Grevillea 2: Back to Nature - Part 2/3 - Bamboo in the bamboo grove•
Posted on October 10 2018
If you haven't seen it, the new collection is in full swing! Grevillea 2 features lots of our popular styles as well as new additions and adaptations.
We will be doing a three part series to highlight the individual sections of our beautiful range. So stay tuned!
Part 1 is already done, which focuses on the Natural part of our beautiful range. It can be found here.
Our high quality Australian made bamboo stretch jersey is the focus in this part. We have done a full blog story about the fabric here. The multitude of bamboo styles we have are the perfect basics for either layering, or just on their own. Returning favourites such as the Nancy top, Nancy dress, Dana top or the Thea skirt provide a huge array of mix and match styling.
The new Eternal top is a great summer singlet/cami with nice sturdy straps that are wide enough to cover all bra straps. It is double layered over the bust to accomodate a range of bust sizes without any issue. A great top to wear under a shrug or cardigan if you prefer arm coverage or simply on it's own to feel comfortable in the summer heat. It will work for casual or dressed up occasions, in fact it's our new favourite bamboo top.
We had so many requests to bring back the Sweetgums, that we had to make some more! Originally made back in 2010, the Sweetgum is a super comfortable hybrid between leggings, pants, and a skirt. Sarah has graded the skirt to have extra length for the larger sizes (an extra 2 cm on top of the normal grade), to provide more cover. A great all around piece, put them on with any top and you have an awesome outfit.
Along with the new styles we have other favourite tops coming back: the Viola tee, Dana top, and Bonnie tunic. Depending on your taste and how much coverage you are after, there are so many ways to change up these styles to create what works for you.
What better way to mix up your tops than be able to mix your bottom half up too! The Emma skirt and the Thea skirts are a much loved recurring edition to our Bamboo layers. The Emma skirt features a large split on each side to allow for greater air flow, while maintaining a long and flowing skirt. If you are looking for something shorter and without splits, the Thea is the skirt option for you. With internal ties on each side of the skirt, you are able to bunch it up for extra texture and adjust the length.
If dresses are more your thing, we have the right style for you. The Prima dress is one of our longest running styles, enjoyed by a range of body shapes. Fitted around the bust but flaring out from the body to make it lighter for summer and easier to layer in colder times. A very easy fit and a no-fuss dress. It suits all sizes from XS- XXL and all body shapes.
There are plenty of other styles that you can mix and match. They can be found in our bamboo layers section.
Keep posted for our last part of the series on Grevillea 2: Back to Nature.
