Forever the brand that incites pause and appreciation for the finer things in life, it should come as no surprise that Dadelszen’s latest collection heralds one of the most luxurious materials there is: silk. Boasting a much-awaited supply of elegant pieces that adhere to a more classic approach, this is one collection that we’ll be sporting for seasons to come.
Pared-back and rendered in monochrome hues, (although the pieces can be made to order in a wide selection of colours, including Dadelszen’s seasonal hues of claret red and sapphire blue) the collection comprises a considered curation of staples, each designed to take pride of place in wardrobes infinitely. The most notable staple of all, the classic silk blouse, has even been interpreted in two ways. The Diana Silk Blouse, with its sheer and solid silk panels and sleek necktie adornment, makes for an alluring evening choice, while the Anja Silk Blouse, showcasing buttons blanketed in silk on both the cuffs and collar, is a sleek addition to the workwear wardrobe. The Joni Tunic, too, boasts this sophisticated traditionalism, with its silk covered buttons and elegant wrap styling it makes for the perfect sartorial foray into the warmer months.
One piece we’re especially coveting is the silk and wool Valletta tuxedo, an alluring combination that comes with its own elegant waistcoat. Featuring grosgrain shawl lapels and rendered in minimal white, the full suit is a faultless option for formal occasions, while the jacketless iteration makes a prime outfit choice for sun-drenched barbeques and long al fresco lunches come springtime — exactly where we’ll be wearing our silk pieces to, each warmer season, for years to come.
