Lunar – Naturally Fashionable
Lunar is a South African lifestyle and clothing brand founded by designer Karen Ter Morshuizen and her husband Paul Harris more than a decade ago. Since it’s inception Lunar has been sensitive to environmental concerns, making use, almost exclusively of natural fibres and pigment dyes. Each collection reflects their essential design philosophy. “Lunar is about finding inspiration in the small things around us, and emphasizing an appreciation for our environment,” says Karen, who enjoys reviving old-fashioned techniques: hand knitting, smocking, felting, African beading and hand embroidery. This Charcoal Boiled Wool Draped Gilet Top whose loose ruffled collar detail borders the neckline and forms a drape like detail. This larger detail accentuates the waist, along with the help of pin tuck detailing down the sides. $148 USD. Pair with the Charcoal Boiled Wool Pencil Skirt. $113 USD.
These Black Mesh Leggings are perfect for this season, and the mesh material gives these leggings a slightly sexier appeal than solid leggings. $49 USD.
This V-Neck Empire Dress comes in green (shown), navy or black. With its V neck detail front and drop V back, rouched empire waist and tie, this number is guaranteed to flatter any figure. The beautiful fabric falls freely to the floor creating an elegant effect. $240 USD. If you are in S.A. – stop by their stores in Cape Town or Jo’burg.
