PHILOSOPHY Introducing Filiarmi, a refreshingly on-trend cocktail meets evening-wear brand from Istanbul designed to make you turn heads this summer. Filiarmi aims to empower women with its contemporary, feminine and effortless styles that use colour and shaping to enhance and celebrate the female form. For Spring/Summer 2021 Filiarmi has been inspired by famous painters and sculptures. The collection channels effortless elegance using luxurious materials including soft silks and tulle. Off-the-shoulder scallop hem tops are paired with buttery soft maxi skirts and figure hugging dresses feature puff sleeves for added WOW factor, adding a playful touch to the classic little black dress. T-shirt dresses come in structured fabrics and feature flared flick hems and thigh high splits, adding a touch ofromance to demure styles. Using awarm range of colours, including vibrant oranges, pillar box reds and emerald greens, the palette is a nod to the creative director’s background having grown up in energetic Istanbul city.
