Currently Coveting: Poetry Summer Collection 2018

A little splash of spring colour to brighten your day (mine’s pretty grey!)

I popped into the Poetry Summer 2018 launch last week and snapped a few photos of their gorgeous collection for the upcoming summer season.

How pretty is this entrance tho? WOW!


Here are a few more of the things I’m Currently Coveting from the Poetry Summer Collection..



Practicality meets exotic in block-printed Indian tablecloths, Thai glassware, Vietnamese sea-grass baskets, brightly decorated terracotta planters, and handmade crockery in Portuguese colours and designs.

Far-flung finds live happily alongside locally crafted items, such as Kapula candles and ceramics from Bredasdorp, as well as bath-and body products, candles, diffusers and room sprays, all of which have been produced in South Africa.

The serene palette of blues, aqua, teal and blush pink made my heart very happy, as these are exactly the colours I love to use in my own home!

…long, hazy days of pure summertime contentment – the very epitome of relaxed sophistication…



The room was full of beautiful blooms, bursts of colour and lovely looks that I wanted to add to my wardrobe immediately… most especially those red espadrilles!

Inspired by far-flung journeys to the world’s foremost trend destinations, Poetry’s new range evokes excitement with a carefully curated palette of nautical neutrals featuring white, navies and blues. This is bolstered by pops of yellow (this season’s hottest trend), cerise pink and lobster coral, and underpinned by hints of olive, pistachio green, soft pink and milky hues.

….vibrant summer full of whimsical encounters and a love of all things fresh and botanical…

Shoulders and sleeves take centre stage, with plenty of ruffle detailing and sultry, cold-shoulder items.

Tie detail is also key, and makes an appearance on sleeves, necklines and waists; with contrast and self-colour embroidery offering a dash of alluring texture. Stripes in all shapes and sizes are also front and centre!



The new range of leather bags in beautiful silhouettes of all shapes and sizes is gorgeous. I’m currently in the market for a new wallet and I definitely have my eye on this super soft leather one…

And how pretty is the exquisitely fine sterling silver range of jewellery?

So if anyone wants to know what’s on my Christmas Wish List – just scroll up!



The Poetry Spring/Summer range for 2018 is now available in stores and online while this season’s homeware and décor range will launch in store and online in November and December.
