It's true. We're obsessed.
Every March it starts. Panic around the office. “I’ve got FIVE weddings this summer, What am i going to wear?”
It’s the dilemma we have every year. As soon as spring hits and wedding invites start falling on the doormat.
But if summer 2016 was all about Self Portrait, and it really was (sorry bank balance), then prepare to get really rahlly riled up about Rixo this year.
Rixo has fast become the fash-packs go-to for chic, vintage-inspired pieces and we couldn’t be any more in love. The fact that we don’t have to save up three months worth of pay checks to buy anything is simply an added bonus!
For anyone who played ‘Spot The Self Portrait’ drinking games at a wedding last year will know how important it is to wear the It dress, first. And this summer it’s going to be Rixo.
Championed by professional clotheshorse Millie Mackintosh, Rixo gives GREAT style – swathes of higgledy-piggledy prints with a serious ’70s vibe on dresses loved for their dress-up, dress-down versatility. Srsly everything is so good.
Whether you’re wedding-bound, BBQ-bound, or invite-pending, Rixo’s wares offer just the right amount of waft to keep you looking cool all year long.
The ‘Camellia’ dress – one of the brands first designs from their debut collection- a breezy midi-length style with blouson sleeves and pleated side-splits, is still one of the brands best sellers and is now available in a choice of prints.
Team yours with chunky ankle boots and an oversized denim jacket when it’s raining – thanks British Summertime – then swap to lace-up sandals when the sun comes out– smug in the knowledge that your dress not only looks three times more expensive than it is but that it will look just as good next summer too.
Born from the brains of ex-ASOS buyers Henrietta Rix and Orlagh McCloskey, Rixo was never planned to be a print-heavy brand. Set up from their west London flat in 2015, the London College of Fashion alumni duo received such a great response from their first two prints that it was a no-brainer to create more.
Did we mention all the prints are hand designed by Henrietta and Orlagh? On 100% silk? No? Well, that’s just another reason to love them even more. Nothing is mass produced.
Handbags, accessories and jewellery are all set to join the collection soon too – i mean what more could we ask for?
Basically we just can’t get enough of this brand. Expect to see Rixo at a wedding near you soon!
