Think utility and a heavy dose of practicality comes to mind. But the style doesn’t have to mean combat trousers and anoraks. The utilitarian aesthetic also provides an effortless colour palette that provides a timeless capsule wardrobe that works as hard as you do.

Embracing minimalism and effortless styling, the modern take on utility welcomes feminine elements for an aesthetic that is just as pragmatic as it is polished.

Combine them with luxe fabrics to create a distinctively sophisticated twist on a previously grungy trend, and you have one of the most wearable palettes that takes you from day to night, work to weekend.

These pieces do just that: they’re comfortable, yet smart; relaxed, yet sophisticated; effortless, yet elevated. We’re coveting the Rey Herringbone pattern that intersperses grounding colours such as beige cream and black with a cool khaki.

Opt for the flattering Rey Ecovero Dress for throw-it-on-and-go styling, or if patterns aren’t your thing, choose the supple silk square scarf to elevate a straightforward, sophisticated look.
