Embracing the idea of “feel good, feel loved and feel powerful,” Cocktail Select Shop builds a wardrobe for every occasion in its Spring Summer 2021 collection.
With a seasonal theme of “Timeless Capsule,” the collection brings together international brands with romantic hues, relaxed cutting and sustainable materials.
Up-and-coming brands to look out for are Toogood from Britain and 11.11/eleven eleven from India, both boasting trendy elements such as pink tones, denim and floral prints.
Founded by British artist and fashion designer Faye Toogood and sister Erica, the brand celebrates craftsmanship and takes its inspiration from traditional outfits. Top items include The Philosopher v-neck, which can be worn buttoned up or open as a layering piece. And The Astrologer v-neck button-down dress with side splits and high split cuff detail is an easy long dress best paired with an A-line jacket.
Renowned for its use of indigenous natural dyed cotton and silk, 11.11/eleven eleven uses heritage techniques such as hand spinning, hand-loom weaving, hand painting, miniature tie-dyeing and quilting, made by groups of artisans in India. For example, the new release stays on-trend and employs the use of patchwork.
