japanese low crotch, comfy trousers or shirts with slouchy collars and turtle neck sweaters. Girls can delight in ditsy floral print dresses which clash with leopard print coats. Camel especially is a staple which is worn against sludgy shades of pink, brown and Caramel’s signature off-beat colour palette that is intentionally mismatched.
