Colour Inspiration December - The Christmas Edition

Helen Cloke colour inspiration limited edition kit

Ahhhh Pohutukawa, the vibrant harbinger of New Zealand Summer and of festive celebrations!  That’s what has inspired this month’s colour theme for this summer fun bra.

Don't you just love those colours portrayed in our native pohutukawa? Have you ever even stopped to notice how many different colours there are - take a look our inspiration image - an array of greens, the traditional red of course, and even a peach and yellow tips on the ends of those glorious blooms.



The main fabric is a stunning, weighty and drapey, stretch satin with a red and green floral design on an off-white base.

The stretch percentage of this fabric is around 15%.  Red and yellow elastics add to the vibrancy, soothed by peach powernet.

The charm of this bra lies in the delicate red gem which you can combine with a peach bow to create a gorgeous embellishment.



You could use this kit to create a lovely Grace bra by Annie and Myras.  Or a Classic Bra by Pin Up Girls. 

My tip for a matching set would be to play up on the red and make some red stretch mesh panties.

This kit is available in either 12mm and 19mm findings
