HUMMINGBIRD - latest from RANT Clothing.
Posted on March 14 2014
Hummingbird is the latest collection out from Rant and available now at our Sustainable Fashion online store.
It is easy to see why it is called Hummingbird. The beautiful light silk print pieces have the most beautiful Hummingbirds all over it, mixed with passion fruit flowers. The limited edition print is exclusive to Rant and available in three styles. The Hummingbird dress is a overlay dress that can be worn right now in the late summer heat, or add long sleeves and pants under for more warmth as the cooler weather starts.
The Hanna silk top (this style named after our Hummingbird model Hannah, who has the most amazing red hair). This top has a little cap type of sleeve which is an extension of the yoke. The front has long wrap pieces that can be worn in several ways. You can tie the ends together with the stretch mousseline ties (a French made product that is a very fine stretch elastic) and they add to the detail of this top as well as being functional. The Hanna silk top comes in the Hummingbird silk print and plain colours that can be layered over the silk print dress.
The final Hummingbird silk pieces is the Hummingbird scarf. A generous long scarf that has two sets of stretch mousseline ties so you can wrap it around, make a cowl neck scarf or anything you dream up. This is a way to have some of the print to add to any outfit. The scarf would stand out well over all black, but if you look thru the pics of the Hummingbird collection you will see that it looks great over the Blue Pima cotton fabric, the plum or taupe garments or any under layer.
I will write about more of the new styles in the coming weeks as we prepare the second part of the new collection with all the Australian merino pieces. In the meantime the RANT website has the complete collection to view as well as being able to download the catalogue. Any questions feel free to send through an email using our contact form also.
