SS13 - Cuban Feels

This season sees a focus on playful Cuban culture, with cool base colours of jade, navy and lilac offset with pops of citrus and statement tipping.

Colour blocking, bi-colour prints and geometrics add a playful dimension throughout the season while hues become more saturated for high summer.

Texture is a key feature of the SS13 collection, with summer tweeds a favourite moving towards the autumn season. Effortlessly chic and versatile, it is perfect for easy luxe style.

Q & As


COLLECTION by John Lewis Cairey Tailored Shift Dress, Black 5 5 1 1
The perfect work dress This dress is well made and good value for money.. It slides over any 'bumpy' bits and fits beautifully. It does not crease and is fully lined. Highly recommended for all ages. I would happily buy this dress in other colours and in different lengths. 14 September 2013
